Found on The Simple, Sweet Life: Peppermint Mocha Doughnuts

Photo from Claire at The Simple, Sweet Life
This past holiday season I made a new Pinterest board just for Christmas breakfast.   So far I have only a few items pinned to it, but if you are interested in checking it out, here's the link: My Christmas Breakfast Pinterest board.  

I thought it would be fun to share something from this new board with you for Christmas in July, so I went to the board and made a selection.  These Peppermint Mocha Doughnuts from Claire at The Simple, Sweet Life look absolutely amazing!

Actually, I thought for years that I wouldn't care much for peppermint mocha anything.  It just didn't sound that great to me.  But either last Christmas or the year before, I forget which, I decided to try some coffee creamer in that flavor, and now I am hooked.  I'm sure these doughnuts (which I plan to try making this year) would be absolutely delicious.  They are a baked doughnut, so lower in fat -- always a plus, in my book.  You could try a batch this summer and just leave off the peppermint -- or, serve them on July 25th for Rudolph Day!


  1. These look delicious. I love cake donuts as opposed to ones you have to deep-fry. This donut pan was a great invention.

  2. They look good... and I think peppermint is christmassy and all but I don't like the taste :(

  3. Hi ladies!

    I love my donut pans, too, Pamela!

    Luludou, you could make these and just leave the peppermint extract out of the dough (put in a teaspoon of vanilla instead) and leave off the peppermint on top. You would still have a yummy mocha donut.
