I mentioned that I was craving chocolate blood orange glazed doughnuts again, but I decided to try a different recipe for my second experiment in baking doughnuts.
My mom gave me a doughnut pan for my birthday, so expect many more experiments.
I used a doughnut recipe from Joy the Baker's post on double chocolate cake doughnuts and Heather Christo's recipe for chocolate glaze from her post on banana doughnuts with chocolate glaze.
I made small changes: I substituted a small amount of vinegar + almond milk for the buttermilk.
I used semisweet chocolate chips instead of chopped dark chocolate in the glaze. It was rich and delicious.
Since the second recipe made more, I had extra glaze, some of which I spooned right into my mouth. It also would have been delicious on strawberries, marshmallows, etc. as chocolate fondue.
How could you go wrong with cream + chocolate?! I'm not embarrassed.
This was also my second try at taking photos of my doughnuts. I think they look better than my first. The glaze was so shiny and photogenic. I have much to learn about photography, but I'm having fun practicing.
