Looking for an easy brunch recipe to make with your kids? These baked strawberry donuts are delish, and a great use for fresh strawberries!
I'm going to argue that donuts might be the perfect breakfast food. You can make them ahead of time, store them in an airtight container, and you have fun breakfast for the entire week (you're welcome in advance). From our churro donuts to our carrot cake donuts , we make donuts a LOT and I don't see this stopping anytime soon.
My trick? We make baked donuts in a donut pan. They're a whole lot lighter or easier to bake. They're a great way to use fruit, and I love that they're as easy as……pie. Literally, start to finish, most baked donuts take under 45 minutes to make, finish, and store. Plus, as we get more into cooking with kids in our house……these are easy enough for my elementary school aged student almost on her own.
Now, let's talk baking with kids and tools. For donuts? I'm telling you, a silicone donut pan will change your life. The ones we got are under $10 for a set of two (so you'll bake a dozen at a time). You'll bake them on a cookie sheet for easy baking and removal from the oven and then the easiest part? Removing them from the donut pan. Easy as can be…..strawberry donuts for the whole week of breakfasts (or let's be honest anytime of day).
