The breakfast and/or buffalo chicken theme continues with today’s post — more baked doughnuts! People, I’m telling you…doughnut pan. Best $6.99 I’ve spent in a LONG time.
I think I need a second doughnut pan, even. Thank goodness I only have two mouths to feed…
Now, I can’t say these are my favorite doughnut, but I think that’s because they’re more of a muffin in doughnut form. Nothing wrong with that, though. 😀 Just don’t plan to have a comparison to Dunkin Donuts, that’s all I’m saying.
Of course you could always add a glaze to unhealthify (not a word, go with it) and jazz things up. More sugar = jazz. Mmmm…love jazz.
Or keep ’em clean. Whole wheat, healthy, and sinless. I mean 87 calories and 1.3 grams of fat for a doughnut? It’s hard to pass up.
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup skim milk
1/4 cup egg substitute
1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1/3 cup diced strawberries
1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
Preheat oven to 425 F and spray a doughnut pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small bowl, stir together strawberries and syrup. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients. In a small bowl, mix milk, egg, and butter, stirring until just combined. Combine wet ingredients into dry and add berries.
Fill each doughnuts well about 2/3 full. Bake for 7-9 minutes, until tops spring back. Yield: 10 doughnuts.

Result: Good, but probably not our favorite. These are best when fresh & warm and don’t do as well as leftovers like some of the other doughnut recipes I’ve tried. I think using half whole wheat and half all-purpose or a whole wheat pastry flour would help to lighten the density of the doughnut — they have that very whole wheat feel and taste. I am going to play with this recipe some and see if I can’t come up with a fluffier, less dense strawberry doughnut!
It sounds like a lot of you will be enjoying protein pancakes this weekend! I hope you like them as much as I do!
Last night was spent
crying over Illinois’ loss in the Big Ten Quarterfinals watching basketball and making Biz’s New York-Style Bagels – so good! And a much needed beer after another long week. I am very much so looking forward to day light savings! Bring on the SUN!
Question: Any fun weekend plans?
Make it a good one,
