Strawberry Donuts


Happy Monday! How was your Mother’s Day?

Today’s recipe for Fresh Strawberry Buttermilk Donuts would have been perfect for Mother’s Day, too bad I didn’t get to post it earlier.

Have I ever told you how much I love strawberries? (Who doesn’t?) This Strawberry Jello-O Mold No-Bake Bundt Cake is one of the most popular recipes on my blog.

And I like to use strawberries in so many different recipes like these Fresh Strawberry Buttermilk Donuts.

I also recommend that you try this Strawberry sorbet and Strawberry Nectarine Mojito, if you happen to have some fresh strawberries on hand.

The use of buttermilk made them light and fluffy. I used half white flour and half whole wheat, to add some extra fiber.


Strawberry Donuts


These donuts are not too sweet, which is the perfect excuse to top them with a sweet strawberry glaze.

I’ve been obsessed with baked donuts lately! The dough takes minimal time to prepare and bake. They are a lot lighter and healthier than fried donuts.

I used fresh strawberries in the recipe, but frozen (unthawed) could be substituted.

Try these if you like donuts, strawberries and the color pink!
