Strawberries and Cream Cake Mix Donuts

Ingredients

  • FOR DONUTS
  • 1 box Strawberry Cake Mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • FOR GLAZE
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh strawberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, eggs, butter, and cream. Stir by hand until well combined.
  3. Pour batter into greased donut pan, making sure to not overfill. The donuts will rise quite a bit!
  4. Bake for approximately 8-10 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick and it come out clean.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a cooling rack.
  6. While donuts cool, make your glaze by combining powdered sugar, cream, and chopped strawberries in an electric mixer, beating until well combined. Make the glaze thicker or thinner by adding more or less cream.
  7. Dip each donut face down into the glaze and then allow to cool until the icing hardens a bit. It might not harden all the way because of the strawberries, but it will firm up quite a bit.
  8. Enjoy!
