Ohh it is a good morning at Chez CateyLou. A great morning in fact. And that is because I have the best donuts I have made thus far to share with you. That’s right, the best. And I have made a lot of donuts since I bought my little pan back in the fall. The name says it all – chocolate donuts with peanut butter frosting.

If you are a chocolate peanut butter lover, then you are going to agree that these donuts are insanely delicious! And also that they really are dessert and not breakfast. But anything goes on Saturday mornings in our house.

Guinness Stout Chocolate Donuts #KissMeImIrish

Guinness Stout beer in the batter and the icing really makes the chocolate flavor shine in these baked donuts. Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day breakfast!
Guinness Stout Chocolate Donuts | chezcateylou.com Who wants Guinness for breakfast?! Ok I know, it sounds kind of weird. And I felt strange cracking open a beer at 8am. But let me tell you – it tastes amazing in these donuts! You can’t really taste beer, it just brings out the chocolate flavor. And, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s day than with Guinness and sprinkles.

When my friend Connie over at URBAN BAKES invited me to her #KissMeImIrish St. Patrick’s Day blog party, I was so in! 12 of us made fun St. Patrick’s Day treats for you – and they all include alcohol! That was actually a total coincidence – great minds think alike.  Links to all the delicious recipes are at the bottom of the post, so make sure to check them out.

It is time for another Mystery Dish post! This month, Allie from Baking a Moment  picked a fun list of celebratory ingredients for us. They were Champagne, Strawberries, Oranges, Beets, Filet Mignon, Lobster, Cream, Chocolate, Rosewater, and Rice.  Since champagne, lobster, and filet mignon aren’t in my usual cooking repertoire, I’m not really sure what rosewater is, and I am not a fan of beets, I decided to go with what I know and love – chocolate and strawberries! It doesn’t get much better than that.  Especially when combined in a baked donut – chocolate donuts with strawberry cream cheese icing to be exact!
