Espresso Donuts with Baileys Glaze
Hi guys! I’m sorry I’ve been MIA around here lately. It’s hectic times with trying to finish up at school this semester and a baby who’s more than a handful as he keeps growing. So I have less and less time to be present here but know that I am frequently checking in to see what you are all baking up and seeing if you have any questions about the recipes you try. Shoot me an email if you ever have a burning question.
When I need a break from all the writing that I am doing currently (dissertation writing is a monster), I try to bake something quick that a) will be a good distraction/refresher and b) a good snack for later when I am working. These espresso donuts with irish cream glaze were one of my recent adventures.
With St Patrick’s Day in just a few days, these donuts will be perfect for a morning snack! They are super rich I should warn you upfront. A decadent double chocolate donut with espresso is topped with Irish cream glaze. I used Baileys coffee creamer for the glaze; add a bit in your morning coffee and some in your donuts. Perfect way to get your Irish on.
If you are a chocolate and/or donut fan, then these espresso donuts will make you happy! Nothing beats chocolate for breakfast.
Oh, grab the recipe on Delish Dish, the Better Homes and Garden food blog. I am sharing it there with their readers as well!
That’s it for today friends! I’ll try to pop in here once or twice a week to catch up with you. I miss connecting with you so leave me some updates in the comments below when you can about your baking adventures and what you are looking forward to this Spring.

You are super mama and doing an awesome job juggling everything. These donuts look like the perfect sweet treat during your breaks 🙂
I can just imagine how busy you are — you are doing amazing things girl! LOVE these donuts — perfect for breakfast! 😉
These donuts look so pretty and hope you get a chance to take a break.
Thesis writing is THE WORST. I think you might need a few Bailey’s shots as well as a few of these donuts to get you through…in fact, I need some just THINKING about thesis writing!
These are just so lovely… I am picturing you typing away on your computer with a cup of coffee and one of these next to you. What a treat! So happy that you are finally nearing the end of this journey- it’s been a long one, hasn’t it?!
sounds so wonderful! good luck with that dissertation–i can only imagine writing that while taking care of a cute baby 🙂
Wow do these donuts look good! I’m loving that Bailey’s glaze! Wishing I had a dozen of these to go alongside my morning cup of coffee!
I’m loving these Zainab! What a great donut for St. Patrick’s Day!!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: you are wonderwoman! How you juggle it all AND pull off bakery-worthy doughnuts on top of it is beyond me.
Love the Irish coffee vibe here! I love espresso so much and these donuts look fabulous 🙂
You had me at Expresso. I’m a big coffee lover so these donuts would be perfect with a cup of coffee.
Girl! You are super women right now. Dissertation, blogging and baby – I don’t know how you do it! These donuts are calling my name! Breakfast, dessert, snack = it’s all good!
