Baked Strawberry Doughnuts

Okay guys. If you love strawberries, this recipe is a must-make. Normally I cringe when I see “baked” before “doughnuts”, but if you take them for what they are I’ve found that I quite enjoy baked doughnuts. In my mind, they won’t ever be as good as an old fashioned fried doughnut. Period. BUT, they are… Continue reading Baked Strawberry Doughnuts
