Strawberry Donut Cakes

Hi friends of Lark & Linen! Jennifer here – excited to be here while Jacquelyn is off enjoying the sun and some tasty chips and salsa. While we are all dreaming of trading places with her I’m here to share a little cake donut recipe with you.

I love my share of sweet treats just like everyone else but my problem is I have zero self control. I’ll go into a place with good intentions *only one donut please* but only to realize I’ve inhaled one and ordered two more for “later” (which really end up being one for later because I couldn’t wait). So I figured it was time I came up with a healthier alternative. While I admit these don’t taste like you’re good ol regular donut, it’s gluten free and sugar free and makes my heart happy. And well I can have three in one sitting and not feel so guilty.

FOR THE DONUTS
  1. 2 1/2 Cups blanched almond flour sifted
  2. 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
  3. 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  4. 1 Cup diced strawberries
  5. 6 Tablespoons honey
  6. 1/4 Cup coconut oil, softened or liquid
  7. 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  8. 1 Teaspoon lemon juice
  9. 3 Whole large room temp eggs (separated)
  10. FOR THE GLAZE
  11. 1/3 Cup warmed coconut butter
  12. 2 Tablespoons honey
  13. 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  14. 1/2 Cup of crushed freeze dried strawberries
  15. Filtered water as needed
Instructions
  1. FOR THE DONUTS
  2. 1. Preheat oven for 350º
  3. 2. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients – almond flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. 3. In another bowl combine honey, coconut oil, vanilla, lemon, and egg yolks.
  5. 4. Mix the two bowls you’ve mixed above until well combined.
  6. 5. Beat egg whites until nice soft peaks form. Fold the egg whites and diced strawberries with the rest of the batter until no egg whites are visible, but do not overmix.
  7. 6. Grease your donut pan and then fill each donut mold about 3/4 full – about two large tablespoons for the mold i used.
  8. 7. Bake for 18 mins or until just firm to the touch. Remove from pan and allow donuts to cool on wire rack.
  9. FOR THE GLAZE
  10. 1. In a small bowl mix coconut butter and honey into a thick paste
  11. 2. Then mix in lemon and the crushed freeze dried strawberries.
  12. 3. You can begin to add 1 teaspoon of warm water to your mixture until its smooth and creamy – if you over add you can add more coconut butter.
  13. 4. Glaze donuts once they are completely cooled – once you’ve finished glazing pop them into the freezer so the glaze will firm up.
