“Fake” Doughnuts

I had to share this with you guys… this is not really a new recipe, in fact is the SAME batter recipe I made last, it is the super fluffy waffle recipe(minus the grains)!!! Yes, believe or not it is, and it comes out pretty good! 🙂
The thing is that my son Alex wanted waffles, so there I go, I start getting the batter ready and he happened to walk by the self where I keep our little donut maker, and of course right away he says: Mommy!!! I don’t want waffles, I want donuts!!!! Right now please!!!!
I tried to convince him that we’d make them next time, and it was not working, so it just crossed my mind… why not try to make these cute little doughnuts with the waffle batter? I was not convinced at all but I gave it a try, and let me tell you… they are goooood!!! Of course as all of you know: everything is good with chocolate. So here they are… please give them a try if you happened to have a mini donut maker, I promise you won’t be disappointed 😉
Only keep in mind just to add a little dollop of batter, you don’t want them to overflow
"Fake" Doughnuts

“Fake” Doughnuts

Here is a super simple and easy chocolate glaze recipe:

4 tablespoons of good quality unsweetened cocoa powder (the better the quality the better the results, of course)
2 tablespoons of heavy cream, plus 1 tablespoon of water mixed together (if not use regular milk or even water)
1 1/2 of powdered sugar

In a bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, and slowly stir in the liquid. Whisk until you get a silky and smooth glaze, literally it takes a minute to make. Adjust the liquid until you get a dippable consistency glaze.
Dip these cute guys and let them set for a few minutes to harden slightly, if you can that is…
With a child next to me I had to make them with sprinkles which by the way made them even look cuter!!!
Of course like any other kind of doughnuts these are better enjoyed the same day you make them. We couldn’t almost let them set… we ate them right away!
Enjoy!!!
