Praline Doughnuts

Praline Doughnuts

Nutty clusters atop a chocolate glazed cake doughnut, inspired by Just a Taste.


For the doughnuts

  • 1 1/4 Cup cake flour
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1/2 Cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 Teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 Teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

For the glaze

  • 1 1/2 Cup heavy cream
  • 1 package of milk chocolate chips
  • 6 finely chopped Aunt Sally's Pralines


For the doughnuts

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and spray the mini-doughnut pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl combine  the flour, both sugars, baking powder and salt. Whisk in the heavy cream, almond, eggs and melted butter until combined.

Fill each pan cavity approximately 1/3 full (about 1/2 tbsp per cavity).

Bake the doughnuts for 4 to 6 minutes. Insert a toothpick to determine if fully baked.

Let the doughnuts cool in the pan for 5 minutes then transfer them to a cooling area.

For the glaze

Put chocolate chips in a heat-proof bowl and set aside.

Heat heavy cream in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, frequently stirring until it is simmering.

Pour heated cream over chips and allow them to stand for 3-5  minutes

Begin stirring until smooth and allow to cool to room temperature.

Coat the doughnuts in the glaze and generously sprinkle with chopped pralines.
