Make the Homer Simpson in You Proud – Strawberry Glazed Buttermilk Donuts

It is hard to deny my passion for donuts. I know they aren’t good for me and I don’t eat them very often because when I do I have a hard time controlling myself with wanting them all. Every once in a while I will get one as a special treat. I rarely make them at as well, only because they take some work and deep-frying them, along with being unhealthy, leaves a lot of clean up behind it. I invested in a donut pan from King Arthur Flour a few months back with the intention of making some oven-baked donuts but I was waiting for a really good recipe to come along to try out. I found one in this recipe from Saveur for strawberry glazed buttermilk donuts and they gave me another good use for some of the locally-grown strawberries I had just picked up from the farmers’ market.

Strawberry Glazed Oven-Baked Buttermilk Donuts

1 14 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
34 cup  granulated sugar
12 teaspoon baking soda
12 teaspoon kosher salt
23 cup canola oil, plus more for greasing
12 cup buttermilk
1 egg
12 teaspoon white vinegar
12 teaspoon vanilla extract
12 cup finely chopped strawberries
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
Heat the  oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a  large bowl; make a well in the center of the mixed ingredients and set the bowl aside. Whisk the canola oil, buttermilk, egg, vinegar, and vanilla in a separate medium bowl; add the wet ingredients to the well in the dry ingredients and mix all the ingredients together until they form into a smooth batter. Stir in half of the strawberries and set the batter aside. Lightly grease a nonstick donut pan then spoon 2 tablespoons of the batter into each mold. Bake until the donuts are golden and a toothpick inserted into a donut comes out clean, about 13 to 15 minutes. Invert the donuts onto a baking sheet with a wire rack set in it to let the donuts cool completely.
Whisk the remaining strawberries, confectioners’ sugar, and 2 tablespoons of water together in a medium bowl until the mixture is smooth until smooth. Dip the tops of the donuts into the glaze and return the donuts to the wire rack until the glaze is set.
The recipe states that you will get 18 donuts from the ingredients; I got about 15 but I guess it depends on how accurate you are about placing the batter into the mold. I tried to fill each until it was about 2/3 of the way up the mold. In any case, the donuts came out very nice and having that little bit of strawberry mixed into the batter added just the right touch to them. The glaze was great as well, though it’s not quite as pink as you might see in the donuts as donut shops. I suppose you could add more strawberries to the mix to brighten the color more or even add a bit of food coloring if you really wanted it, but I thought the glaze came out just right and was not overly sweet but had good taste to it. These were easy enough to make and while they may not taste the same as the deep-fried donuts you love, they are still pretty good.
That’s all I have for today. Check back next time for another recipe. Until then, enjoy the rest of your day and enjoy your meal!
