Strawberry Donuts with Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting – if you love a good strawberry donut, give this yummy recipe a try. The frosting is incredible!
My kids loved my cinnamon sugar donuts so much that they have been begging me to try different flavors of baked donuts. I finally got around to it. We had some fresh strawberries one Saturday morning, so I decided to give strawberry donuts a try. Oh boy. These turned out so yummy!
The fresh strawberries in the batter make these donuts extra moist, and so pretty. They are definitely more dense than my cinnamon sugar donuts, but my kids loved them!
And don’t get me started on the frosting. Oh goodness. It could be consumed by the spoonful. But we managed to get it onto the top of the donuts. The tartness of the berries is a perfect compliment to the sweet frosting. Seriously yummy stuff here!
I love the pretty pink color of these cupcakes. I think they would be so fun for a baby or bridal shower. But of course you can just serve them for everyday brunch like I did. Your family is sure to love them!
If you’ve never made baked donuts before, don’t be scared. It is so simple! If you can make muffins, you can make a strawberry donut. All you need is a donut pan. I have the Wilton non-stick donut pan, and I highly recommend it! It works like a charm, and is even dishwasher safe. It makes donut making a breeze!
