Coffee Donuts with Peanut Butter Chocolate Glaze
These Coffee Donuts with Peanut Butter Chocolate Glaze can be prepped, baked, rested and garnished in under 25 minutes! Yes, you read that right. In no time at all you can have freshly baked donuts, from scratch, in your piehole faster than it will take you to drive to your favourite coffee shop. These babies are baked so they are way more guilt free than their fried counterparts. Espresso powder gives the base of this donut a lovely coffee touch and then there’s a super easy peanut butter chocolate glaze made with natural peanut butter and cocoa powder. What are you waiting for? Yummy donuts await!
This Monday is brought to you by DONUTS! You know that day of the week that most people kinda despise? These donuts make Monday and little more bearable. Plus, they are not as indulgent as you may think. They are baked so the fat content in these little beauties is on the lower side. You may just be able to eat two. You’re welcome! Have you ever read the nutritional content on some of those fried store bought/bakery donuts? You probably shouldn’t. For reals. It will probably scare you or, more likely, just ruin the dang thing for you. Make donuts at home; there’s no turning back once you do!
So if you read my last Monthly Favourites for February, then you know that this chicka got herself a brand spankin’ new donut pan – a 6 unit one to be exact. Annnnnd, that was totally intentional. What I love about this pan (and this recipe), is that there’s a small batch of donuts made. No one needs 12 donuts floating around their kitchen, or at least I don’t. Plus, donuts are SO much better made and eaten fresh, so 6 is plenty.
Haven’t ever made homemade donuts before, I consulted the wrapping that came on my Wilson pan. There was a base recipe for donuts that I adapted for my own tastes and that Peanut Butter Chocolate Glaze? Well, that one came outta my head and it is goooo-ooood! I’ve been obsessed with peanut butter, chocolate and coffee lately and one of my favourite smoothies is based on that flavour profile.
Dunk these bad boys in that Peanut Butter Chocolate Glaze, then sprinkle some nuts on them like you would confetti…..or as the cool kids say ‘make it rain.’ Truth be told, I don’t know what the cool kids say, but let’s pretend I do. Just roll with it, ok?
The inside of these Coffee Donuts have a lovely, moist cake-like texture and they go absolutely perfect with a tall, cold glass o’ milk……or just shoved right in your pie hole if you’ve just come in the door and you’re ravishing<——-not that I’ve ever done that. #YesIHave.
I think there’s a little mouse in my kitchen; it keeps taking bites out of my donuts——> hehehehehe
My world has changed since I’ve got my new donut pan and I highly recommend you get your hands on one too. It’s a lovely way to make fresh donuts right in your own kitchen for less dolla bills than store bought. Plus, you can control what’s in ’em and they are way healthier than those fried ones. Have on sold ya on a donut pan yet? I wouldn’t steer you wrong!
What’s your favourite type of donut? I know; how could you possibly have one answer for that question?! I think we should start a new tradition – every Monday starts with a donut. Who’s with me??
Hope you get a chance to try this recipe, you guys. You’re gonna love it! Oh, good news, I have another donut recipe coming up for you soon. You gotta have options, right?
Until next time, take care and chit chat again soon!
