Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray your donut baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.Place a cooling rack over a baking tray for when you cool and decorate your donuts. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together egg, milk, melted butter and vanilla extract.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir together until well combined. Do not overmix.You can use a measuring cup or piping bag to portion the batter into your donut pan – whatever you fill most comfortable with. You need to fill each cavity about 3/4 of the way full as they will rise when baking.
  6. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean and the donuts are springy and golden brown.
  7. Allow the donuts to cool for 2 minutes before removing from the pan and placing on the prepared cooling rack.
  8. For the glaze, puree the strawberries in a blender until smooth.
  9. Place a fine mesh sieve above a bowl or measuring cup and pour the strawberries in. You can discard what the sieve catches or use it in another recipe.
  10. Pour the strained strawberry puree into a small bowl and add confectioner’s sugar until you form a dippable icing. I also had to add about a tablespoon of cream, but adjust as needed. The strawberries add a faint pink color to the icing but I amped it up with a bit of pink dye.
  11. Dip each donut into the glaze, hold above the bowl to let the glaze drip off, and then re-dip to get a thick coating.
  12. Place the dipped donut on the cooling rack and immediately sprinkle on your choice of sprinkles.
  13. Repeat with all donuts.
  14. Let dry before packaging or serving.
