INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTIONS
This recipe uses basic ingredients and no special notes needed other than to say that freshly squeezed lemon juice is recommended and not the bottled juice.
These Strawberry Glazed Donuts comes together so quickly!
Start by melting the butter and setting it aside to cool.
Next, sift together all the dry ingredients.
In a smaller mixing bowl, beat the egg, then add in milk, melted butter and vanilla.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
Gently fold in the finely chopped strawberries.
Spoon the batter into greased donut pan about ¾ full.
Bake in 350°F oven for 15 to 17 minutes. My oven was 16 minutes for each batch.
Allow the donuts to cool for 5 minutes once you remove them from the oven.
Remove the donuts from the pans and cool a few more minutes while you make the glaze.
Meanwhile, prepare the glaze by finely chopping 2 tbsp. of strawberries (about 2 large strawberries).
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together 1 tbsp. lemon juice and 1 cup of powdered sugar. Next, add the strawberries and stir until combined.
Add more lemon juice if needed (up to 1 more tbsp.) to reach a spreadable consistency.
You want to be able to drizzle the glaze easily from a spoon.
The easiest way to apply the glaze is to lay a sheet of parchment paper under the wire rack and drizzle over top.
Very lightly sift the glazed donuts with powdered sugar.
