How to Make Chocolate Coffee Donuts?

The secret behind perfect donuts is a firm dough, and you make it with all-purpose flour, yeast, milk, sugar, eggs and butter. In fact, milk is basically our only liquid, and that’s what we want, a thick dough you can shape and fry without falling apart.

Now, what’s a donut without the right glaze? Once you fry your donuts and let them cool down and coat them with cinnamon and sugar, cover them in a glossy sugar glace, or a crackly chocolate layer. For me, it’s chocolate all the way, so I melt the dark chocolate and mix it with instant coffee for one tasty donut. Let the chocolate harden while you make yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy a coffee shop-quality breakfast!
