Baked Mocha Donut Holes with Coffee Glaze

These mocha donut holes with a coffee glaze are a cup of joe in donut hole form. Unlike some mocha desserts that are more chocolate than coffee, mine tastes like coffee with a touch of chocolate.

Donut Hole Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and cooled slightly
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Coffee Glaze Ingredients

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons brewed coffee


Donut Hole Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 F.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, butter, coffee, and vanilla.
  • Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients a little at a time until just combined.
  • Spray wells of donut hole pans with non stick cooking spray. Fill wells 3/4 full with batter.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until donut holes bounce back when lightly touched.
  • Turn out onto cooling rack.

Coffee Glaze Instructions

  • In a small mixing bowl, mix powdered sugar and coffee. If necessary, add more coffee or powdered sugar to achieve a thick but still liquid consistency. Although the mental image is totally unappealing, look for a texture like Elmer's glue.
  • Dip donut holes into the glaze and return to the cooling rack (you may want to put something under the rack to catch the dripping glaze).
  • Dip donut holes a second or third time if you prefer a thicker glaze.
  • Eat immediately or cover and eat within two days.


If you don't have a donut hole pan, you can make these in a mini-muffin pan. They just won't be as round.
