I haven’t posted in a while, but recently was at the grocery store and strawberries were on sale. I racked my brain for what to bake and I remembered I had just purchased a donut pan, so I decided to take a stab at Strawberry Buttermilk Donuts.
I was so surprised by how easy making baked donuts is and how incredibly delicious this flavor was! It was fresh tasting, sweet, moist and so satisfying. Please give it a try and let me know how yours turned out!
Strawberry Buttermilk Baked Donuts
1 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
3⁄4 cup sugar
1⁄2 tsp. baking soda
1⁄2 tsp. kosher salt
2⁄3 cup canola oil
1⁄2 cup buttermilk
1⁄2 tsp. vanilla extract
1⁄2 cup finely chopped strawberries
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
Heat oven to 350°. Combine flour, sugar, soda, and salt in a bowl; make a well in the center and set aside. Whisk oil, buttermilk, egg, and vanilla in a bowl; add to well, and mix into a smooth batter. Stir in half the strawberries; set aside. Lightly grease a nonstick donut pan; spoon 2 tbsp. batter into each mold. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted into donut comes out clean, 13-15 minutes. Invert donuts onto a baking sheet, set donuts on a wire rack; let cool completely.
Whisk remaining strawberries, confectioners’ sugar, and 2 tbsp. water until smooth. Dip tops of donuts into glaze and return to wire rack until glaze is set.
