I bought the cutest little baked donut pan at an estate sale for a quarter a few months ago. We might be hooked.
The first recipe we tried was this one from Joy the Baker. It was pretty good, a nice, dense cake donut. But I craved a little more flavor.
Yesterday I made these chocolate donuts from Use Real Butter. They were delicious- chocolate cake in the shape of a donut. That's just not terrible! N wants me to make them for her birthday treats at school.
I think next I want to find an apple/apple cider version to try, maybe rolled in cinnamon sugar. I think this may be the year of the donut; we'll try a new recipe every month. That's a resolution to stick with.
