When I was a kid, my parents once let me put frosting on pancakes. I think it was a special occasion, with frosting left over from someone’s birthday cake, and it was definitely a one-time thing. But after that breakfast, I was ruined. Nothing else could ever compare.
These chocolate doughnuts with cherry cheesecake glaze are gluten free, grain free, and baked instead of fried, but you won’t feel like you’re missing out! They’re the perfect treat for any occasion.
It’s Friday! Paleo chocolate doughnuts with cherry cheesecake glaze, anyone?
I, for one, am super pumped about the color of this all-natural magenta glaze. It’s all about eating the rainbow, and aside from red cabbage, those purple hues can be kind of hard to find!
You may be surprised that this vibrant shade is all thanks to a mere handful of SIX frozen cherries (and, full disclosure, a tiiiiny bit of post-processing in Lightroom).
When I came up with the idea of a cherry cheesecake glaze for doughnuts, I was excited for it be pink. I was really surprised, though, when I ended up with this lovely shade of fuschia! The color may depend on the kind of cherries you use–I always buy frozen dark sweet cherries at Whole Foods (even though they’re called sweet cherries, there’s no sugar added) because I love to put them in smoothies, but my new favorite use for them is this delicious glaze.
