Oreo Chocolate Doughnut



I would like to dedicate this to Quinn of Quinn Baking Diary .I remembered sharing about this baking cookbook I bought sometime back and she left me a comment that I just have to oblige :))

Quinn said..."Elin, make the dougnuts shown in the book cover!!! Look so delicious, I want the recipe!!!! "

How could I resist after reading her comment.....So Quinn this is for you :))

I know I have to try it out before I share out the recipe. * you know, at times recipes in cookbook may not turn out at all *
I took the opportunity to try it out last night and gosh it was one of the most beautiful and tasty doughnut I have eaten. The texture of the doughnut is soft and fluffy. And the first thing that Piggy Josh said when he saw this was  " Mom , this look like those doughnut from Krispy Kreme ! , wait, let me take a shot of it before we eat them "    Wow...my head swelled for a moment.  So no one get to eat till the two home  " food paparazzi " had their session with these beauties :))  Now you know why I love having my Piggies with me. My bakes are most welcome by them :p
