I think we should start off the week with a heavy hitter, by that I mean something to hit the tastebuds and the belly hard. A donut—deep-fried flour doused in sugar. Add a cup of coffee to that and it’s almost a perfect breakfast. Well, it is to me.
With that I thought it’s about time I get it on with becoming more adept at making donuts. To start, I tweaked this apple sauce doughnut recipe from Better Homes and Gardens to make it a chocolate donut.
Hit the jump here to read how I turned an applesauce doughnut into a chocolate love affair.
Lastly, and as always, if I can please ask you guys–if you are going to pin any of the images please do so from Better Homes and Gardens and not here, since the recipes reside over there. Thanks!

Gorgeous chocolate donuts, Naomi! Love that you converted an applesauce-based recipe. Nothing like chocolate baked goodness with some crispiness and glaze to go with coffee for breakfast! Pinning from BHG!

Love these… off to pin them from BHG!
These are the most scrumptious looking chocolate doughnuts!
Hi. I made these this morning because of this post. Really nice recipe. I kept the cinnamon in because I am Italian and that’s how we roll and took some left over vanilla buttercream frosting, heated it up and added some carnation malt powder for the glaze. Oh my. Wonderful. Good job transforming one recipe to a completely different experience.
My favorite chocolate donut is from Dynamo Donuts in SF – it’s spiced and vegan. They also make a milk chocolate one with a rosy icing. Divine, really.
Love the pictures and the donuts sure looks good, need one now.
These look amazing. For some reason I can’t see the full recipe over at BHG. I can just see the recipe list and then it cuts off after 1 cup sugar and I can’t scroll down any further. Any ideas?
