Every school day I set my alarm 30 minutes prior to the time I need to wake the kids. Why you might ask? Well I need this time to let the dog out and have a cup of coffee in silence. If anyone has traveled with me, they know if I don’t get the cup of  GOOD coffee, I can be a beast. Where am I going with this you might ask, I want to share my favorite coffee creamer and coffee combination as well as a decadent Triple Chocolate Coffee Cake Donuts Recipe that pairs so nicely with that morning cup of Joe.

Triple Chocolate Coffee Cake Donuts Recipe

A few years ago I made a triple chocolate coffee cake and decided I wanted to try the recipe as a donut. The doughnuts are baked and use a cake mix for easy preparation even on a busy weekend. The only unique item you need for this recipe is a donut pan.

Since this recipe starts with a chocolate cake mix and a pudding package, it is basically made for you! Well not really, you still need to add Greek yogurt, butter and chocolate chips but how much harder can it get. Triple Chocolate Coffee Cake Donuts Recipe

The batter is very dense and it easily makes 24 donuts. If you don’t need that many, bake the other half of the batter in a 8×8 square pan and freeze it for another weekend.

Once the donuts are cooled completely, you can make chocolate topping. Simply mix semisweet morsels with Simply Pure creamer and microwave for about 30 seconds or until smooth.

Any good donut deserves a nice cup of coffee. I grew up on Dunkin’ Donuts and was thrilled when I moved away from the Midwest, to find it available in grocery stores. Dunkin’ Donuts is consistently a great cup of coffee from store to shelf. It’s available in a variety of flavors and is coffee that is rich & smooth, not bitter. It’s not fancy, it’s just great coffee.

All good cups of coffee, need a good creamer. I recently tried Simply Pure  after seeing a coupon at Martin’s. Thrilled to read the label to see that Simply Pure is made with real milk, cream and sugar in three simply delicious flavors, Vanilla is my first choice.
