chocolate glazed donuts




I try to give credit to the base recipes I used as a blueprint, but there was about 6 different ones I perused to get this. This is my first attempt and they were very good, but not very dense like the one's I remember from the donut shop in my fatter days. Not sure what to use to make them denser, so suggestions welcomed! Butter maybe?  Someone suggested a bit of CoConut flour, so I may try that next time, maybe 1/4 cup with an extra egg. (coconut flour soaks up a lot of liquid)


Chocolate Glazed Donuts
Donuts:

2 cups almond flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 cup Whey Low (or sweetener of choice)

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

½ tsp vanilla

3 large eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 cup almond milk


Glaze: 

1 cup powdered Whey Low (could use splenda  I think)

1 to 3 tbsp almond milk

¼ tsp Vanilla


Preheat to 350 degrees


Spray donut tin with “Pam”.


In a large bowl whisk  the dry ingredients together till combined well. Stir in eggs, and vanilla. Add almond milk and stir until it’s a cake like batter.Fill donut tin 2/3 full.  Bake for 18 to 20 minutes.  I turned them out on a small cookie sheet and immediately dipped them in the glaze using a fork. I was hoping the glaze would soak in a bit. Next time I may let them cool a bit and maybe it won't soak in as much.


For the glaze, whisk together everything till smooth.

For the sized donut pan I have it made 2 batches of 6 donuts each, with one side car in a cup, about the size of a muffin. I left this last one in the oven when I shut it off cause it was still a little liquidy. (then I forgot it was in there and stuck something else in the oven and burnt it! Duh!)


These were very very good. and even better today.  Still gonna work on the glaze and see if I can get it more like a glaze that stays on the outside. Does that make sense????

here's a picture of the leftovers and the pan I used.  It's a Wilton and very non stick!  Just rinse it and don't put in the dishwasher.  I looked everywhere for this in stores and couldn't find it.  Bought it off of Amazon, for more money than I wanted to pay, but I have a feeling I'm gonna be using this a lot::::


Now I think I may play with a Punkin Donut for the fall.

Hope you try it!
