Finally we are so close to Christmas, I love it is my favorite time to cook or bake. It was my mom's favorite time so that's why I'm always nostalgic!
Today I was finally able to make this recipe, baked chocolate donuts (not fried) and they were very good I hope you like them.
These easy homemade chocolate donuts are filled with a fudgy chocolate filling and chocolate glaze.
And here two weeks from Christmas again in Quarantine, isn't it a crazy world?
But I remember the lovely Anna Frank in a more difficult time than us, locked up and still celebrate their Pesaj (Passover seder)
We cannot be less. Merry Christmas to all!

Dip the tops of the donuts into the chocolate glaze and place on a cooling rack to set.
You can garnish with some Christmas sprinkles.
NOTE : If you dont have a donut pan you can use a muffins pan like this.
The first time I made baked donuts I didn't have a donuts pan and I use this idea.
Cooking spray or oil
Take a square piece of foil and place ir over of your fingers.
It needs to be large enough to cover the bottom of each cup in the muffin tin.
5" x 5" square works ok.
Fold the foil around your finger gently folding the sides up, to create a mold.
Place into the cup of your muffin tin and press into place. Repeat for remaining cups
