Buttermilk Donuts w/ Dark Chocolate Glaze

I got a donut pan for my bridal shower and I was so excited to start making donuts. This is actually my first time making donuts and I was surprised by how good they were. I am also excited to make donuts by frying them and trying new flavors! My absolute favorite donuts are regular cake donuts with milk chocolate frosting and peanuts! 

You'll need for the donuts
Doughnut pan
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
2 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla

Directions for the donuts
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. 2. Grease and flour donut pan. 3. In a large bowl mix together all the ingredients starting with the dry ingredients until well mixed. 4. Full each donut hole until 2/3 filled. 5. Bake for 10-12 minutes. 6. Let cool completely on cooling rack.

You'll need for glaze
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
4 tbsp dark special cocoa powder
3 tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla

Directions for glaze
1.Whisk ingredients until smooth. 2. Dip donuts in once cool. 3. Let dry then dip in for 2 coats of glaze.

I can't wait to try making donuts again with new flavors and maybe some toppings. Enjoy.
