S'more Chocolate Cake Doughnuts (dairy and egg free)

It was one of those days when I told my kids, "Let's make some doughnuts." And they came back with, "What kind?" Hmm... I had no idea.

So I used my Bao dough for yeast doughnuts. Then I decided to test a chocolate cake doughnuts without eggs, but they didn't turn out very sweet. The s'more flavor was an afterthought because I figured that the roasted marshmallow and melted chocolate would make this desert the sweet that it needed. I was right. Plus, it was super fun to have my kids roasted their own marshmallows over the stove top.

Alternatively, dipping cake doughnuts in a melted chocolate is pretty addicting. Either way, enjoy!!!
