  • Author: Meghan Yager
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 1 dozen doughnuts (12 servings) 1x


Fluffy and light, these baked cherry einkorn cake doughnuts are ideal for summer mornings. The flavorful batter is so simple to make.



For the Doughnuts:

  • 1 cup full fat plain yogurt 
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose einkorn flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup pitted and chopped fresh cherries (about 34 ounces fresh cherries)

For the Chocolate Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup whole milk or almond milk
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar or honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 1/2 ounces dark chocolate, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Grease two standard donut pans with butter or oil. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, egg, sugar, melted butter, and vanilla extract. 
  3. Sift together dry ingredients into a medium bowl. Add dry ingredients and chopped cherries to the wet ingredients, gently folding them in until just combined. Do not overmix.
  4. Add the batter to the donut pans, using a pastry bag or a spoon, filling the openings 3/4 full.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden brown on the edges.
  6. Remove from the oven. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then turn out on the wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
  7. To make the glaze, whisk together all of the ingredients in a medium wide-mouthed bowl. Dip donuts into the glaze and let set on a cooling rack.
