This means that mom and dad stumble out of bed and sleepily bump around in the kitchen as we try to bake something new and exciting. I do the baking, Prince Charming does the fetching of ingredients and then helps with clean up.
Lately, the kids request donuts every weekend. While I love our cinnamon and spice donuts, it was time for a new donut flavor. I went with chocolate. They were amazing!
Preheat the oven to 350 and spray the donut pans.
Mix the dry ingredients together well with a whisk-work out the cocoa lumps.
Whisk the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring just enough to combine. Don't over-stir the batter.
Fill the donut pans. I used a spoon to spread the batter into each mold and then I smoothed the tops.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until donuts spring back when touched.
Let cool on wire rack and drizzle with glaze while still warm.
Makes 12 donuts.
Whisk ingredients together and pour over donuts. I put my glaze in a ziploc and piped it onto the donuts (less mess to clean later). You can also dip the donuts in the glaze. Since I don't have a wide shallow bowl in the apartment that would work for dipping, I did the piping. It seemed easiest at the time. If I had all my lovely dishes, I would probably just dip my donuts. But does it really matter when they will be gone in a matter of minutes? Presentation does not matter to my crew, only taste! You'll see what I mean in the next picture because the donuts sure aren't pretty!
Tiger has already requested these for next weekend. He actually wanted them again that same day. Then he asked for the next day. Then he settled on next weekend. So, these donuts will become regulars at our house I'm sure!
