Strawberry Shortcake Doughnut Muffins

Strawberry Shortcake Doughnut Muffins. These are like little bites of HEAVEN. A muffin that tastes like a doughnut, dunked in brown butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar for a sweet, crunchy crust. Then topped with buttercream frosting and fresh cut strawberries. Amazing.

So excited to be participating in a fun blog party today all about doughnuts!! It’s always a good day to celebrate doughnuts. :) A few weekends ago tons of fabulous food bloggers from all over met up in Austin, Texas for the big BlogHer Food conference. I think at some point while we were there, we all made our way to the Gourdough’s Gourmet Doughnut Truck. I kept seeing tweets and Instagrams about it all weekend, lol! They served up soft, fluffy, delicious doughnuts made fresh to order and covered them with the most decadent and indulgent toppings imaginable. See a few photos I took of my favorite combinations here!

Today I am teaming up with a few of the sweet food bloggers I got to meet in Austin, and we are each recreating our favorite Gourdough’s Doughnut and sharing the recipes with you so you can enjoy the deliciousness of Gourdough’s without ever leaving home.

While they definitely had some indulgently fun and decadent combinations, my favorite Gourdough’s doughnuts were the pure and simple ones, like the Miss Shortcake; a perfectly golden doughnut topped with sweet vanilla frosting and fresh strawberries. Today I am sharing my spin on this favorite: The Strawberry Shortcake Doughnut Muffin. It’s a muffin that tastes like a doughnut!

I made doughnut muffins for exactly six reasons:

  1. I wanted something that would stay fresh and still be good if you wanted to share. Fried doughnuts like the ones at Gourdough’s are really best eaten right away, fresh out of the oil. These doughnut muffins are just as fabulous even the next day.
  2. I could’ve made baked doughnuts, but I don’t have a doughnut pan. I also didn’t want you guys to have to buy any kind of special pan either! However, if you *do* have a doughnut pan, I would totally recommend trying this recipe in it. I bet it would be totally fun!
  3. These doughnut muffins are just freaking amazing. End of story. They’re like little bites of gosh darn heaven. I can’t get over how awesome they are. You need to try one as soon as humanly possible. Make them happen, friends.
  4. Did I mention they were dipped in brown butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar?
  5. They’re made in mini muffin tin, so they’re kinda like doughnut holes.
  6. They’re small so you can eat more of them. ;)

Let’s make these happen! Just a few basic ingredients are all you’ll need. Butter, baking powder, eggs, flour, milk, and sugar. Be sure you use baking powder and not baking soda. Since there’s nothing acidic like buttermilk or lemon in these muffins, there’s nothing to counteract the baking soda, so they would turn out very, very bitter if you used baking soda. Weird, huh?

Start by beating 1.5 sticks room temperature butter and 3/4 cup sugar for 3-5 minutes.

You want it to be very fluffy and lighter in color. See here? It’s almost white!

Add two eggs, one at a time, and beat until just mixed in.

Meanwhile, sift together 3 cups flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, and 1 teaspoon salt. You could also just whisk them together until they have that soft sifted texture. I won’t tell anyone.

Now these are muffins, so we’re going to make them via the Muffin Method, like any good little muffin should. :) That means alternating mixing in the wet and dry ingredients. Start by adding a fourth of the flour mixture (a little less than a cup) and stir on low speed until just combined…

Then pour in a third of the milk and stir again. Continue alternating mixing in the dry and wet ingredients, ending with the dry.

Mix until well combined and smooth, like so, but be careful not to overmix your batter or the muffins will be tough.

We’re not using liners for our muffins, so be sure to spray the pan well with cooking spray so they don’t stick. You can even flour it if you’re into that sort of thing. Mine came out okay with just a good coat of cooking spray. Scoop about 1.5 tablespoons of batter into each mini muffin tin. A medium cookie scoop works perfectly for this. Bake at 350 for 14-15 mins, until a toothpick comes out clean.

Now for the fun part!! When these babies come out of the oven, they are dunked in butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar for a delicious sugary crust. It’s pretty much the best thing ever. And since you have to melt the butter anyway, you might as well go ahead and brown it. It’s the right thing to do. If you’ve ever thought to yourself. “Butter is awesome. Butter makes everything taste better. How can I make butter taste even MORE awesome?” Brown butter is the answer. Brown butter has a deliciously rich and even more buttery flavor. It’s a nobrainer. Plus it’s really easy to do. Melt the butter over medium heat, and once it’s melted it will start to bubble. Whisk occasionally.

When the butter starts to foam, like this, start whisking constantly and whisk for 1-2 mins, until it turns brown and you see brown flecks on the bottom of the pan.

The sweet, sugary, crunchy crust, paired with the warm, soft muffin is absolute perfection. Now, like any good doughnut, these doughnut muffins are amazing just like this. You could stop here and have a perfectly delicious dessert. That’s one thing I liked about Gourdough’s — they weren’t just about the toppings. The doughnut itself was good too!

But we are going to send these doughnuts completely. over. the. top. by adding a simple vanilla buttercream frosting and fresh summer strawberries.

I found it easier to pipe the frosting onto the muffins. Spreading it tended to scrape off the crust. I had a batch of my favorite vanilla buttercream frosting (recipe below) in the freezer from the last time I made frosting and accidentally made too much. I let it come to room temperature then whipped it up again in my KitchenAid mixer to get the smooth and fluffy consistency, and it tasted just like I’d made it brand new. I will definitely be freezing my leftover frosting from now on! It was such a time saver for these muffins.

Hi Amanda!

I’m so excited to make these for my Aunt’s 50th surprise birthday party! I just have a question before I make these cute, petite, scrumptious strawberry shortcake doughnut muffins! I have no experience with piping as a method for icing, in fact I’m a little unfamiliar with baking. I’m more of a cooker apposed to a baker. Back to asking my question, what did you use for the piping bag and and what size pipe did you use? Also any tips for a first time icing piper? Haha, thank you for this yummy looking recipe, I hope my family will enjoy them!
