Terrys Chocolate Orange Baked Donuts

Hey everyone! My first baked donut recipe! We all know I’m obsessed with chocolate orange so of course it was the first recipe I would pick. They are so so simple and so much fun to make. The baked donut is so rich and zesty but still so light at the same time. Topped with a delicious chocolate orange glaze, its just perfection!

I got my donut tray on Sugar sisters, it cost under 10 euro and I am so happy I bought it. Heres the link – https://sugarsisters.ie/collections/cake-tins/products/donut-tin-6-cavity

If you don’t want to buy a donut tray you can make your own one using a muffin tray and tinfoil. Simply just google it and you will find so many tutorials on how to make them.
