Christmas Wreath Doughnuts

Posted on 12/06/2012 by dome_girl
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.
Christmas Wreath Donut 


I made these Christmas Wreath Doughnuts by baking a batch of chocolate cake in a doughnut pan, then decorating them with Wilton's leaf tip #352, and piping the berries and ribbons on with a #4 tip. Keep your icing soft, because you'll need your hands to still work when it comes to eating one when you're done decorating.

Baked Chocolate Doughnuts

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp melted butter or oil (I usually use oil)
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup lukewarm water

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375F.

Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, and stir until well mixed.

Make 3 wells in the mixture, filling the first with melted butter/oil, the second with vinegar, and the third with vanilla

Pour water over mixture and mix thoroughly with a fork. Spoon batter into a greased doughnut pan, and bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes before removing!

the first one took about 10 minutes, but once i settled on a technique, it was only 2-3 minutes each. :)

I'm sure I'd take 1/2 an hour or more per doughnut. You have all my awe for this one. Awesome.

I've done nothing for the holidays yet for myself. Too busy getting other people's Christmas orders ready!

did you use a mini donut pan or a regular size one?
dome_girl 6th-Dec-2012 10:21 pm (UTC)
a regular one (but made a few minis with the extra batter)

These look so festive. And delicious! Some day I will have a doughnut pan.

Also, props for spelling doughnuts the only way it should be spelled. ;)
