Chocolate Dip Baked Donut

Donuts. They always reminds me of the time I worked at Tim Hortons. Wow, I ate a lot of donuts back then. I haven't eaten them (much) since, but, on a late night browsing on Amazon (which is never really a good idea. The things I have bought browsing Amazon late at night...) I bought a donut pan.

Afterwards, I thought to myself "when have I ever made a donut?" But I suppose there's a first for everything (this isn't my first time using the pan. My second since I bought. My first time, I made some Ice Cream Cake Donuts which didn't quite turn out like donuts. More like moist cake in the shape of a donut.)

It was such a sunny day, I had to make donuts. You know, in case the sunshine didn't brighten up everyone's day.

This is perfectly paired with some coffee. From Tim Hortons. Oh how I miss that place. But actually, on the Tim Hortons nostalgia, I have just won a free coffee with a free coffee in roll up the rim! (for those who don't know anything about Tim Hortons, every spring they have a roll up the rim where there is a 1 in 6 chance of winning, watch, car, etc.. I've only won coffee. So much coffee...)
