The lovely Lora over at Cake Duchess has an amazing doughnut recipe I wish everyone would make! Her Baked Cake Doughnuts with Chocolate Glaze are perfectly fluffy, light and BAKED! In my book, anything baked is low in calories and that includes: cakes, cupcakes, croissants, danishes. Because obviously baked products are lower in fat, right? Right! Well, back to these doughnuts which I made a few weeks ago. You need a doughnut pan and I miraculously had a mini doughnut pan in the kitchen, hidden between the box of green tea my Dad is obsessed with and an old sheet tray. I pulled it out, washed it and realized I’d never, ever used it!
I made Lora’s exact recipe and they came out marvelous! A simple chocolate ganache on some and powdered sugar on the others was all they needed. These would make an adorable foodie-treat for a friend. Or you could make dozens of these and Fedex ’em to me. Whichever way you go, I’m fine with it, just head over to Cake Duchess and make these! Email me if you need my address.
