Of course you can decorate the donuts according to your taste with colored sprinkles, light chocolate or many other things. You can let your imagination run wild!

  • Mix the flour, baking powder, ground vanilla and salt in a bowl and stir into the butter and sugar mixture.
  • Finally, add baking soda to the dough and pour the apple cider vinegar directly onto it so that the baking soda foams. Mix everything again very briefly.
  • Put the mixture in a piping bag and pour into a greased donut baking pan. The donut molds should be no more than half full with batter.

  • Carefully remove the donuts from the mold 1-2 minutes after baking and allow to cool.
  • In the meantime, for the topping, melt the chocolate over a water bath.
