Strawberry Doughnuts

So ever since my first attempt at doughnuts I've been hooked! I love my doughnut pan and love researching fun new recipes to try with it. A few weeks ago we had a new addition to our family, a beautiful baby girl- my first niece, and I am simply smitten with her. When she was born I wanted to bring a few items over to my sister-in-law and brother-in-law to ease some of the burden of being home with a newborn. I decided to make them some form of breakfast, and decided to go with these doughnuts. They are a tad bit healthier than traditional doughnuts as in there is no glaze or icing, and they are a bit more muffin-like than a doughnut. I also liked that there was some fruit in them... because clearly fruit makes them healthy, right?! RIGHT?! These aren't your typical overly sweet doughnut, but they are still quite tasty. John and I were fans and I hope the new mommy and daddy were too!

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup 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.


  1. These look delicious! I can't wait to make these (and your other doughnuts) - I just need a doughnut pan first! Where did you get your pan from?

  2. I got it at Sur La Table... but they sell them on amazon

  3. Okay I'm convinced I need a doughnut pan! These look great

  4. Yes, anything with fruit added in always makes me feel that it's "healthier." Like the pancakes I made this morning, full of blueberries. Haha. I gotta buy a doughnut pan to try out some of your recipes!

    Oh, and, thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. I hope you do try the lemon risotto- let me know if you like it. :)

  5. Those look amazing! *runs off to buy a doughnut pan*

  6. My husband bought me a scone pan for Valentine's Day. Looks like I'll be adding a doughnut pan soon!

  7. I'm trying to figure out how to make these without investing in a donut pan... I figure I can cut them with a biscuit cutter, but wonder how it would affect the cooking time... any ideas?

  8. CRS- I think you need a doughnut pan :(

    The dough is very wet and not firm at all, you couldn't cut it with a biscuit cutter. It's too fluid.

  9. I just ordered my doughnut pan from Amazon - so excited!!

  10. Caitlin- I believe it was 12... or very close to 12.
