What is Valentine’s Day all about? All the sweetest things! And here’s a recipe that everyone will surely love – Strawberry Baked Donuts! 🙂
Yields: 7 donuts
Time: 20 minutes
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 4 tablespoons vanilla Greek yogurt
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
- 4 strawberries
- 1 tablespoon strawberry jam
- 1-2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray donut 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 yogurt, milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter. Slowly mix wet ingredients into dry – just until fully combined (do not overmix).
Use a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip (or Ziploc bag with corner cut off) to pipe the batter into a 6-donut pan.
Fill the cavities about 2/3 full. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until donuts are set and golden brown.
Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan, about 5 minutes. Dip donuts into strawberry frosting 1-3 times, depending on desired thickness.
Slice strawberries and puree with 1 tablespoon strawberry jam. Slowly stir in 1 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar, adding more until you reach desired thickness and consistency. Donuts are best served immediately. Store leftovers in airtight containers for up to 2 days.
***You may freeze the donuts (glazed or unglazed) for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and warm to your liking.
