Homemade Strawberry Dounuts

Look at all this snow, yes that is an imprint of the door
For Christmas I got a mini doughnut pan and have been dying to use it. With the blizzard that recently hit it gave me some time to try a recipe from Pinterest I have never made doughnuts before and being forced by the Governor to stay home gave me a great excuse  to try it, we had all the ingredients so what they hay.

The recipe is really easy; in the future I need to remember to follow the amount to go into the pan. Most of my doughnuts don't look like donuts, they are a little bigger. I also cut the recipe in half since Kristin and I don't need as many sweets in the house, I am of course trying to be a little healthier.
Ohh Sweet strawberries and doughie goodness
