Chocolate Glazed Donuts

I've had a chocolate craving for several days that I haven't been able to kick.   I kept going back to this recipe for Chocolate Glazed Donuts over and over again on Pinterest.   Finally this morning I broke out the donut pans.   I doubled the recipe, did half as regular donuts and the other half as mini donuts.    Absolutely no other changes to the recipe.     I love the way that the coffee in the glaze just enhances the chocolate flavor without tasting like coffee.    My chocolate craving is now satisified!  Lots of baked donut recipes turn out to be just donut shaped muffins.  Not these, they are dead on- the texture, the glaze, everything.  Thank you to Cat Davis at Food Family and Finds for sharing this great recipe  :)
