Quick, easy, fruity and colorful these Strawberry Lemon Donuts are a fun, fast treat for morning, noon or night!
You guy’s its been so long since I’ve posted a donut recipe! Like I’m in love with making donuts, but they have literally taken a wayside to other recipe experiments since the end of last year. It’s crazy. I think what it was was that I would always make donuts for Mr. Non Sweet’s Lovers work and when he got laid off for the winter I ceased making them.
Well not that he is working again, the donuts are coming out my oven like hot cakes! So since it’s finally Spring and all I figured some fun fruity flavor were in order! So Strawberry Lemon Donuts it was! Plus they are covered in sprinkles! Who isn’t in love with sprinkles!
These are one of my kids favorite flavors, but strawberry and lemon just go over so well together anyways that its one of my absolute flavors as well. Plus these bad boys whip up in like 10 minutes. So who doesn’t love that?! I know I do, it get’s the kids, the hubby and me fed in no time.
So my daughter is our pickiest eater around here. I don’t know if it’s because she’s 3, a girl, or just her personality but its pulling teeth to get her to eat ANYTHING around here. Well I found the solution my friends!! I FOUND THE SOLUTION! Just add sprinkles, it works like a charm!
This girl literally ate my whole batch that I had to make another one just to be able to feed everyone else. People…that NEVER happens. She literally will turn her nose up at anything and everything until she is just too hungry and has to finally eat something.
All hail Strawberry Lemon Donuts. I’m hoping that it was literally the flavor that drew her into these, but I’m almost certain it was the sprinkles, but I’m sure the flavor was a close second because she at them right?!? So this mom is going to call that a win!
I always use my same base recipe for all my donuts. You can check out some of my faves such as these Cinnamon Toast Crunch Donuts or these Strawberry Lime Donuts. Heck, just search donuts and you’ll see my entire collection and have pick for yourself.
But out of all the donuts I’ve made, these ones are by far the most fun so far! I mean sprinkles are pretty awesome, they dress things up and make them pretty! AND they would be the perfect addition to your Easter breakfast/brunch if you’re still on the hunt for something fun for a gathering or just for the kids.
So celebrate spring and all the glorious flavors and make yourself a batch of these fun Strawberry Lemon Donuts and call it a day, ok?
