These donuts have become one of my favorite weekend breakfast treats.  When you hear homemade donut you may automatically assume they are complicated. However, surprisingly enough they are one of the simplest things to make. They only take about 20 minutes from start to finish. Yep, that’s it!

This donut recipe is baked instead of fried. The clean up after frying something is the thing I dread the most, so I avoid it if I can. I used a donut pan that I found in Bed Bath & Beyond. It cost me less than $10. I can see this pan getting tons of use.

Today’s donut recipe is a real treat. They are full of chunky strawberries. Dipped in a light, lemony glaze. And they are taste bud satisfying.

These donuts are soft, moist, and cake like. I used greek yogurt and milk to keep the donuts moist. And they are definitely not lacking in the flavor department. Strawberry greek yogurt combined with strawberry preserves ensures you get a powerful burst of flavor in each bite.

I dipped the top of each donut into a homemade lemon glaze. If you’re feeling extra festive, you can shower them with funfetti sprinkles.

I wanted the donuts to have a thick layer of glaze, so I dipped each one twice. This glaze is so easy! Whisk together powdered sugar, fresh lemon juice, and milk. It is the right balance of tart and sweet and pairs wonderfully with the strawberry donut.

This recipe yields only about 10 donuts. The perfect amount. Plus they are so simple to make, you can whip up a second batch in no time if you needed to.

These lemon glazed strawberry donuts are now one of my favorite donut recipes. What is your favorite donut?

Ingredients

For the donuts

  • 1 and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cup strawberry greek yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup strawberry preserves

For the glaze

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda; make a well in the center of dry mixture. Combine milk, butter, egg, vanilla, greek yogurt, and preserves; stir well with a whisk. Add to flour mixture and stir just until moist.

  3. Fit a large cup with a plastic zip-top bag. Spoon batter into the bag. Remove bag from the cup and cut the corner off bag. Pipe batter into a 6-count donut pan sprayed with cooking spray. Fill each cavity 2/3 full.

  4. Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in comes out clean. Remove from pan immediately and cool on a wire rack.

  5. In a medium sized bowl, combine powdered sugar, lemon juice, and milk. Mix until no sugar clumps remain. Dip each donut top into the glaze mixture. Allow glaze to set and dip once more. Top with sprinkles if desired.
