These beautiful doughnuts are light as air, and baked instead of fried, but still taste so indulgent. They also use a basic wet-into-dry method that I love.
I added some Form protein powder to these, but if you don't want to include it, then just add more flour in its place, plus an extra tablespoon of cacao powder.
As Valentine's Day was upon us, I gave these doughnuts a pretty white- and ruby-chocolate glaze, but a simple dark-chocolate glaze with a sprinkling of crushed toasted peanuts for added crunch are another favourite way to serve these.
You can also swap in the peanut butter for hazelnut or cashew, which are equally delicious!
