Baked Chocolate Coconut Donuts


Its donut day!!!!!  My daughter is as obsessed with the baked donuts as I am and is helping decide what flavors to make next.  So at her request I made Chocolate Coconut donuts.



With both cocoa and baking chocolate the donuts are delectably chocolate.  The coconut adds both texture and flavor to the donuts.  Icing seemed unnecessary so the donuts are quickly ready to eat.  The batter is really thick and is easier to spoon than pipe into the pans.
