Ingredients

Donuts

Strawberry Glaze

  • cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons half & half
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry jam I used Bonne Maman

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Prepare a donut pan (or 2 if you have 2) by greasing with butter and then sprinkling with flour.
  • Whisk together all wet ingredients (egg, melted butter, vanilla extract and yogurt).
  • In a medium bowl whisk together dry ingredients ( flour, sugar, baking soda and salt).
  • Combine wet ingredients with dry until just combined with a wooden spoon. The batter will be very stiff.
  • Fold in the diced strawberries.
  • Transfer the donut batter to a disposable piping bag and pipe into a greased donut pan. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until donuts are slightly golden. Allow donuts to cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then invert onto a cooling rack to fully cool!
  • Prepare glaze while donuts are cooling. In a medium deep bowl, whisk together confectioners sugar, heavy cream and strawberry jam.
  • Dip the tops of the donuts in the glaze and return to a cooling rack with a cookie sheet underneath to set. Garnish with fresh strawberries if desired!

Notes

  • Do not forget to properly prepare your donut pan to avoid sticking. Thoroughly wipe and regrease if you are using the same pan to make a second batch.
  • The donut batter in this recipe is very thick, if you do not have a disposable piping bag use a ziplock bag with the corner cut to pipe as it would be very difficult to spoon the batter into the donut pan.
  • You can substitute any liquid in the glaze recipe. I like the cream to give it a richer texture but feel free to use water or your choice of milk.
  • These donuts are freshest the day they are made. The leftovers can be refrigerated for 1-2 days in an airtight container. They can be brought to room temperature before eating.
