Christmas Wreath Doughnuts

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here.

Our tree will be going up this weekend, letters to Santa are being scribed, and even the doughnuts are a little more festive.

I made these Christmas Wreath Doughnuts by baking a batch of chocolate cake in a doughnut pan, then decorating them with Wilton's leaf tip #352, and piping the berries and ribbons on with a #4 tip. Keep your icing soft, because you'll need your hands to still work when it comes to eating one when you're done decorating.

How's your holiday planning coming along?

Baked Chocolate Doughnuts

1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp melted butter or oil (I usually use oil)
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup lukewarm water

Preheat oven to 375F.

Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl, and stir until well mixed.

Make 3 wells in the mixture, filling the first with melted butter/oil, the second with vinegar, and the third with vanilla

Pour water over mixture and mix thoroughly with a fork. Spoon batter into a greased doughnut pan, and bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes before removing!
