These baked chocolate donuts have brewed espresso in the batter and chopped espresso beans on top of the rich, chocolate glaze. You can have your morning cup of coffee and eat it too!
Today, I bring you a recipe that will get your heart racing! Almost literally. I mean, have you seen those crushed espresso beans on top? I love and hate myself all at the same time.
I’m pretty sure that I drink more caffeine on Mondays than I do any other day of the week. It is Monday, after all, aka, potentially the hardest day in the week. I figured the best way to remedy the situation is to start the day off with a ridiculous amount of chocolate and caffeine. And maybe a pancake or two (I’m a really big breakfast eater).
Waking up and smelling the coffee has never looked or tasted better.
I can pretty much get behind anything for breakfast that qualifies more as a dessert than breakfast, but is technically (and socially) acceptable for breakfast. I know. It’s the New Year and all, and lots are on a mission to rid their diet’s of excess sugar. But, I can’t give up chocolate entirely. It’s just not a thing that I can do. It’s fine. I’ll have a salad for lunch or something.
