Ingredients

Doughnut:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Red food coloring (optional)

Strawberry Cream Filling:

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup strawberry puree (fresh strawberries blended until smooth)

For Decoration:

  • Red glossy icing
  • Edible gold leaf
  • White sugar pearls

Instructions

Doughnuts:

  1. Preheat Oven and Prepare Pan: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a heart-shaped doughnut pan.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg.
  3. Add Wet Ingredients: Stir in melted butter, milk, and egg until just combined. Add a few drops of red food coloring for a Valentine’s red hue, if desired.
  4. Fill Doughnut Pan: Spoon the batter into the doughnut pan, filling each one about halfway.
  5. Bake: Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the doughnuts spring back when touched. Let them cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Strawberry Cream Filling:

  1. Whip Cream: In a medium bowl, whip the heavy cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.
  2. Add Strawberry Puree: Gently fold in the strawberry puree.
  3. Fill Doughnuts: Once the doughnuts are cool, use a piping bag to inject each doughnut with the strawberry cream filling.

Decoration:

  1. Ice the Doughnuts: Once filled, dip the top of each doughnut in the red glossy icing.
  2. Add Gold Leaf and Pearls: Decorate with edible gold leaf and white sugar pearls.
  3. Final Touch: For a special Valentine’s touch, create a small heart-shaped cutout on the top of each doughnut to reveal the strawberry cream filling.

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day with these special heart-shaped doughnuts! They’re perfect for sharing with your loved ones.
