There are two things in the world that go incredibly with coffee – chocolate and doughnuts. Not only does coffee go beautifully with a freshly baked doughnut, but it helps bring out all that beautiful chocolate flavour. That’s why these chocolate and espresso doughnuts are so good – the flavours just make sense.
The doughnuts themselves are a simple and flavoursome chocolate, but it’s the rich espresso and chocolate icing that really sets them apart. The bold flavours of the coffee bring out a beautiful richness in the cocoa and impart a lingering hint of coffee upon the doughnuts. If you love a good cup of coffee, these doughnuts will be right up your alley!
Unlike many doughnuts these ones are baked, making them not only healthier than their fried counterparts but also much quicker to make – no heated oil required! While you will need a doughnut pan to make them it’s definitely worth popping out and picking one up – not only are baked doughnuts delicious, but they’re super easy to make – you’ll have a batch prepared, baked and iced in less than 30 minutes.
The finished doughnuts make the perfect treat to enjoy for afternoon along with your favourite hot drink – like this Fairtrade London Tea. Delish!
