You say doughnuts, i say donuts!


I've had the urge to make donuts for about a month now, but either didn't have the time or the right recipe. I had some buttermilk staring at me every time I opened the refrigerator, so finally decided to look for a buttermilk donut recipe. I found a nearly perfect one here.

I had some leftover chocolate ganache from baking this cake last week.


So some donuts got a chocolate ganache glaze, and some got coated in cinnamon sugar, per the recipe. Yum!


They turned out slightly bland, but I think that could easily be remedied with some additional salt. Now that I know they are so easy to make, I'll definitely experiment some more.





P.S. The heart shapes are in honor our 22th anniversary...today!

Happy Anniversary again! Hey, bring some of the ganache to Pac Rim. We don't need the donuts or cake underneath, just the chocolate will be fine.

Ohmigosh they look so goood! Funny the last two days I've been craving donuts. Yesterday I bought one. Today the coffee shop downstairs already ran out by the time I got there. So I had a bagel. Similar shape but it's not a donut! Belated happy anniversary.
