Well the day is almost here, that day that you ether love or hate, normally depending on your relationship status. Is it Singles Awareness Day, or Valentines Day? Will you be listening to Taylor Swift, or Frank Sinatra? Weather you have a singles party to go to, (that would be me) or a special day planned with that special someone, everyone needs a little chocolate (maybe the singles need it more?). These doughnuts that are baked instead of fried and are tangy yet sweet at the same time.

Recipe notes: If you want a less tangy doughnut, use 1 cup of ether buttermilk or cream instead of the sour cream + yogurt. I originally added a couple of shots of expresso to the glaze, but I wouldn’t recommend it, the tangy + chocolate is enough flavor elements.
You will need a doughnut pan, I have this Wilton pan.
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking power
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup yogurt
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 tablespoons butter, melted
Heat oven to 325.
Coat your doughnut pan well with oil.
Mix together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt together in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl mix together the sour cream, yogurt, vanilla, eggs, and butter. Gentially stir in the wet ingredience into the flour mixture. Spoon the batter into the doughnut pan, fill to about 3/4 full. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack, then pour chocolate glaze on top.
1 cup dark chocolate, chopped
