She first made a Cherry Angel Food Cake and then made a Key Lime Angel Food Cake. Angel Food Cake is one of my favorites and my grandma always made me one for my birthday. Although these weren't technically made for my birthday ~ I could pretend can't I.
So anyways, I decided not to make a cake and went for doughnuts instead. I had bought a doughnut pan a while back when I won a gift card from Joann Fabric through a wonderful friend Marilyn from 4 You With Love . Yes, I bought baking supplies from there... I did buy some fabrics and other crafts too but I was excited to get the doughnut pan.
I had never made baked doughnuts as I had always fried them so I had to find a recipe and headed to my favorite on-line place for recipes and found a wonderful that I could use called Baked Doughnuts. We had them for breakfast with strawberry and Whipped Cream and they were delicious.
Baked Doughnuts with Strawberries and Cream
adapted from Baked Doughnuts
I made only half a recipe and was able to get 9 doughnuts out of the dough and I probably could have stretched it to 12 and still had decent sized doughnuts.
Ingredients: Printable Recipe
1/2 cup Zulka Morena Pure Cane Sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp anise
1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup almond milk
2 tsp honey
1/4 cup melted butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In bowl add dry ingredients (first 8 ingredients) and set aside.
Melt butter and let cool, once cool mix in milk, egg and honey.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well.
Spoon dough into doughnut pan about 3/4 full.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 -14 minutes until brown.
Once baked let cool for about 5 minutes in pan and then cool the rest of the way on cooling rack.
Enjoy these doughnuts plain or you can cut them in half and add whipped cream (either homemade or bought) and strawberries. We also sprinkled a little anise seed on the whip cream. Enjoy them for breakfast or anytime during the day.
My next try I am going to even try and decrease more of the fat content. This one I decreased it by using Almond Milk instead of Buttermilk in the original recipe. I also want to get rid of or decrease the butter, that is my goal for the next batch.
