After debating whether to make banana pudding or key lime pound cake this week, I landed on Double Chocolate Cake Donuts…. Not sure how I made such a jump, but here we are!
Every time I try to make donuts from scratch I’m a little disappointed. They just taste like a differently shaped muffin. I guess I need to try fried yeast donuts, but that’s more effort than I’m willing to exert. However, the recipe I tried this week definitely felt more like a donut than cake! I used this recipe and made no substitutions at all. This recipe came together very easily and without a heavy duty mixer. I was skeptical about the frosting on top as it wasn’t sweet by itself, but it complemented the donut very well! You have to try these!
