Baked Doughnuts with Chocolate Glaze

 “Between the optimist and the pessimist, the difference is droll. The optimist sees the doughnut; the pessimist the hole!”   Yes I admit that I’m insanely mad over chocolates and desserts and cake. But never have been much into doughnuts. While a chocolate glazed doughnut and a coffee is a match made in heaven for most, It has  never grabbed my fancy.Perhaps a Cruller with a coffee once in away at a Krispy Kreme or  the neighbourhood Timmy’s and that was as much I would indulge in them. Just the thought of a fried dessert was good enough to put me off. However I’ve  often toyed with the idea of making some up for the family as my son, now a young adult loves doughnuts! My mum would make the fried mini ones when we were kids and sure I could borrow her recipe.But again her recipe called for the deep-fried version.Mind you we loved the ones she made for as kids. Why cant one bake them instead, is something I’ve often wondered?
