Olive Oil Doughnuts with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Remember on Monday, when I asked you guys about doughnuts vs cinnamon rolls? Which one is your favorite? Did you have your answer yet?

Today may help you out, cause, we got doughnuts! I know. I’m so unhealthy.

Doughnuts that are topped with chocolate buttercream frosting.  I know. Unhealthy.

There is some sorta healthy things about these, though. There  is only 6 doughnuts to this recipe.  So, you aren’t going to binge eat a whole dozen. (Of course, unless you double the recipe.)  Also, they do have olive oil in them. So, see?  Healthy-ish.

A few months back, I made cupcakes for SRC baked with olive oil in them. We really loved those cupcakes and since then, I’ve been looking to bake more with it. So glad I did! The olive oil gives these a great flavor and really nice, brown color.  Much like those delicious cupcakes. The creamy, chocolate buttercream makes them even better!

Have a good Friday and make some doughnuts this weekend
