So last week was National Donut Day and while I was well prepared with a mouthwateringly delicious recipe, life got in the way of actually posting it! Story of my life! So here it is a few days later…
In January my family and I made a list of things that we wanted to accomplish this year. While traveling and losing weight were on the top of the list, making perfect yeast donuts and authentic Indian food made its way onto the list too. Surprisingly our list of about 30 goals is already halfway completed, and I successfully checked off my desire to create perfect donuts. Although I think I may have created a homemade donut monster in my husband as he now requests them weekly!
These donuts are the perfect combination of sweet and fruity custardiness (not sure if that is an actual word). The fried dough is light and airy and basically turns into a sugary crust once filled. The custard is swirled with fresh, sun kissed strawberries, that is good enough to eat with a spoon.
This recipe is definitely time consuming, but like most recipes that require a lot of steps, it is sooooo worth it! Since summer is upon us and I am sure, like me, you have kids that proclaim their “boredness” (again probably not a real word) within 5 minutes of waking up, take a day and make these donuts with them. Kids love kneading the dough, cutting the strawberries, mixing the custard, and finally eating the delicious donuts that they created! Enjoy and Happy Belated National Donut Day!
