These mini strawberry donuts with a strawberry lime glaze are utterly sublime.
For the Donuts
1 Cup whole wheat flour
1 Cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/3 Cup granulated sugar substitute or sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 Cup non-fat buttermilk
1/4 Cup honey
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 Cup strawberries, mashed with fork
For the Glaze
2 large strawberries
about 1 Cup confectioner’s sugar
1/4 tsp fresh lime juice
Preheat oven to 180C. Spray donut pan with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine flours, sugar substitute, and baking powder. In a small bowl, mix together the buttermilk, eggs, honey, butter, and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until well-combined. Stir in mashed strawberries.
Spoon batter into a pastry bag or a ziplock bag with the corner snipped. Pipe batter into a donut pan or mini muffin pan. Fill about 2/3 full.
Bake for 5-7 minutes or until donuts start to turn light golden brown.
Allow to cool for a couple of minutes in the pan before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
While the donuts are cooling, prepare the glaze.
In a small bowl, beat the strawberries with a hand mixer until well mashed. Add the confectioner’s sugar and lime juice. Beat until smooth.
Dip cooled donuts in glaze and allow to harden.
Store left-over glazed donuts in the refrigerator, if there are any left!
