Ingredients

Lemon Strawberry Doughnut Batter

  • ¾ cup vanilla almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 cup diced fresh strawberries

Chocolate Strawberry Glaze

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
  • Topping such as Valentine's colored sprinkles or Chocolate M&M's Strawberry

Instructions

Lemon Strawberry Baked Doughnuts

  • Preheat oven to 425º F.  In a small bowl, combine almond milk, lemon juice, and zest. Stir in butter and eggs. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl combine, flour, sugar, nutmeg, and salt.
  • Pour liquid mixture into flour mixture. Whisk together until completely combined, then stir in strawberry pieces. 
  • Pour batter into a greased donut pan just below the edges, making sure to not cover center hole. Bake 9-10 minutes until cooked and golden. Remove from oven and cool slightly, then transfer doughnuts to a wire rack to cool completely.

Chocolate Strawberry Glaze

  • While doughnuts are baking: In a medium bowl mix together powdered sugar, strawberry preserves, and almond milk. It should be thick, but able to spread easily with a brush. 
  • Spread over each baked doughnut then top with desired decorations.

Notes

  • Use fresh, ripe strawberries that smell sweet for best flavor.
  • Although these baked doughnuts are made with simple ingredients you do need a doughnut pan to make them so make sure you have one before you start.
  • Make sure the doughnuts have cooled completely on a cooling rack before spreading the glaze over or it will melt off.
  • I prefer to use all-purpose flour and baking powder instead of self-raising flour because you are in control of the rising agent. If you use self-raising flour you may get different results.
  • If your glaze is too thick you can easily adjust the consistency but adding more almond milk or powdered sugar. 
  • Storage: Store the glazed doughnuts in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the fridge or freeze them for up to 3 months.
