Easy Baked Strawberry Doughnuts Recipe
Baked doughnuts are super simple to make and when they feature fresh fruit, it makes them even more appealing. How do you make doughnuts? For this recipe, whisk together all purpose flour with leavening ingredients and then add a mixture of sugar, oil and sour cream along with an egg to bind it all together. Once the batter is combined, fold in diced fresh strawberries and divide the batter into the wells of a doughnut pan. Bake until lightly golden and puffy, then cool and dip each one into an easy strawberry glaze.
How to Make the Best Strawberry Doughnuts Recipe
- Ingredients you'll need to make homemade Strawberry Doughnuts: All purpose flour, fresh strawberries (diced for the doughnuts and crushed for the glaze), baking powder, baking soda, salt, vegetable oil, sour cream, large egg, vanilla extract plus powdered sugar for the glaze.
- Kitchen tools you'll need: A large bowl, medium bowl and small bowl, whisk, strawberry huller, sharp knife and cutting board, measuring cups and spoons, rubber spatula, and non stick doughnut pans either a 12 count or two 6 count pans.
- If strawberries aren’t in season, frozen strawberries can be substituted for fresh. Frozen strawberries may change the color slightly.
- To divide the batter for the doughnuts, you can use a tablespoon to dollop it evenly into the pan or place it into a large Ziploc bag, then pipe it into the wells. Cut off the corner of the bag leaving a hole large enough for the strawberries to pass through.
- These doughnuts are best eaten the day you bake them. They can be stored in an airtight container chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
- Due to the fresh strawberries in the glaze, it will absorb into the doughnut when storing, after about a day. The sweetness is still there, however the glaze will no longer be visible. You can add more by repeating step 8 and 9. Just know that you are adding more sugar and it will definitely taste sweeter.
- Alternately, you can bake the doughnuts and glaze them just before serving.
- If you are planning to freeze them, I would suggest freezing the doughnut prior to adding the glaze and adding the glaze on the day you serve them. Freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

- ½ cup finely diced strawberries (about ¼ inch)
- 1 ½ cups powdered sugar

- To make the Glaze: In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar with crushed strawberries. The glaze should be thick, you can add more crushed strawberries until desired consistency is reached. (Test thickness by slowly dripping off the end of the spoon in a thick ribbon.)
