This Strawberry Buttermilk Donuts Recipe is the perfect light breakfast recipe or snack for this holiday season.
If you are looking for a Valentine’s Day Breakfast or just a Saturday Morning Spring Breakfast idea, this Strawberry Buttermilk Donuts Recipe is for you!
One of the most important things for me about the holiday season is the breakfasts. We are expecting out of town guests and we also want to have cozy and comfortable little breakfasts with my family. So when this season rolls around I really want to amp up my breakfast game and create a couple more options that are as delicious as they are easy to make.
My favorite option so far has been donuts, so I’ve been having a lot of fun lately playing around with recipes and ideas and different topping and filling combinations. However, there’s one recipe that wins my heart every single time. Strawberry Buttermilk donuts.
These donuts are good, as in so good I just want to have them every single day and then some more. They are also incredibly packed with strawberry flavor and have a bit of tartness from the buttermilk that I personally love. They are sweet but not overly sweet so you can really feel all the flavors. And best of all they are really easy to make! Like so so easy you can make them in around 20 minutes from start to finish. Say what? Homemade donuts in 20 minutes? Count me IN!
The reason why they are so quick to make is because they are baked not fried (that also makes them healthier). Baked donuts are like a thicker version of a cake, which I personally love.
You can make them with frozen berries or fresh ones and best of all you can freeze them so you can make a big batch and then just place them into freezer-friendly bags and into the freezer for up to 6 months. Once you are ready to have them, just give them a quick spin in the microwave and you are all set.
