Chocolate Frosted Doughnuts

Years ago I could (and would) eat Dunkin’ Donuts almost everyday; now it is the best day ever when I have my hands on delicious D&D’s. A few Sunday’s ago I had that doughnut craving, so I whipped up these mouth-watering Chocolate Frosted Doughnuts. They are a baked doughnut with a nice fluffy texture and the glaze has a rich chocolate flavor. The recipe given makes 6 doughnuts, but the recipe is easily doubled…which I will do next time. These doughnuts are quick and simple to make, which is perfect for a lazy weekend morning. Writing about it now, there is a serious chance tomorrow I will be eating one of these doughnuts while sipping my coffee and enjoying a lazy morning. I hope you do the same!

YUMMY!

YUMMY!
