Prep Time: 25 Min

Cook Time: 15 Min
Make the batter. Puree strawberries and cook until reduced. Whisk the wet ingredients in one bowl and the dry ingredients in another. Fold the two together then add diced strawberries.
Pipe batter. Add the batter to a piping bag and pipe it into a greased donut mold.
Bake. Bake at 425°F for 7-9 minutes. They'll spring back when pressed lightly with your fingertip.
Dip in strawberry glaze. Cook strawberries until tender then press through a sieve. Add the juice to powdered sugar and dilute with milk. Dip each donut into the loose glaze.
Add cream cheese. Mix cream cheese with powdered sugar and pipe over the glazed donuts. Let sit until both glazes have set.
Serve & enjoy. Donuts are best the day they are made but will keep airtight in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
These strawberry donuts are supremely light and fluffy with a flavorful strawberry glaze. They are baked instead of fried, making them easy to make!
