Making these doughnuts is not hard at all, but I love a challenge and wanted to make some type of fruit glaze to top the doughnuts. My first attempt started with some blueberries, milk and powdered sugar. It was looking good until I grabbed the wrong box and dumped almost a cup of cornstarch into it and it tasted like YUCK!!!
So, I moved on to trying a white chocolate strawberry ganache glaze. Now, I understand the basics of ganache and have made it many times. I went searching online for recipes for fruit ganache and pretty much came to a dead end. It seems when it comes to ganache people stick to what they know regular chocolate. I still was curious so I pureed my strawberries, dumped it into my hot cream and then poured it all over my white chocolate.
I think it came out perfect!! It started out very liquidy but after cooling down it started to thicken up. I think I will play around with it a bit more and see if I can make it even thicker, or try other fruit flavors.
The trickiest part of the whole process was making the whole in the middle. I didn't have an actual doughnut cutter, so after cutting them with my biscuit cutter I had to try and find something to poke the hole with. The dough was very sticky and made it way more complicated than necessary. Next on my kitchen gadget shopping list is this!!
