Spring's first strawberries were perfect in these baked strawberry donuts. Only slightly indulgent, it's hard to pass up these baked donuts! We certainly LOVED them!
Ingredients
Donuts
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¾ cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ⅔ cup strawberries, finely chopped
Frosting
  • ¼ cup strawberries, chopped
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Mist a 3½ to 4-inch donut pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk to combine the wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a second medium bowl, whisk to combine the buttermilk, eggs, melted and cooled butter, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the wet and fold to combine with a rubber spatula. Fold in strawberries.
