Description

Soft, cakey, and moist homemade donuts are baked not fried, and topped with strawberry frosting!


Ingredients

Scale

Donuts

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 6 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 Tablespoons vanilla Greek yogurt (or plain or strawberry)
  • 2 Tablespoons milk (I used vanilla almond milk)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

Strawberry Frosting

  • 34 strawberries
  • 1 Tablespoon strawberry jam
  • 12 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • optional: red sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Make the donuts: Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Spray donut pan (or muffin pan) with non-stick spray. Set aside. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, and baking powder. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, milk, egg, vanilla, and melted butter. Slowly mix wet ingredients into dry- just until fully combined. Do NOT overmix.
  2. Use a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip (or a Ziploc bag with a corner cut off) to pipe the batter into a 6-donut pan. Fill the donut cavities about 2/3 full.  Bake 8 to 11 minutes until donuts are set and golden brown. They will spring back when touched. Mine took exactly 10 minutes.
  3. Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan, about 5 minutes. Dip donuts into strawberry frosting 1-3 times, depending on how thick you’d like them frosted. Top with sprinkles.
  4. Make the frosting: Slice strawberries and puree with 1 Tbsp strawberry jam. Slowly stir in 1 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar, adding more until you reached the desired consistency and coloring. I wanted thick frosting, so I added 2 cups. Donuts are best served immediately. Leftovers keep well covered tightly at room temperature for up to 2 days.

Notes

  1. Freezing Instructions: You may freeze the donuts (glazed or unglazed) for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and warm up to your liking.
