Now on to my baking project: Chocolate Glazed Doughnuts!

I used this recipe from Oh She Glows for the baked doughnuts. Substitutions: I used skim milk, real butter and a flax egg.

When I initially went shopping for a donut pan, I could only find this mini bundt pan, but it works perfectly!

I sprinkled a little of this on top for good measure!

Perfectly fluffy!

For the icing I used this super simple recipe. I ended up quartering the recipe because I didn’t want leftover icing!

Skim milk, butter, sugar, vanilla extract and cocoa powder!

All done! Time to dip…

I’m not an artist or a real baker, but come on…this is one beautiful doughnut!

Unfortunately (wink, wink) there was some leftover icing that I was forced to use! So I covered a banana in the icing, topped it with shredded coconut, and put it in the freezer while I folded clothes. After a little while, I pulled them out and the chocolate had set…so I ate them. Smile

I haven’t tasted a glazed doughnut yet because I’m bringing them to Mojo’s for our girls night! So far our goal of one get together a month is going well (yea, I know it’s only March)!
