Deliver Ingredients


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. 

Praline Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Praline Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
