Baked Chocolate Pumpkin Donuts that are topped with a delicious chocolate ganache topping.
In our family we love donuts, whether they are for breakfast or dessert, they are always a big hit. I love any kind of donut with chocolate on top. Since it is fall, I decided to make a pumpkin donut. I really like cake donuts, so I decided to make a pumpkin cake donut and of course I had to top it with chocolate. I like baked donuts because at least I feel like I am eating a little bit healthier.
These Baked Chocolate Pumpkin Donuts are fantastic. Let me tell you, the chocolate ganache is heavenly. It is a great topping for the donuts. I put it when the donuts were still a little warm, which made for a thinner more glaze like topping. If you wait and let the ganache dry a little you can get a thicker chocolate topping. The ganache was so good that I couldn’t stop eating the extra ganache . My husband was doing dishes and asked if I was done with the ganache. I promptly said no, even though all my donuts were dipped, and continued to eat the ganache with a spoon. Healthy, no, but delicious, yes.
The donuts have great pumpkin flavor, but they are not overwhelming. The chocolate chips in the donut and the chocolate ganache on top help to mellow out the pumpkin flavor and they go great with the chocolate. These donuts are great with coffee for breakfast or they are great for dessert, either way they are delicious and have great fall flavor. These donuts are great for a taste of chocolate pumpkin flavor.
