This week was someone’s birthday…
This cutie turned 22!
Instead of a traditional birthday cake, I wanted something different. Usually he requests a banana cream pie for his birthday but I can only handle so much pudding and whipped cream before I enter into a dairy coma.
As I searched the web for ideas, I came across a recipe for DOUGHNUTS.
Simple, chocolate doughnuts with sprinkles.
It was the clear choice for Justin’s 22nd birthday dessert.
I followed the Brown Buttered Baked Doughnut recipe from the blog of Joy the Baker, a personal hero of mine in the kitchen.
This was my first time making homemade doughnuts and surprisingly it was simple! Lucky I had most of all the ingredients on hand other than a doughnut baking pan (I found mine at Joann’s and can’t wait to use it more!) and buttermilk.
I paired doughnuts with milk-of course!
I loved how the chocolate looks! Yummy!!
The doughnuts turned out great with beautiful chocolate dipping and bright sprinkles-the only thing I would change would be to double the original recipe! It only makes 6 doughnuts…they disappeared way too fast!
Over all the birthday boy was happy with his classic chocolate doughnuts, a glass of milk and a new watch.
Here’s the recipe from Joy the Baker:
