So you may have caught on to the fact that I’m a sweets person by now. I could eat sweets for every meal. Yes, even dinner. As long as I could have a cracker afterwards to balance the sweet with salty. I do know my limits though. Like I told you on the Fried Ravioli post, I’m not too much into frying things. Pan-searing, lightly frying in a bit of olive oil are ok. But completely submerging something in oil just makes me feel dirty. 😉
That’s why I was absolutely thrilled to come across this amazing Chocolate Glazed Chocolate Baked Donuts recipe at Prevention RD. She has got some fabulous recipes that I cannot wait to try. I really wanted to make these donuts, so I went in search of a donut pan. It’s close to impossible to find one really. Don’t expect Walmart to have them. I was delighted to find this mini donut pan on Amazon for only $9.99 shipped. When I found this recipe I was really antsy to try it out. At 93 per donut, I was floored. That is for the full-size donuts and my pan is mini so mine will only have 46 calories per. When my donut pan came in the mail, I was really giddy. You can just imagine my excitement can’t you? My mail lady thinks I’m nuts.
My pictures aren’t quite as good as her’s, but you get the picture. This recipe was surprisingly easy, however I will say this- it’s fairly difficult getting the batter into those little donut wells. Because it’s round you don’t want to get the batter on the little thing in the middle. I managed to get it done with a spatula in one hand and a spoon in the other. I’d say this is little sacrifice for chocolate donuts.
