Donuts… Who doesn’t like them? They are delicious, easy to prepare and you may eat them basically anytime of the day! You can eat them while working etc… There are so many different recipes for doughnuts but one of my favorites is chocolate donuts!
For this recipe (~30 donuts) you will need:
- 1 fresh egg
- 3 ½ cups of flour
- 1 cup of sugar
- 5-7 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup mashed potatoes
- 75-100g of bitter chocolate
- 2/3 cup semi-skimmed milk
- fat for deep frying
Beat egg until they become homogeneous and light and add the sugar and continue beating. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie (hot water bath) and add it to the sugar eggs mixture. Add the mashed potatoes and the milk.
Add baking powder and salt to the flour and bake till. Wrap the dough in plastic and cool it in the fridge for 2 hours. Then roll it out on a floured surface. Cut with floured doughnut cutter. Fry, turning each donut once, in deep fat at about 350° until the donuts become golden colored. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
You may want to dip it in melted chocolate or even some honey.
That’s it! I hope you will enjoy it!

As I am a huge fan of coffee and of food in general I decided to start blogging about some recipes that can really be called as geeky recipes. Everyone knows that most of the Graphic / Web designers/ developers are fond of caffeine that keeps them awake during the cold long nights while they are brainstorming, cogitating, designing, drawing, coding, programming, photoshoping, or just stuck out in front of a blank screen searching for inspiration!
I’ll try to share with you my love for the tasty coffee recipes that I come up with or the ones I’ve learned to prepare!
The recipe I am going to blog about today is one among many frozen coffee recipes. I like frozen coffee or café glace even in the winter, that cold sensation travelling down my mouth and esophagus energize me with a boost of stamina! Let alone the taste, the smoothness and… Of course, the caffeine! I like to call this one Vanilla café frappé..
So you are going to need:
– 1 liter of hot strong black nicely roasted coffee
– 4-6 table spoons of Sugar
– 1/8 liter light milk cream (10%)
– 1/4 liter of vanilla cream
– 6-8 ice cubes
Pour the hot coffee in a bowl add the sugar, stir it up and let it cool down. Then transfer it to the blender, add the milk and vanilla creams and mix it till it is homogeneous. Add the ice cubes and mix again with short pulses at first. Once the Ice cubes are crushed we’re done!
Pour in a pitcher and put it in the fridge for an hour or so and don’t forget to stir it up from time to time.
After an hour it is ready! Pour some in your favorite mug/ glass add 3 or 4 ice cubes and drink!
This will be enough for a full day (3 to 4 glasses)…
I hope you will enjoy it !
