Chocolate Fudge Donut

Chocolate Fudge Rum Donuts with Cherry Rum Glaze and Chocolate Fudge Icing

The Chocolate Goddess has issued a proclamation:

You are hereby permitted to eat as many of these chocolate fudge rum donuts as you want because they are baked not fried, but more importantly because they are divinely delicious.  The Goddess has further decreed that they are made for adults only -

Yes, some desserts are just NOT for kids. 

These chocolate donuts are caressed by a buttery rum glaze that is kissed with cherry preserves to lock in the moist fudge cake. Their fudgey goodness is enhanced further by a thick layer of shiny chocolate fudge glaze.

Need any further convincing that baking these will give you a glorious excuse to indulge?

Happy Baking!


Always stay in touch with your inner goddess!
