I got a doughnut pan for my birthday. Clearly I had to use it as soon as humanly possible.
For the chocolate doughnuts I used Joy the Bakers recipe. I actually did something pretty impressive and set everything up, you know that whole Mise en Place thing, yeah I did that. I even mixed the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients separately like the recipe suggests. Honestly I really think it made the whole process easier and cleaner. Maybe I can get behind this whole baking thing after all. For once I actually enjoyed the baking part of it all. To top is off doughnuts themselves were wonderfully light, fluffy and chocolaty. Basically they were perfect!
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup strongly brewed earl grey tea (plus extra if necessary)
In a small bowl whisk together confectioners’ sugar and tea, a few table spoons at a time, until the desired thickness is achieved.
To coat simply dip the doughnuts into the bowl and give them a good swirl. Carefully pull them out watching for drips and set them frosting side up on plate or rack to set.
