The Return of Donut!

Remember the toothsome tale of donut? If you didn’t read this post, here’s the gist of it: donut used to be unhealthy and full of fat and sugar, but he changed his ways and transformed into a delicious strawberry donut muffin!

Unfortunately, because his fab new form was so enticing, Donut was devoured by his gym buddies. And that was the end of Donut…

…Or was it?

Today, Donut has been reborn in an innovative incarnation no one could have predicted – a donut cheesecake!

You see, in the dessert underworld he encountered some of his old friends who had long ago been lost to gluttonous donut consumers: white-haired, old fashioned Glazed Donut, the eccentric Rainbow Sprinkle donut, and sassy little Cream Puff with a twist: the tang of Greek yogurt cheesecake now penetrated her sweet, creamy innards.

Summoning the power of deliciousness and the strength of strawberry filling, Donut and his friends chanted an ancient incantation. They were magically combined into one mighty Superdonut, a Donut Cake. In this new form they collectively resolved to return to earth and terrorize all who had once threatened them with a deadly bite.

But there’s nothing to be afraid of, really. This Strawberries ‘n’ Cream Donut Cheesecake is much healthier than your typical donut, or cheesecake, or deep-fried, sugary, fatty dessert in general. Made with whole wheat pastry flour and Truvia baking blend, it is lower in sugar and higher in fiber than traditional desserts. The yogurt cheesecake is low in fat and high in protein and calcium.

Instead of using saccharine strawberry jam for the filling, this time I used real, fresh strawberries, baked into something of a compote (you may wish to pre-cook the strawberries into a compote if you want it more of a sauce; mine ended up with a chunky, though still yummy texture.) To top it all off, the donut cake is drizzled with a generous river of Truvia glaze and sprinkled with rainbow nonpareils to help you eat your daily colors! 🙂

Don’t miss the scrumptious comeback of Donut and the gang: make this Strawberries and Cream Donut Cheesecake today!
