These donuts are made with strawberry cake from fresh strawberry puree. No artificial strawberry flavor from Jell-O in this one.
To make the best strawberry cake donuts is to first make a purée using fresh or frozen strawberries. Add that to butter cake batter and pipe them into a metal or silicone donut pan. Baking them gives you a light and strawberry infused donut that you can enjoy on its own, or decorate with a glaze and sprinkles.
To make the donuts you see here, I used USA pan's steel 6-well donut pan.
To make your life a little easier, make sure you pipe the batter into the donut wells! I use these piping bags here. I've tried just pouring from a bowl and it was a disaster. If you you don't have any piping bags, use a ziptop bag with the tip cut off.
For decorations, I used freeze dried strawberries, which you can get at Target now!
And the little pink pearls are called Crispearls. They are made by Callebaut and are crispy like a Rice Krispie on the inside and have a really intense strawberry-white chocolate flavor.
