As hard as it may be to believe, I actually had some stale Glazed Doughnuts laying around the kitchen..I’m not quite sure how that happened, but I was definitely not about to toss them in the trash, as if they were forgotten and unloved..lol!
I gave them a second chance at life by turning them into something that ended up being better than the original doughnut…I Cobblerized them!
Here’s the method, so you too can use up any not-so-fresh pastries around your kitchen as well!
First, prepare the Cobbler topping:
In a medium bowl combine..
1/2 Cup of melted butter
1 1/3 Cup of flour
|Cut up doughnut bottoms and reserved tops!
?1/2 Cup of sugar
1/2 Cup of chopped nuts (whatever nut you like)
Mix and set aside!
Prepare the Doughnuts:
Slice the doughnuts in half (like a bagel)
and set the tops off to the side! Cut the bottom halves into 4 pieces…set aside (See pic)—–>
You will need:
Approx. 12 glazed doughnuts
1/2 Cup sugar
|Ready for the first 20 minutes in the oven!
?1 tbsp. cornstarch
1-16oz. bag of frozen mixed berries (defrosted)
In a large bowl, stir together the sugar and cornstarch. Gently fold in the berries and the quartered doughnut bottoms.
Place in a 9″ pie pan (see pic)—>
Bake for 20 minutes, and remove from the oven!
Arrange the full doughnut tops decoratively on top, and sprinkle the Cobbler topping all over the that.
Return to the oven and bake for approx. 20 more minutes, or until the top is slightly browned and the berries bubble a bit.
Serve hot with fresh Whipped Cream!
Now you can enjoy your “old” glazed doughnuts in a whole new way! (see pic) —->
~YAY for recycling!
*HINT* Kick it up..and make it A La Mode!
