Loaded Donuts!

               This has to be one of THE BEST things I have EVER eaten ! WOW, I tried these this morning after taking the donuts to work yesterday & got a lot of RAVE reviews! So I thought I would try them for myself. WHOOOO HOOO so happy that I did ! I love cinnamon buns with icing but I think I LOVE THESE MORE!

2 Cups Flour
1/3 Cup Sugar
3/4 TSP Baking Soda   
1/2 Cup Buttermilk   
1/4 TSP Salt
1 Beaten Egg
4 TBS Melted Butter
1 TSP Vanilla
1 Cup Plain Low-Fat Yogurt
1 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips ( I used Semi Sweet)
1/2 Cup Cinnamon Chips
1/4 Cup Brickle Bits
Stir the flour, sugar & salt together, add Baking Soda to the buttermilk & stir. Add all the wet to the dry & whisk together. Prepare a 6 well donut pan with cooking spray coating it liberally. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

make the crumbs:
1&1/2 Cups Flour
Dash of Salt
2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 TSP Cinnamon
2 TBS Shortening
Mix all dry ingredients together, cut in shortening until you have fine crumbs. Spread these evenly between the 6 wells of you donut pan. IF you do not have a donut pan I really suggest you get one I am having SO MUCH FUN WITH MINE !!! But you could use a large 6 well cupcake pan & pass these off as individual cakes & you could do that with all my baked donuts EXCEPT the raised glazed recipe I never tried it with that one.
Now spread the batter evenly between the 6 donut wells spreading out over the crumbs.  IF you do not want crumbs you could just skip that part of the recipe & leave the crumbs out of your recipe!
Now bake between 20 to 25 minutes until high puffy & spring back to the touch. Let cool in the pan 3 minutes & then dump them out.

As they cool a bit make the following glaze:
4 TBS Melted Butter
3 Cups Powdered Sugar
Dash of Salt
1 TSP Vanilla
Enough Milk to get a thick soft glaze ( about 4 TBS)
Stir all except the milk together. Now add the milk a little at a time until you get a thick soft glaze! Drizzle in thick dollops over the top of the slightly warm donuts ! Let the donuts cool another 10 minutes or so & serve ! SUCH A GREAT TREAT !
