It’s really amazing how life can get crazy, and before you know it 2 months have gone by without a single post. With the end of summer school & the beginning of the school year at work time was spread thin and the blog unfortunately became a lower priority. But now that things are settling down and routine is in place I want to get back to it. So this week I’m bringing you a special treat I made for my book club ladies a few months ago!
I love beer and I love peanut butter, and I decided to combine them into all my dessert dreams.
I didn’t have to look far on the internet for this fantastic stout doughnut recipe from Bakers Royal.
I decided to use Ninkasi Vanilla Oatis Oatmeal Stout and it ended up being the perfect beer for these doughnuts. I love baking with beer because the desserts are always less sweet which is always a nice change.
Then I made a simple peanut butter glaze and topped the doughnuts with chopped peanut butter cups.
Everyone devoured these doughnuts at my book club (including our trusty spouses/partners who drive us to and from so we can get tipsy).
What delicious things have you been making lately?
Peanut Butter Glaze (yields approximately 2 cups)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (room temperature)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
Combine the powdered sugar and peanut butter into a stand mixer. Add in the vanilla extract and almond milk. Adjust thickness by adding more milk or powdered sugar.
