Brioche baked doughnuts! What a brilliant idea. We thought we would try to make a doughnut that was a bit healthier than the normal doughnut deep dried in oil. We love to make brioche and have made cinnamon rolls with the dough before. So, we thought, why not try making baked brioche donuts!?!?
By the picture you can tell they came out GREAT! Simply cut out the doughnuts after the first rise, cover and let double in size again. We put a roll of foil in the middle to keep the hole open. Bake at 350F for 10 minutes and cover with your favorite topping/glaze while still warm.
These doughnuts have the texture of a danish and are not sweet at all.
I had mine with my morning coffee - what a treat!
