Coffee Donuts (with chocolate peanut butter glaze)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour , sifted
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1.5 tablespoons instant espresso powder
- ¼ cup melted unsalted butter
- ⅓ cup buttermilk (or milk)
- 1 large egg
- baking spray (for greasing pan)
Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze
- 1 tablespoon smooth natural peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter , softened to room temperature
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 2.5 tablespoons icing sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk (I used 2% milk fat)
- pinch salt
- 2 tablespoons nuts , chopped
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and instant espresso powder. Stir to combine and lay to one side.
- To flour mixture add melted butter and buttermilk (or milk) and mix using a hand mixer (or simply a whisk) and mix to combine. Add egg and mix until just combined.
- Grease a 6-unit donut pan with baking spray and distribute batter evenly (spoon or pipe in).
- Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until they're baked through. They're done when a toothpick comes out clean of wet batter when inserted into the donuts. Don't overbake.
- Let donuts cool in pan for about 10 minutes before removing. Allow to fully cool on a wire rack before glazing
- Once donuts are completely cool, invert donuts into glaze, one at a time, and place on a rack and sprinkle with nuts. Enjoy!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze
- In a small food processor, combine all ingredients and process until combined and smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes. Pour into a bowl.
