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.
The use of buttermilk made them light and fluffy. I used half white flour and half whole wheat, to add some extra fiber.
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!
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
- 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup fresh strawberries , diced
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup fresh strawberries , diced
- 1-2 tbsp warm water , if needed to thin the glaze
- Preheat oven to 425 F. Spray a donut pan with cooking spray.
- In a bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir to combine.
- In a separate bowl whisk together buttermilk, eggs, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until incorporated. Do not over mix.
- Fold in 1 cup of strawberries.
- Pipe mixture into the prepared donut pan, filling it 2/3 full. Bake donuts for 8-10 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let donuts cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack and let them cool completely.
- Puree 1/2 cup strawberries and strain through a fine mesh strainer, trying to extract as much juice as you can. Combine strawberry juice and powdered sugar. Stir and add warm water to thin it, if needed.
- Dip donuts into glaze. Serve immediately or keep in an air tight container in the fridge for 2 days.
All ingredients should be at room temperature. Buttermilk should not be cold. Coconut oil should be melted, but not too hot.
