Description

These dark chocolate donuts are finished with a gorgeous blood orange glaze that takes advantage of the beautiful citrus fruit that is in season right now.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE DONUTS:
  • 1-½ cup Flour
  • ½ cups Dark Cocoa Powder
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • FOR THE BLOOD ORANGE GLAZE:
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
  • 2 Tablespoons Corn Syrup
  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ cups Blood Orange Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Heavy Cream

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 325ºF. Spray a donut pan with cooking spray.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, add the buttermilk, eggs and vanilla. Beat them together and add them to the dry ingredients.

Add the melted butter to the batter and mix until a batter has formed.

Spoon or pipe the batter into the donut pan and bake at 325ºF for 10 minutes.

Turn the donuts out onto a cooling rack and let the donuts cool.

While the donuts are baking, make the glaze by whisking all the glaze ingredients together.

When the donuts have cooled, dip them into the glaze. (I triple dunked them!)
