Chocolate Glazed Donuts

My Mom bought me, well really I should say, my Mom bought my kids this donut maker.  You see, I rarely buy donuts.  Like maybe once a year.  I like them, I am just not into them.  It's probably the "fried" thing.  My kids however LOVE donuts.  Donut holes.  In fact they are my motivation for buying donuts because otherwise I would never go.
Enter this little machine and you can take the "fry" out of donuts.  It's pretty handy and the donuts were pretty good. A very fun thing to do with the kids.  There are two sizes out there- so if you are interested- shop around.

Chocolate Glazed Chocolate Donuts

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 egg
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl.  In a large measuring cup or a small bowl, combine wet ingredients: buttermilk, egg, oil and vanilla.  Add the wet to the dry.  Mix until just combined.  Pour mixture into a pastry bag or a plastic container with a small hole cut in it at the corner.  This will make it so much easier to put into the donut forms.  Once they come out of the donut cooker or your oven (you could easily do these in your oven in a donut pan- 350F for 10 to 20 minutes), pour glaze onto donut while it is still hot.

You could also make these donuts.

I am totally (unfortunately) into donuts. I could feel a little less guilty eating them this way. Maybe santa could get me one for christmas :)
