Sweet, simple, and delicious, Baked Strawberry Glazed Doughnuts. We all love a classic strawberry glazed doughnut, but making them at home? Yep, even better. Homemade baked strawberry doughnuts with both strawberry jam and dried strawberries for double the strawberry flavor. These light pink berry-filled doughnuts are glazed with a cream cheese strawberry icing, and they do not disappoint. Each sweet bite is perfectly soft, doughy, and topped with a creamy glaze – so good!
I’ve wanted to make doughnuts all summer long. I’ve had ideas from banana bread, to chocolate-coated doughnuts, and everything in between.
But then the new Rhode strawberry glaze lip treatment launched and the second I saw those Krispy Kreme doughnuts, I was sold. I had to make strawberry glazed doughnuts. But BAKED, because I actually think they’re better than fried.
And a side note here, Rhode sent me the new strawberry glaze and it’s my favorite lip treatment yet. The color is gorgeous! I’d join that waitlist you all. It’s a SOLID product that once you try you’ll love.
It’s funny the things that can excite me and how they end up inspiring me. Fashion and beauty always give me my favorite ideas, so I LOVED creating this recipe.
These doughnuts are so yummy. Personally, I think they’re even better than the originals at Krispy Kreme.
Step 1: make the batter
For the doughnut batter, it’s pretty simple. Mix melted butter with vanilla, two large eggs, honey or maple syrup (for added sweetness), your favorite strawberry jam, and some milk.
That’s all your wet ingredients. For the dry, I love to use whole wheat pastry flour, a spoonful of freeze-dried strawberries, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
Mix the wet and dry until just combined.
Step 2: bake
Once the batter is ready to go, bake it in a doughnut pan. If you don’t have a doughnut pan, make doughnut holes using either a regular muffin pan or a mini muffin pan. Either option works just the same.
Step 3: the strawberry glaze
This is the most important step. The glaze really makes these doughnuts delicious.
Mix cream cheese with sweet sugar, more strawberry powder, and vanilla. And honestly, the doughnut holes always turn out cute!
Dip the baked doughnuts into the glaze, then let the glaze set up for a few minutes. Not too strong, not too sweet, but just right. Especially when spread on top of a warm doughnut.
