  • Doughnut Pan


Dry Ingredients:

  • 230 grams (2 cups) cake flour sifted, can use all-purpose flour
  • 150 grams sugar caster or superfine sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg ground

Wet Ingredients:

  • 170 ml buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 30 grams butter melted

Strawberry Glaze:

  • 4 strawberries washed and hulled
  • 120 grams (½ a cup) Icing sugar confectioners/powdered sugar



  • Preheat your oven to 220 deg C (425F). In a large bowl combine the sifted flour, sugar, baking powder and nutmeg. Stir well to combine.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the buttermilk, eggs and melted butter and whisk until well combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until just combined.
  • Lay a piping bag over a tall glass and spoon your doughnut batter into the bag. 
  • Pipe the batter into your pre-oiled pan. The batter should fill the moulds to just under full. If you don’t have a piping bag use a spoon to spoon the mixture into the moulds. Bake for 5-7 mins. Remove the doughnuts and allow them to cool on a wire rack.

Strawberry Glaze:

  • Heat the strawberries in the microwave for 30 seconds. Place the powdered sugar into a bowl. Mash the berries using a sieve and allow the juices to mix with the sugar.
  • Whisk the strawberry liquid and sugar until smooth and free of any lumps.
  • To ice the doughnuts, dip them into the strawberry glaze. Allow the glaze to set and top with sprinkles if used.



  • Optional Ingredients - Add a little vanilla extract to the batter for a little extra flavour. Add some lime juice and/or strawberry jam to your glaze for a little extra zing and flavour. Finally, add sprinkles to turn these into sprinkled strawberry doughnuts.
  • Do not overwork your doughnut batter. I cannot stress this enough. These strawberry glazed doughnuts are light and delicate because the ingredients are mixed until just combined. Overworking the batter will produce a rubbery texture.
  • Grease your doughnut pan. Use non-stick cooking spray to grease your doughnut pan - it will be easier to remove the doughnuts once cooked.
  • Freezing the baked doughnuts. If you prefer, you can bake them and once cooled, place them in a freezer in a Ziploc bag. To reheat them, either use a microwave or put them in the oven at a low temperature.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
