Greek Yogurt Baked Doughnut Parfaits with Fresh Berries
For the doughnuts:
1 1/2 cups cake flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 egg, whisked
3 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted, cooled slightly)
1/4 cup whole milk
2/3 cups plain Greek yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
For the garnishes:
3 cups plain Greek yogurt
Fresh strawberries sliced in-half, garnish
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large bowl, combine cake flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, add the egg, whole milk, Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, and melted butter. Whisk until combined. Next, in the thirds, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until well incorporated.
- Spray a doughnut pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon the batter into each doughnut hole, filling about 3/4 of the way up. Place the pan into the oven and bake for about 7 to 9 minutes. Remove from oven and place baked doughnuts onto a wire rack to cool. Repeat process with remaining six doughnuts.
- Once all the doughnuts have cooled, take a parfait glass. Preferably one that will allow for a whole baked doughnut to fit inside the glass. Place one baked doughnut into the bottom of a parfait. Next, add about 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt on top followed by a mixture of berries. Add another baked doughnut and another 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt on top followed by more berries and a drizzle of honey. Repeat process until all parfait glasses have been filled. Serve immediately.
