Instructions

for the donuts

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a non-stick donut pan with oil and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combing the sugar, melted butter, egg, vanilla extract, almond extract, and milk. Whisk until everything comes together. In a separate bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and stir together until everything is mixed. The batter will be thick and tacky. Stir in the freeze dried strawberries.
  3. Transfer mixture to a piping bag fitted with a large circular tip (I also use a regular plastic bag and cut a hole in the corner). Pipe batter into prepared donut pan.
  4. Bake donuts for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before frosting.

for the glaze

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk powdered sugar, cream, salt and vanilla together. Mixture will be pretty thick, but still drippy. If it seems too drippy, add one more tablespoon of powdered sugar.
  2. Divide icing into two shallow bowls, put 1/4 of the icing in one bowl and the rest in another ( you can just eye ball this). Mix a few drops of red food coloring into the smaller of the bowls to make pink. Microwave both bowls of icing for 15 seconds to get it to thin up.
  3. Drizzle some of the pink icing into the white. This will give the marbled effect. Make sure you don’t put too much pink into the white at a time to ensure you get marbled icing every time.Dip half of the donuts into the warm icing, then immediately sprinkle with crushed up freeze dried strawberries (if you wait too long the icing will harden up and the strawberries won’t stick).
  4. Repeat with the remaining donuts. Let icing harden and enjoy!
