Baked Strawberry Doughnuts
I love baked doughnuts! They’re super quick and easy to throw together, much less messier to make than fried doughnuts, and they are absolutely delicious.
These Baked Strawberry Doughnuts are bursting with flavour. They are so moist and fluffy, infused with vanilla, and stuffed full of chopped fresh strawberries.
These doughnuts are also topped with a fresh strawberry glaze, making them the perfect sweet treat to enjoy this Summer!

- Baking powder
- Large egg

- Buttermilk: See my recipe notes below on how to make your own buttermilk.
- Vegetable oil

How to make Baked Strawberry Doughnuts
To make these doughnuts, start by whisking together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg and sugar until combined. Add the buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract, and whisk until combined.
Add the dry ingredients, and fold in until just combined – do not overmix. Fold in the chopped strawberries.
Spoon the batter into a well-greased doughnut pan, filling almost to the top. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
TIP: Use a cake release spray to grease the doughnut pan. The baked doughnuts will be SO much easier to remove.
Allow to cool for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
For the glaze, puree the strawberries until smooth with a few small bits. You can do this step using a food processor, or a blender, or just a fork.
Add the vanilla extract and icing sugar, and mix until combined. Add milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the glaze is at your desired thickness.
Dip each doughnut into the glaze, and leave to set completely on the wire rack.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
These Baked Strawberry Doughnuts are:
- super quick and easy to make
- deliciously moist and fluffy
- infused with vanilla
- LOADED with fresh strawberries
- dunked in a sweet fresh strawberry glaze
How long will these doughnuts last? These doughnuts can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 2 days. The glaze will eventually soak into the doughnuts after a day or two, but they will be just as delicious!
Can I freeze these strawberry doughnuts? Yep! They also freeze well for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.
