I feel like we hae finally turned a corner as far as the craziness goes… I hope! Getting back into routines and not shuttling back and forth between houses is nice.
Work is just about complete on the dining room – we even got a picture up!:
We will be getting our living room couch and chaise this week, finally! We have had a trundle bed set up as a couch in the living room for now. Shades of dorm rooms LOL! It’s beginning to feel more like our house now, little by little.
Anyway, back to donuts – or getting to the donuts… I had bought a box of Bisquick for a recipe that I can’t recall now, but we needed to use of the rest before we moved and I found recipes for Bisquick donuts to use it up. We liked them so much and they were so easy that we bought another box after we moved LOL!
Here is one of the recipes from the Betty Crocker website
This is a half recipe and it makes 6 or 7 small donuts.
Baked Chocolate Donuts
Makes 6 mini donuts.
Preheat oven to 425 F.
- 1 cup (120 grams) of Bisquick Heart Smart
- 1.5 tablespoons of sugar
- 1.5 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup of milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
In a medium bowl, mix the Bisquick, sugar and cocoa powder to blend. In another small dish, beat the egg, add the milk and vanilla.
Then add this to the dry mix. Mix until just moistened. Overmixing can make tough donuts, and you don’t want tough donuts 😀
Spray the donut pan with cooking spray and spoon into the pan.
This is a little full, actually – so keep that in mind. I just didn’t feel like doing another pan for 1 donut (lazy).
Bake for 6-7 minutes. Check with a toothpick if you want, but they will spring back to the touch.
See how I got this pan just a little full? Turn over to the pretty side on a cooling rack 🙂
Here are the stats for just the donuts:
Calories (per donut): 106, 2.7 grams of fat, 18.2 grams of carbs, 3.3 grams of protein, 0.4 grams of fiber.
Top with any glaze that you want. This glaze is 1/3 cup of powdered sugar with a tablespoon of milk and 1/2 tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter.
The donuts are not too sweet, which is nice and so easy and fast to make. You can have donuts in about 20 minutes from start to finish.
It’s funny how I bought a donut pan kind of on a whim and we actually use it fairly often. John loves the baked donuts, as do I.
New boiler for our furnace tomorrow and the new furniture! I also have a product review and giveaway for this week, so stay tuned!
