Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Glazed Donuts

I have a serious question for you…..
 
Is it Doughnut or Donut? I just don’t know. I have seen it spelled both ways and am now utterly confused! Your thoughts and insights would be most welcome, as I plan on adding quite a few doughnut/donut recipes to my repertoire. Thanks!
 
I awoke this morning and immediately went into the kitchen to make a surprise breakfast for GF Guy. I combined 2 of his favorite things, peanut butter and chocolate, to make a much healthier baked donut recipe. I think they were successful because he ate 3!

* If you are not cooking at a high altitude, reduce your oven temperature to 325 degrees and eliminate 1/4 cup almond milk.
