Two of these with a cup of coffee–easiest way to make any police officer happy.

INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons espresso powder
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups flour
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup coffee

Topping:
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons espresso powder

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Lightly grease two standard doughnut pans.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat together the butter, vegetable oil, espresso powder and sugars until smooth.

Add the eggs, beating to combine.

Stir in the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and vanilla.

Stir the flour into the butter mixture alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour and making sure everything is thoroughly combined. The batter will be fairly thick; when you draw your spatula through the batter, it will leave a furrow.

Spoon the batter into the lightly greased doughnut pans, filling the wells to about 1/4″ shy of the rim.

Bake the doughnuts for 10 minutes. Remove them from the oven, and wait 5 to 7 minutes before turning them out of the pans onto a rack.

Topping:

Add the powdered and espresso powder to a plastic bag and shake.  Drop in one warm doughnut at a time and coat.
