Mocha Donuts with Peppermint Glaze

There is no other flavour combination that defines winter better (at least in my opinion) than coffee, chocolate and peppermint. I made these mini donuts on christmas and they were an absolute hit! The deep chocolate and coffee flavours really stand out, while the peppermint adds a hint of sweetness. These are baked, but trust me, you really won't be able to tell!

Ingredients:
  1. 1/3 cup brown sugar
  2. 1 egg
  3. 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  4. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  5. 1/2 cup milk 
  6.  2 tsp vinegar
  7. 2 tsp of instant coffee 
  8. 1 tbsp hot water
  9. 1/2 tsp baking soda
  10. 3/4 cup flour
  11. 1/3 cup cocoa powder

 For the glaze:
  1. 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  2. 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  3. 2 tablespoons milk
  4. 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract



Method:
  1. In a  bowl, add the sugar and egg, and mix well.  Next, add the oil and vanilla, and mix well.
  2. Add the vinegar to the milk and set aside for about 5 minutes, then add it to the egg mixture.
  3. Dissolve the instant coffee in the hot water, and then add to the batter.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the baking soda, flour, and cocoa powder.
  5. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet until just mixed together.
  6. Transfer to a greased donut pan.
  7. Bake at 180 degrees for 10 minutes.  
  8.  Set aside to completely cool the donuts before glazing.
  9. For the glaze, add all of the ingredients together, and mix well.
  10. Dip donuts in glaze and enjoy!
