Baked Strawberry Doughnuts



Since the fall, I've been on a baked doughnut kick.  I just love them.  They are so easy to make and hit the spot for when I get the urge to have something sweet for breakfast.  I recently decided it was time to experiment with new flavors and whipped up what might be my favorite flavor yet--melt in your mouth strawberry. I hope you enjoy!


Ingredients

for the donuts

  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used skim, because that's what was in my fridge)
  • 6 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • Make sure you have a donut pan

for the glaze

  • 3 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped strawberries
  • 1/2 cup freeze dried strawberries, crushed into a powder (I put mine in a plastic baggie and used a glass to crush them)
  • 1 tbsp water

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Prep doughnut pans with Baker's Joy (I love this product because you don't have to worry about flouring your pans since it's already in the spray!!!)
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
  • In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients.
  • Combine dry and wet ingredients together, mixing until combined.  If you are using a mixer, use low setting as you don't want to over mix.
  • Slowly add strawberries to mixture.
  • Stir until combined. Again, if using a mixer, use a low setting to avoid over mixing.
  • Place batter in a ziplock bag and cut off the tip to fashion a piping bag.  (I usually put the bag in a glass and scoop the dough in)
  • Bake for 10-13 minutes until toothpick inserted into doughnut comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool on a baking rack while you prepare strawberry glaze.
  • To prepare glaze--in a mixing bowl, combine the chopped strawberries and the powdered sugar.
  • Mix until combined, macerating strawberries to add moisture to the mixture.  
  • Once this mixes down, add freeze dried strawberry powder and stir until combined.
  • Add 1 tbsp water to give mixture a glaze-like consistency.
  • Dip doughnut in glaze and place on wire rack.  Let the Doughnuts sit for 5 minutes to allow the glaze to set.
  • Enjoy!

  10. What makes the American roulette wheel completely different from the European version is reality that|the reality 메리트카지노 that} it has an extra double slot, which is situated on the reverse facet from the single zero slot. Some bets are particular to the European or French roulette, and are often placed by the croupier following the orders of the participant. The dealer usually shouts out these bets earlier than putting them for the CCTV and to keep away from any confusion.
