Vanilla, Chocolate and Cherry Donuts

Yum

Celebrating Valentine's Day should start first thing in the morning!
How about some home-made Vanilla, Chocolate and Cherry Donuts!



I bet you thought my donut pan was gathering dust in the cupboard.  Afterall, it's been a couple of weeks since I have shared a donut recipe.
NO WAY!  It's my favorite kitchen tool at the moment and I just love it!
Since Valentine's Day is all about love, naturally I thought of my donut pan...wink, wink.
If you are expecting breakfast in bed delivered with a dozen red roses, you might as well stop reading.  :)
This is for those of us that will start the day early with kiddos and then head off to activities and errands.
It's a sweet way to start Valentine's Day!
(I'm kidding...those of you receiving roses and breakfast in bed...the rest of us are just jealous, please keep reading.  Tee...hee...hee.)




These vanilla baked donuts filled with chocolate chunks and maraschino cherries are deeeeelishus!
And look at how cute!  They are mini!!!  So you can have lots to equal just 1 donut; really you can!


Valentine's Breakfast never looked sweeter!

Ingredients to make 2 dozen:
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup milk
1 Tbsp butter
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup chocolate chunks
12 maraschino cherries, chopped
non-stick spray
powdered sugar
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar.  Add egg.  Once incorporated, add flour, baking powder and baking soda.  Slowly add milk.  Mix until creamy.  Stir in chocolate chunks and chopped maraschino cherries.  Spray a mini donut pan with non-stick spray.  Spoon batter into pan, filling each 1/2 full.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.  Cool and roll in powdered sugar.


I see lots of hugs and kisses in your future!
And remember, the best things are little things that come in small packages OR come dusted in powdered sugar!
