Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 9


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 package Carnation Breakfast Chocolate Malt Drink Mix
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips or broken up/crushed pieces of chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tbsp sour cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 heaping tbsp canola oil

For the Topping

  • powdered sugar


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, stir the flour, sugar, drink mix powder, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, and baking soda until evenly incorporated.
  • In separate, medium sized bowl, whisk the vanilla, egg, sour cream, milk, and oil together until the mixture's smooth and completely incorporated.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the mixing bowl, and mix on low speed until just combined.
  • Transfer the batter into a ziplocking bag. Snip off one end, and pipe the batter into the greased and floured donut pan, stopping below the rim to allow for expansion.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Set aside the pan of cooked donuts, and let them cool completely before removing from the pan.
  • Transfer the cooled donuts to a serving tray. Add a handful of powdered sugar to a sifter and gently shake the sifter out over top of the donuts, until the desired amount of sugar coating has settled.
  • Serve the donuts with a glass of cold milk and enjoy.
