Warm Coffee Liquor Donuts with Carmelized Creme Brulee Topping:
Doughnuts are the new cupcakes and a big trend for the season. Here is an easy way to upgrade regular old store-bought dooughnuts and take them from an afternoon snack to a fancy dessert:
6 sugar-covered doughnuts
1/2 cup of sugar
3 oz. Coffee Heering Liqueur
1. Heat the doughnuts in the oven at 250 degrees for 5 minutes.
2. Put the sugar on a plate, brush the top of the warm doughnuts with water and dip in the sugar.
3. Insert and inject the liqueur in multiple spots of the bottom of the doughnuts with a small turkey baster or cake decorating tool using about half an ounce per doughnut. You can find this Cupcake Injector Decorating Set on Amazon.
6. With a creme brulee torch, burn the sugar top of the doughnuts to a hard sugar topping. If you don’t have a creme brulee torch, you can simply put in the oven on broil for a few minutes until the sugar caramelizes.
Serve right away while warm.
Let the guests watch while you are putting on the finishing touches, their mouths will be watering and you will look like a pro in the kitchen!
