Doughnut Strawberry Shortcakes

Yum

 I was reading Everyday with Rachael Ray last summer when I came across this marvelous idea to use cake style doughnuts as the base for a strawberry shortcake. Of course it was towards the end of summer so I "bookmarked" the idea in my head until  summery weather and strawberries were in season.  Now that spring is here, I had to showcase this wonderful treat.  My kids went crazy over this idea.  I mean a doughnut is pretty darn tempting to begin with.. but put some whipped cream and strawberries with it and you have a treat and a half.   I have a feeling we will be eating a lot of shortcake this summer. 

 I even made them with chocolate doughnuts.....my kids loved both.

 Ingredients:
Cake style doughnuts (glazed, chocolate etc...)
fresh strawberries sliced
whipped cream (lightly sweetened) - I used COOL Whip.

Directions:
Get all ingredients prepped.  Slice doughnut through the center and top with some whipped cream and sliced strawberries.  Repeat on top.  Enjoy.

  2. Genius idea!! These look great. The strawberries around here are going to be super late but they are coming in strong at the store. I will definitely be trying this out.
