Have you ever tried baking donuts? If not, now is the time to start. These Strawberry Coffee Cake Donuts are loaded with fresh, chopped strawberries, topped with coffee cake streusel and drizzled with glaze. Breakfast treats have never been more pretty or tasty as these!
This past weekend, I made these beautiful and tasty donuts. The weather has been cold, dreary and down right depressing. I needed something to brighten our spirits and enliven our taste buds. These definitely did their job and left my family asking for more!
Baking a batch of these donuts are pretty simple. The batter starts with a simple cake mix and adding a few additional goodies. You’ll also need donut pans, as these are pretty essential in the donut baking process. I bought my donut pans at Bed Bath and Beyond, but you can also purchase them on Amazon. I would definitely recommend getting two pans. Each pan holds 6 donuts, and its nice to have an extra pan to rotate out when the other batch is baking.
Once you have your batter prepared, spray the pan with non-stick baking spray and fill the donut cups (about 2/3 full). Top with some of the delicious struesel topping, and some additional chopped strawberries and get them baking. These donuts bake up beautifully, and will smell completely amazing as they come out of the oven!
Let them sit for a few minutes in the pan, and then gently remove from the donut pan with a butter knife. Transfer to a cooling rack. Once cool, these babies are ready for glaze!
The pretty-in-pink breakfast treat – am I right?!
