Baked Cake Doughnuts with Chocolate Glaze

Happy Saturday!

I think I should be a little concerned that I now associate weekends with baking doughnuts. While they’re “guiltless” they do tend to lack fiber, vitamins, and minerals. But I figure that’s what lunch and dinner are for, right?

I’m so rational.

Just like last night when I practically begged for a brownie sundae. My dad questioned, “Who’s the dietitian in this family?”

Everything in moderation, dad. Everything in moderation.

These were baked last Saturday and come Monday morning, 12 of them went to work with me. 18 made – 12 leftover = 6 consumed.

6 consumed doughnuts – 1 for Mr. P = 5 doughnuts consumed by yours truly.

5 doughnuts x 106 calories = 530 calories


530 calories / 2 breakfasts = 265 calories per breakfast. :-D

Leaves plenty of calories available for a side of fruit and a tall cup of coffee with the fixins’. Like I said, guiltless. Even if this is becoming a weekend habit.

The only reason Mr. P only subtracted one from the total was because he was too impatient to wait for the doughnuts, he had to go buy the fried ones instead. His loss! My co-workers were happy campers! ;)

Question: What’s for breakfast this morning?

Be well,


  1. A 100 calorie doughnut?? You’re brilliant! :) … ps I’ve been spelling it ‘donut’ my whole life! Is that totally wrong?

  2. These look so good. I don’t even really like donuts all that much but I’m thinking I mayy need to make these. As for breakfast this morning, probobly the summer usual: cut up fruit with yogurt and homemade granola.

  3. It’s funny how you said you now associate weekends with baking doughnuts — when I first read the title of this post I though, oooh it’s Saturday, I can make these today, lol! They look so good, Nicole! Hope you’re having a great weekend!

  4. You and your donuts!! Everyone time I read one of your donut posts I make a mental note to buy a donut pan. I have a BBB gift card that is burning a hole in my pocket that needs to go towards a donut pan.

    Oh and 100 calorie donuts?!…BOOYAH!

    • Hahaha, I love it! A BBB gift card wouldn’t last a quick minute in my hands…what good self-control you have :)

  5. wOw. I feel a doughnut baking weekend coming on. These look terrific and I love the toppings.
    PS – I love how since I’ve begun a Dietetics student, people always assume every dessert I make or eat is somehow “healthy”! I think I get away with a lot (oh yeah, this hot fudge sundae is full of calcium and protein!) ;)

    • I get the same assumptions. Silly people ;) We are smart about food…we know when to splurge and how to do it ;)

  6. Looks delicious!! I have yet to make baked donuts. Must get donut pan asap :)

  7. These are begging me to make them. Why oh why are doughnuts not healthy for you? :P

  8. I just ordered a doughnut pan on amazon…should be ready to bake doughnuts by next weekend. Thanks!

  9. OH man, these seem so very wrong… but so very right. I love doughnuts, and these appear to be pretty harmless in moderation.

  10. Oh my! Who wouldn’t love doughnuts for breakfast!!! :-)

  11. HI there! I share your afinity for doughnuts, and can not wait to make these! Do you think I could swap whole wheat flour for the AP and add the corn starch. I ask bc its what I keep on hand (even for cookies…) and it would add some of that elusive fiber…
