Baked Mini Chocolate Donuts

Ever since I discovered the wonderful world of food blogging and the many awesome home-cooks out there, my favorite thing to say is “I CAN make these at home!!” That’s also my favorite line to say to my husband who drools at all the baked goods at the grocery stores. Sometimes I say it to get him away from that section and sometimes I’ve already seen those being baked at one of the talented blogger site.

So in the pre-blogging days, if you had told me to make a donut at home, I would have said No way—José. But now, I’m a changed person—anything and everything can be made at home—ask those uber talented Daring Bakers group. I can never in my life muster courage to sign up for one of those.

This made 24 mini-donuts for me. My son snacked on a couple before glazing and during glazing (as you can see in the picture). I halved the recipe for glaze and still had plenty left over, so the next time I would may be just make ¼ of the recipe.
