Strawberry Doughnuts

I have been searching for a baked doughnut pan for approximately forever. I must not have been the only one, because all of a sudden in the past 6 months or so I’ve actually been finding them. I took the opportunity to use a Sur La Table coupon to get one of those fancy pans this past weekend, and on Sunday I whipped up a batch of strawberry doughnuts.

Even though I made these on the weekend there’s no reason you couldn’t do it for a weekday breakfast (or maybe even dessert). The batter comes together in 5 minutes and the doughnuts only bake for about 8. Preposterously simple.

Strawberry Doughnut

These are a little more on the muffin side rather than dense cake doughnut, but I’m perfectly OK with that.

Strawberry Doughnuts

adapted from the Wilton doughnut pan recipe
Makes 6 doughnuts

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup raw sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup milk
1 egg
1 tbsp melted butter
1/3 cup diced strawberries
1 tbsp pure maple syrup

Preheat oven to 425 and grease doughnut pan.
In a small bowl, stir together berries and syrup. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients, then add milk, egg, and butter, stirring until just combined. Add berries. Fill each cup about 2/3 full. Bake for 7-9 minutes, until tops spring back.
Let cool 5 minutes before removing from pan, if you can. Eat as is or dip in chocolate glaze if you’re feeling naughty.

    Hahaha, my mom bought one of those pans ages ago. I discovered it in the back of the cabinet where we keep all the baking sheets and muffin tins. It was still in its packaging. I’ve yet to use it; maybe I’ll try it out since now I actually have a healthy recipe to use it with. :)

    A baked donut pan? Wow, I had never even heard of this. The strawberries lend such a pretty color to the donuts.

    Those looks so great. I probably have been eyeing the same pan but I can’t justify buying it just yet. Maybe next month :D

    These look great – the strawberry showing through in the doughnuts make them look so appetising! I would have loved a glimpse of the doughnut pan though, as I’ve never heard of one, let alone seen it!

    Gorgeous – and healthy – donuts! Can’t wait to make these.

    We’re always looking for healthy breakfast items for the kids. This definitely fits the bill. And strawberries are so gorgeous right now I want to use them in everything.

    You know, it never even occurred to me that in order to make baked donuts, you’d need a baked donut pan. Now that you mention it, though, it’s totally obvious… and of course, I totally want one. :)
    Love how the strawberries create those lovely blotches of bright red. This one is definitely going on the must-try list.

    Those doughnuts looks like a Swedish donuts that my grandma used to make. She also filled them with strawberries, or blueberries sometimes. Beautiful!

    Well congrats on making to the Daily 9!
    I have never seen anything like these pretty, fruity donuts! Nice job!

    Was it your recipe? Very nice indeed!

    I have seen a grill pan that had a donut insert, but I have not seen donut shaped baking pan. There is always something new of course. One cannot see everything there is out there.

    What company did you buy your pan from?

    I would love to know when you get a chance responding to all your emails and comments.

    Also, I would love to have you be regular contributor to my new cooking blog, “Cooking Up A Storm with Polly Motzko.”

    I would love to hear from you.

    Once again, great job! These look really scrumptious!

    I love doughnuts and these look simply divine! And they are baked – much healthier alternative! Bravo for making Top9. This goes to my “to-bake” list!
