Baked Chocolate Raspberry Donuts with Powdered Sugar

Rest assured friends that, while contrary to what the last two posts might have you believe, this is not donut week over here on the blog.  However, while Gourdough’s are a must try for anyone who finds themselves in Austin, these are of the much lighter, healthier variety.  They’re also a super sweet way to say good morning to the ones you love, whether it’s next Tuesday (Valentine’s Day) or any ol’ day of the week.  Donuts are never a bad idea and these baked chocolate raspberry donuts are a really, really …
