having a baking donut tin it’s a problem, because every time you open the wardrobe and you see it you feel the need to bake donuts again and again, non stop 24hrs 7 days per week. and that’s what happened to me.

I wanted to try to bake something lighter than the other chocolate donuts that I bake few weeks ago, and I’m so happy with the result! they have a soft texture, the perfect quantity of cinnamon and an amazing glaze, in fact it’s the best one that I tried to make until now because it’s so easy to work with it. the bad thing is that they went so quickly, but that’s also a good signal that they’re bloody delicious without doubt.

let’s bake!
