Super Soft and fluffy Strawberry Lemon Baked Doughnuts, with a tangy glaze and dried freeze strawberries as garnish.
The flavor combo was so good! -citrusy, fresh, with the perfect amount of sweetness- that it will have you going for seconds!
They’re made with Strawberry Lifeway Kefir. Because of it’s acidity, it reacts with baking soda and helps the doughnuts stay fluffy, soft and very moist, and it contributes to it’s delicious tanginess.

Some of the health benefits associated with it are:
Fried doughnuts are made by being coated in batter and flour, then deep fried and coated in sugar; instead, baked doughnuts are made just by baking your dough in a doughnut tin. As a matter of fact, you can actually make any cake batter into a doughnut!
Which one is better? I would say this varies depending on individual tastes and preferences; also in your health choices and general health habits
To make a baked doughnut you will need a non-stick doughnut tin. You can find them in many retailer stores, online or baking specialty stores
Even though your tins are non-stick, I highly recommend using baking spray. The last thing you want is your perfect baked doughnut sticking to your tin.
If your doughnut tin is made out of silicone, place it on top of a baking sheet for more control when moving it in and out of the oven.
Make sure to fill your doughnuts 2/3 full; if you fill them more, they could end up overflowing and lose their shape.
I like to use a piping bag to pipe the doughnut batter into my doughnut pan in a mess-free and even way.
Tap your tin against the counter a few times to let the dough fill your tin evenly.
Make sure your doughnuts are completely cooled before adding your glaze, or glaze could become runny and too thin
Sprinkle your doughnuts with your dried freeze strawberries immediately after glazing them, to avoid glaze from drying and your dried freeze strawberries not sticking
Freshly baked doughnuts stored in an air-tight container at room temperature will last up to 2 days. They will last up to 1 week in the fridge.
I assure you, once you taste baked doughnuts, you won’t mind having them instead of deep fried ones!
