Baking Chocolate Glazed Doughnuts with Janet

Whoever decided that donuts should be served for breakfast is a genius!

In my typical fashion, I wanted to bake something that would "WOW" my family.

After a trip to the local Dunkin Donuts, I realized that these treats were something that I could probably make (healthier) and be a big hit with the crew.

I promptly went shopping for some Wilton's pans (another one of my common practices) and since I couldn't decide on whether to make full size or mini donuts, I bought both pans. :)

I followed the recipe on the pan for the plain cake donuts and the chocolate glaze. One layer of chocolate glaze was not enough so I double dipped them. I sprinkled them and let the kids eat them for an afternoon snack.

They were satisfyingly job here is done. :) ~ Janet

Baked Doughnuts:

2 cups cake flour, sifted
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
¾ cup buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Non-stick vegetable pan spray

Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray Doughnut Pan with vegetable cooking spray.
Doughnuts: In large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Add buttermilk, eggs and butter. Beat until just combined. Fill each pan cavity approximately 2/3 full.
Bake 7-9 minutes or until the tops of the doughnuts spring back when touched. Let cool in pan 4-5 minutes before removing. Doughnuts are best served fresh.

Chocolate Glaze:

½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1-2 teaspoons hot water

In medium bowl, melt chocolate chips, butter, and corn syrup on 50% power for 1 minute, stirring frequently until completely melted. Stir in 1 teaspoon of hot water, stirring until the glaze is thick and smooth. Add another teaspoon if glaze is too thick. Use immediately to glaze doughnuts.

to finish: 

crushed candy bars

Use anything you like to top them with!!
