Mini Strawberry Donuts

Baked Mini Strawberry Donuts

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Course: Dessert
Servings: 36 donuts

Equipment

  • mini donut pan

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp butter at room temperature
  • 2 cups spelt flour plus a bit extra for donut pan
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup olive oil you'll need 2 extra tbsp too
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped strawberries
  • 1 bag personalized My M&M's optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Butter donuts pans with room temperature butter, then sprinkle lightly with flour and shake upside down to remove excess flour.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt, make a well in center of mixture and set aside.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together buttermilk, olive oil, vanilla and eggs, then pour into well in flour. 
  • Using a wooden spoon, stir mixture just until combined, then fold in 2/3 cup finely chopped strawberries.
  • Fill each donut pan half full. I recommend using a piping bag to get the batter in the pans since the holes are so small!
  • Bake in your preheated oven 11 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center of donut comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool several minutes in donut pan then invert onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Once cool dip top halves of donuts into either the strawberry glaze or chocolate glaze and decorate with your M&M’s. I love the mix of crushed M&M’s along with one cute My M&M phrase per donut.
  • Have fun decorating them!! 

Notes

For the Strawberry Glaze:
  • Prepare glaze just before dipping cooled donuts….if you make it too early, it will thicken and make dipping impossible
  • In a mixing bowl, combine 1/2 cup finely chopped strawberries and half of the powdered sugar.
  • Stir until mixture starts to become moistened, then allow to rest 1 minute.
  • Add in remaining powdered sugar and freeze dried strawberry powder, then stir until fully mixed (at this point mixture should be have the consistency of a thick glaze, and have a dip-able consistency, if not allow to rest another minute or two until some of the liquids have been extracted from the strawberries then stir again. I recommend adding water to thin. Just allow it to rest if needed until the strawberries begin to break down).
  • Use glaze immediately.
 
For the Chocolate Glaze:
  • Place the chocolate chips, butter, honey, and water in a medium bowl.
  • Melt this tasty concoction for increments of 20 second in the microwave, stirring after each time, until completely melted and smooth. So easy!
