Chocolate Doughnuts

I finally bought one!

Yup, I bought a doughnut pan!

I love doughnuts. Like, can’t keep them in the house, because that’s all I’ll eat until they are gone- love. So, for that reason alone, I have held out in buying a doughnut pan. However, I finally gave in. To the voices in my head (they were getting really demanding!).

Now, I am in trouble! The doughnuts are delicious. And I want to keep eating them!

Please, kind readers, come and take these doughnuts away from me.

Chocolate Doughnuts
Recipe adapted from Shugary Sweets
Makes 12 doughnuts

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cake flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray the doughnut pan with baking spray. Set aside.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add in the wet ingredients and stir until well combined. Fill each doughnut cavity about 3/4 full. Note: for easier filling, you can use a pastry bag or a zip-lock bag and snip off a corner. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, remove the doughnuts from the pan and place on a cooling rack for 10 minutes.

To make the glaze: Whisk together the butter, powdered sugar, and milk, until it is well combined and smooth. After the doughnuts  have cooled for 10 minutes, dip the tops into the glaze. Return to the cooling rack to let the glaze set, or eat immediately! Enjoy!

Note: I used a simple powdered sugar glaze for the doughnuts, but I think they would taste even better with a chocolate glaze. Or by adding mini chocolate chips to the batter. I really like the texture of the doughnuts, but the chocolate flavor seemed a little mild to me (not that it stopped me from eating more than I should have!).

Made with love, not calories!
