I woke up craving doughnuts. Oh, don’t even act like you’ve never done the same… haha, but it’s kinda weird because I haven’t had a “real” doughnut in years, literally. I guess doughnuts are just one of those things you don’t forget. Anyway, I just went with it, you’re welcome wink wink.
So not to confuse these doughnuts with chocolate doughnuts, like the cocoa kinda. These doughnuts are made with chocolate coffee, also a newish obsession of mine! I don’t drink coffee often because caffeine makes me a little jittery and my tummy doesn’t like it very much, but when I do, I make it count! So I replaced the liquid in these doughnuts with coffee; I mean, you can have your coffee and eat it too, right?!
I’ll also let you in on a little secret… these doughnuts didn’t start out as chocolate coffee doughnuts. I actually had some leftover sweet potato puree from my Savory Sweet Potato Waffles with Sage Butter Gravy, so I thought, oooh! I’ll make doughnuts with it! Ya… that batch went right in the trash. I didn’t put enough flour in the batter so they just didn’t set up. Well, I didn’t make the same mistake with these chocolate coffee doughnuts thank goodness.
I’ve also been obsessed with pitaya powder lately. Any chance I get to make my food pink, I take it! It’s easy to add some pitaya powder to your icing, and smoothies, your cakes, rice, chia pudding, and even pasta! (which is on my list to try next). And aside from making your food pretty, there are some nutritional benefits to using pitaya powder!
**NOTE: you will probably have leftover icing
