Strawberry Glazed Doughnuts


Doughnuts are everyone’s favorite morning indulgence doughnuts and these strawberry-glazed doughnuts are everything you want a doughnut to be. It has the same idea of a crispy light delicious buttermilk cake base with a homemade strawberry glaze on top.


  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 2 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Strawberry Glaze;

  • 1 cup roughly chopped strawberries
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 vanilla bean, scraped
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • Sprinkles, for garnishing


  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and nutmeg in a large bowl.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the granulated sugar, buttermilk, sour cream, melted butter, vanilla, and eggs.
  3. Beat on medium speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  4. With the mixer on low, add the dry ingredients, mixing until just blended.
  5. Flour a work surface and your hands. Remove the dough from the bowl, place it on your work surface and pat the dough into 9 1/2-by-11-inch rectangle about 1/2-inch thick.
  6. Cut out doughnuts with a floured doughnut cutter to make 6 doughnuts and 6 doughnut holes.
  7. Pat out the dough scraps to make 3 more doughnuts and doughnut holes. Set aside on a tray.
  8. Meanwhile, fill a large heavy pot with 2 inches of oil. Heat over medium heat until a deep-frying thermometer inserted in the oil reaches 350 degrees F.
  9. Fry the doughnuts and doughnut holes a few at a time until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
  10. Gently flip and continue to fry until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes more.
  11. When both sides are golden brown, carefully transfer the doughnuts to a cooling rack lined with paper towels.

For the glaze;

  1. Combine the strawberries, water, vinegar, and vanilla bean in a small pot over medium heat.
  2. Cook until juicy, about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly then blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into a bowl, add the confectioners’ sugar and whisk thoroughly until light pink.
  4. Move the doughnuts onto a cooling rack. Pour the glaze over the doughnuts and top with sprinkles.
