Chocolate Buttermilk Donuts with Raspberry Cream Cheese Glaze

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!
