Strawberry Shortcake Doughnuts are a great twist on traditional strawberry shortcake. These baked doughnuts are filled with whipped cream and strawberries.
Strawberries are one of my family’s favorite types of fruit. We always look forward to strawberry season and going strawberry picking every year. Of course, we always bring home a huge container of strawberries. I decided to use our freshly picked strawberries to make Strawberry Shortcake Doughnuts.
Strawberry Shortcake Doughnuts are a great twist on traditional strawberry shortcake. After baking the doughnuts, they get sliced in half and filled with whipped cream and strawberries. If your child is a fan of the Strawberry Shortcake cartoon, you can color the whipped cream pink and top with a themed DecoPac cupcake ring. These Strawberry Shortcake Doughnuts are a delicious way to enjoy strawberries for breakfast and dessert.
