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.

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

Strawberry Doughnuts

Yield: 6

Ingredients

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

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 and grease doughnut pan.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!

    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!
