Savor the Flavor: Mini Strawberry Donuts

These little pieces of heaven are so much fun to make and absolutely delicious!

 

Mini Strawberry Donuts

Ingredients:

2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 cup canola or vegetable oil

¾ cup skim milk + 2 tsp lemon juice (or ¾ c. buttermilk)

1 tsp vanilla

2 eggs

1 tsp vinegar (white or apple cider)

¾ cup finely chopped strawberries, divided

1 cup powdered sugar (for glaze)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. In a medium bowl, stir together oil, buttermilk, vanilla, and eggs, then add to dry ingredients. Stir just until combined.

Add vinegar and mix thoroughly. Fold in ½ cup strawberries. Lightly grease a doughnut pan (if your pan has 6 holes, work in 2 batches). Fill molds three-quarters full (I recommend using a pastry bag or easy accent decorator) and bake until golden brown, about 8 minutes.

Make glaze: Whisk together remaining ¼ cup strawberries, powdered sugar, and 1 Tbsp. water, adding more water if necessary. Place doughnuts on a cooling rack set on a sheet tray and spoon glaze on tops. Let dry 5 minutes before serving.

 

Yield: 24 mini donuts
