Chocolate & Peanut Butter Baked Donuts

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Baked Donuts

Chocolate and peanut butter is one of my favourite combinations, and I’m also a huge baked donut fan – I have lots of baked donut recipes on my blog. So these Chocolate & Peanut Butter Baked Donuts were bound to happen eventually! They are a baked peaut butter flavoured donut, which are so simple to make with a donut pan. I highly recommend investing in a donut pan (or two!), they are not expensive and they’re easy to obtain from Amazon, plus there are so many yummy baked donut recipes on my blog that you’ll be able to make with them! Then I’ve dipped them in milk chocolate and drizzled them with peanut butter – delicious!

Jump straight to the recipe!

In a mixing bowl I stirred together the flour, salt and sugar.

In another bowl I whisked up the milk with the eggs, oil and peanut butter.

Then I poured the egg mixture into the flour and whisked them together.

I put the batter into a piping bag and divided it between the donut tins.

They baked for 12 minutes, then I removed them from the tins and left them to cool.

I melted the dark chocolate and dipped the top half of each donut into it. Then I drizzled warmed peanut butter over them and left them to set.

The Chocolate & Peanut Butter Baked Donuts were absolutely divine and just the thing for a chocolate and peanut butter lover like me.

Although it’s super hard to resist tucking in straight away, baked donuts get more moist the next day so if you can wait, or there are any leftovers, then you’re in for a treat!

For the donuts

  • 175 g Caster sugar
  • 175 ml Milk cow's or plant milk will both work
  • 30 ml Vegetable oil
  • 2 Eggs large
  • 50 g Peanut butter
  • 225 g Self raising flour
  • Butter or baking spread for greasing

For decoration

  • 250 g Milk chocolate melted
  • 50 g Peanut butter warmed


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 and grease two donut tins with the butter

  2. Mix together the caster sugar, milk, vegetable oil, peanut butter and eggs in a bowl with a whisk

  3. Add the self raising flour and whisk in

  4. Divide the batter between the trays. You can put the batter into a piping bag to make it a bit neater to dispense into the trays, but you can do it with a spoon too

  5. Bake them for 12 minutes, then remove them from the tin (I use a spoon to gently prise them out) and leave to cool on a cooling rack

  6. Melt the milk chocolate in the microwave, make sure to use a microwave safe bowl. Heat the chocolate for 30 seconds, stir it, then heat in 10 second bursts, stirring in between

  7. Set the donuts onto a rack with a baking tray or some baking paper underneath to catch any drips of chocolate

  8. Dip the top half of the donuts in the milk chocolate and place back on the rack

  9. Warm the peanut butter for 30 seconds in he microwave, put it in a small piping bag and cut a small amount off the end, drizzle it over the wet milk chocolate. Or you could drizzle with a spoon

  10. Leave to set, or put them in the fridge to set the chocolate faster

  11. Store leftover in an airtight container and eat within 3 days

    Mmmmm Kat your doughnuts look incredible! I saw them on FB last night and thought wow! and also yum!
    I do not know how you are managing to keep posting recipes with your new baby, I can also assume that 1). you are just super organised or 2). you worked very hard to get lots done before he was born! Whichever one, your bakes keep on looking amazing xx
    thank you for linking to #Bakeoftheweek

    Oh yes, peanut butter and chocolate is one of the best combinations. Your doughnuts look absolutely gorgeous and I bet they taste pretty wonderful too. I’ve been meaning to invest in some doughnut rings for at least 5 years 😂

    Thanks for sharing with #CookBlogShare

    These are just beautiful Kat. I am going to get myself a donut pan and make them. I have always been put off before just thinking they would be dry but love the look of yours and the oil added I’m sure this is the perfect recipe for me to try. Thanks so much for bringing them to #BakingCrumbs

  4. Those look so amazing! I just bought a donut pan this fall and have only used it once. We’ll have to try these. Pinned.

    1. I hope you enjoy them! There are several donut recipes on my blog for you to get some use out of your donut pan with 🙂

  5. We eat so many donuts in our house that we really need to invest in our own pan. What a fabulous taste combination and they look so perfectly neat. Thanks so much for sticking with us at #BakeoftheWeek x
