If only Homer Simpson had eaten these whilst he was on shift….
When I want something, I pretty much want it right away so while it seemed like a good idea to order it, I then realised I had to wait a day before I arrived….. Bugger it.
But when it did, I got straight to baking and the donuts turned out AWESOME, especially with THIS STUFF:
I used to use white, granulated sweeteners which never really turned out the same in a lot of baking recipes but this stuff both looks, tastes AND bakes like brown sugar but without the calories.
I iced the donuts with a simple protein and almond milk icing (you can add greek yogurt for a thicker consistency) alongside some dried fruit and nuts for a bit of texture and to add some interest for the photo!
Note: I am fully aware I’m using the American spelling of “Donut”, I just don’t think “Proughnut” works too well!
