I just love this time of the year, Christmas is almost here. I’m a baking and cooking fool and love to share some of my German recipes with my family and friends and create some combinations along the way. This time I have a Lebkuchen Brownie Doughnut treat for your.
My kids kept begging me for Brownies the other day, one of their favorite, however I wanted Lebkuchen, a German favorite during the holidays. So my first thought was why not combine the two, I bet it would be amazing. After all, people combine them in coffee, desserts and all sort of stuff.
While I was at BJ’s Wholesale Club shopping the other day I picked up a few of the spices that I was out along with a package of brownie mix. You could make your own but the price couldn’t be beat and I need all the help I can, so a brownie mix it is. I also made the Lebkuchen spice myself, it’s really easy. BJ’s Wholesale Club had almost all the spices I needed, too. Loved their fresh produce and meat section, be sure to pick up all your party food there, too.
Wasn’t this easy? Don’t my doughnuts look amazing? I’m in awwww… the smell is to die for and the flavor out of this world… WOW! My kids loved the combination of their favorite treat with my favorite flavor and all dished up in my Doughnut Pan. What a great dessert combination we have created.
I love to add icing to my doughnuts, however, you don’t have to top them at all or use whatever your favorite topping is, in this case I just added some powder sugar and egg whites, beat them till stiff and added them to be baked… Voila, now you have an entire new flavor explosion. A must try!! The topping is a crunchy, sweet delight that will have everyone raving about these delicious Lebkuchen Doughnuts.
While you are at BJ’s Wholesale Club shopping, you can pick up all your items needed from Oil to eggs and even the powdered sugar, the seasoning and spices and anything else you may need. We even did a little Christmas shopping for the kids and stocked our freezer and pantry for Christmas meals. All one stop shop, and I’m done and everything was very affordable.
Don’t have a BJ’s Wholesale Club membership? No worries, they currently have a 90 FREE Membership coupon, print it and you are ready to go. We shop there at least once a month and it’s always a lot of fun, cool products and almost like a family tradition.
What is your favorite holiday flavor? Something that will remind you of Christmas as a child? Would love to hear all about it, leave me a comment below.
