Have you ever rolled out of bed in the morning with a great idea?
I did the other day…it was a chocolate donut with a raspberry glaze. I thought about it for a day or two and then decided to make these.
Wow. Love was in the air. It’s almost like having dessert for breakfast, which is something I can deal with every now and then. Deeeelicious!
Raspberry and chocolate are definitely a match made in heaven. I love, love, love how easy and quick baked donuts are to make. These can be on the table in no time. Who knows what combo I’ll be dreaming of next time?
In case, you’re wondering this is the donut pan that I’m so crazy in love with!
