Easy Strawberry-Glazed Baked Donuts Recipe for a Sweet Valentine's Day

These easy baked strawberry-glazed donuts scream Valentine's Day! Surprise that special someone or your kids with this easy baked donut recipe and you'll be MVP today.

Have you ever thought about where donuts came from? According to Oxford Companion to American Food and Drink, doughnuts are "deep-fried cakes with a long European history and roots in still earlier Middle Eastern cuisine. They were introduced to America by the Dutch in New Netherlands to America as oliekoecken (oil cakes or fried cakes)." Interesting! And we give credit to Dunkin' Donuts and Shipley Do-Nuts! 

This easy baked donut recipe is made with flour, sugar, baking powder, a pinch of salt, butter, an egg, milk and vanilla. The donuts are baked in donut pans until cooked through. The warm fresh-baked donuts are dipped into a glaze made with strawberries, powdered sugar and milk. Add some colorful sprinkles and a little food coloring, and you've got a pretty in pink donut loaded with strawberry flavor.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • dash of salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 


  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups powdered sugar (as needed)
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons milk (as needed)
  • pink or red food coloring

Here's how to make it:

  7. Dip the warm donuts into the glaze. Set on wax paper to harden. Decorate with sprinkles, if desired.
