A Perfectly Delicious Recipe
Adding coffee to chocolate desserts can bring out the chocolate flavor and make them even more satisfying. This recipe uses strong brewed Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee, which tastes smooth and fabulous. Choose Decaf if you’re serving these donuts later in the day, or stick with Regular or Half Caff if you’re serving these donuts for an energizing breakfast.
A Great Start to the Day
These donuts are a great way to start the day, especially with a cup of Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee to accompany them. Low-acid coffee is gentler on the stomach than regular coffee, and it’s also sweeter and less bitter.
The recipe is easy to make. Just mix up the batter, pipe it into donut molds with cooking spray and cocoa powder, and bake the donuts. Glaze them with a simple glaze and add peanuts if desired. You don’t have to worry about deep frying or using yeast. If you don’t have a donut mold pan, you can use a baking sheet and just pipe the batter in circles. You can use a pastry bag or make a piping bag as described in the recipe.
You can make the glaze ahead of time if you like. The peanuts are optional, but can be satisfying and beautiful on top of these dark donuts. They also pair nicely with fruit. You can even slice bananas and place them on top of the glaze when the donuts are warm.
