Strawberry Buttermilk Doughnuts

We love a good doughnut.  A few of the sisters worked at our friends doughnut shop while in high school.  We love these super soft baked doughnuts.  The buttermilk and fresh strawberries makes for an amazing taste.  And since they aren’t fried, go ahead and eat 2 without any guilt!

  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry jam (or Smucker's Simply Fruit Strawberry Spread)
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, diced very small
  • Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, diced very small
  • 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon strawberry jam or fruit spread
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease cake donut pans with non stick cooking spray (I used 2 Wilton doughnut pans that hold 6 doughnuts each)
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Mix until well blended.
  3. In another bowl combine the melted butter, eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and strawberry jam.
  4. Add the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Mix until combined, then fold in diced strawberries. Carefully spoon mixture into doughnut pans, filling 3/4 full.
  5. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  6. Cool on a wire rack. Then make the glaze while the doughnuts are cooling.
  7. Glaze:
  8. Mix strawberries, whipping cream, and jam until blended. Then add powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Add more powdered sugar if you need to thicken the glaze more.You can drizzle the glaze over the doughnuts, or dip them into the glaze. We still had glaze left over, so we dipped them a second time after the first layer of glaze set up for a few minutes.
  9. Eat right away because these doughnuts are soooooo delicious!

    • You could try putting the dough in a muffin tin, but they would turn out like strawberry muffins. For making doughnuts, you really need a doughnut pan. Now is a good time of year to buy them. There are a lot of holiday deals going on. Here is a link if you want to get them on Amazon. They ship quickly.
