Strawberry Glazed Doughnuts

So, I’ve been seeing doughnut recipes on Pinterest for awhile now, and I’ve always passed them up because I didn’t have doughnut pans. Recently, I said fuck it and ordered some doughnut pans off of Amazon, and said lets make some doughnuts. Plus these are baked so their healthy(ish/er)

The first step with these guys is making a puree out of strawberries and strawberry jam. As we all know, I don’t own anything to do this. (one day….). Turns out you can make a puree with a hand mixer, a vegetable cutter, and some patience. So. I was pretty proud of myself for that.

Making the dough was easy enough. When combining the ingredients, you don’t want it too dry or too runny. That was the tricky part. I stopped adding the puree, worried it would be too much and there’s no going back. Ultimately, I could have added a bit more, but they still turned out pretty good.

The recipe then recommends piping the batter into the pan. But it was batter instead of frosting, so it was really difficult to pipe. So I just spooned it in and wiped off the center part. I assumed the dough would rise, so I only filled the molds about 3/4 full. I definitely could have filled them all the way to the top. But that’s something to know for next time!

The glaze part of the recipe makes way too much, I would half it. Or double the amount of doughnuts. I got 12 out of this recipe.

I had a movie night last night and people loved them! So I’ll definitely be making these again.
