And here is my other contribution to Kenzie’s bridal shower yesterday, chocolate donuts, some of them even heart shaped! The recipe comes from a blog called “Milk & Honey”. Bob said he really liked these because sometimes baked donuts don’t taste like “real” donuts but for him, these tasted like real donuts.
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 For donuts: Preheat oven to 450 and spray donut pan liberally with cooking spray.
2 Stir together flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add egg, vanilla and milk and stir together for 1 minute. Add oil and continue to stir until just combined. Transfer batter to large measuring cup or bowl with spout for easy pouring. (I put the batter in a large Ziploc bag and snip a corner off and then pipe it into the pan.)
3 Fill each cavity 2/3 full of batter. Bake 7 – 9 minutes or until donuts spring back when lightly touched. Cool before icing.
4 For glaze: Combine chocolate chips, butter, corn syrup and vanilla in double boiler. (I put in microwave for 30 second intervals.) Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Dip donuts in glaze. Top with jimmies or sprinkles if desired.
