I've always loved to read. Most Saturday mornings of my childhood you could find me lugging a bag full of books into our local library. Then college happened. And my free time and zest for reading for pleasure was kinda squelched. Now days, my book reading habit comes and goes in spurts. That said, I spend a lot of time reading random articles, pinterest pins, and recipes. There's not a day goes by that I don't read a recipe or two (or ten). Some of them I know I'll likely never make and then there are those that have me racing to the grocery store to get the necessary ingredients.
Today, I'm sharing with you one of those recipes. The kind that had my stomach growling at first sight.
Baker by Nature totally shaped my Saturday morning with her compelling perfect mix of chocolate and peanut butter in donut form. Yep. Uh huh. I can see that drool you're wiping from the corner of your mouth. You're already intrigued by this flavor combo sent from the Heavens.
I'm recounting this recipe in pictures because my words won't do them justice. (And it's rare I'm short on words...) So, rather than me retell you her recipe that I followed to a "T", I want to send you directly to the source. Visit her site for all the specifics on how to get these gloriously good babes in your hands (and belly).
Oh, and yes, I almost forgot to tell you: you do need a donut pan (or two) for this recipe. While I'm a staunchly against having too many single-use kitchen items take up the always cramped cabinet space, this one is a must. Well, if you like donuts, that is. If not, why are you still reading this? (Just kidding. kind of...)
Seriously though, the Wilton donut pans don't take up much room and they're totally worth having so you can satisfy your own donut hankering when it strikes. (Plus baked donuts made at home have to be healthier than those from the local shop. Right? Feel free to use that justification when you eat your second one of these suckers.)
May your schedule be clear enough for you to whip these up. And if it's not, they're pretty dang quick, so carve out the time. Then plan donut Saturday for the foreseeable future. [And get out your running shoes so you won't feel as guilty. Trade-offs, people. :)]
Until next time--
