Caveman Mocha Donuts

This is the perfect Chocolate donut, baked not fried and full of coffee goodness. It is soft and fluffy with a decadent chocolate glaze over top.


Every time my husband and I take a trip to the Outer Banks in North Carolina I always come home with some kitchen goodies. At the Tangier Outlet Mall there is a quaint little kitchen store. The last time I went in there I found some cute little donut pans that were on sale. So I purchased them thinking I would use them for something. That something is now.

I love the fact that these wonderful fudgy donuts are baked and not fried. They also have a little bit of coffee in them to bring out the chocolate taste even more. Caveman Coffee sent me some free samples of their wonderful coffee along with some cocoa butter. I will certainly put the leftover stuff to very good use. Caveman coffee is hand picked and small batch roasted in New Mexico. I loved it at first sip.
