I have become quite a donut maker over the last year or so. Even though I probably hadn’t made donuts in years before that. Baked Strawberry Cake Donuts are the easiest ones I’ve ever made. In this case I turned a cake mix into donuts. I usually like to bake from scratch but every once in awhile I like to play around with store-bought ingredients. Obviously,  everyone does not have the time to bake something from scratch. If you want to bake a donut from scratch, check out Baked Orange Chocolate Chip Donuts.  I did add some fresh strawberries to the  mix to add some additional nutrition to the donut and amp up that luscious strawberry flavor.

I first made these last year around Valentine’s Day.  We happened to take them with us when we went to visit my husband’s godmother in the North Carolina mountains.  They traveled so well.  That is one of our favorite trips to take.  The North Carolina mountains are glorious.  It’s quiet, beautiful and so peaceful.  We were lucky enough to have some snow too.  We rarely get snow in Georgia so our little one was thrilled.  Ok, the big ones were thrilled too.  Even our dog was so happy in the snow, jumping and eating the falling snow.  It was the kind of day that provides memories for years to come.

Every year we hope for snow. The first two years we lived in Georgia it snowed. We were so happy. If you live up north, you are probably groaning over my happiness for snow. It has been a hard winter for you all. When you live in Florida for 20 years, you are happy for a change of season, and yes, even a little snow. Florida is like perpetual summer, hot, hotter and hottest. I love the change of season here. I love seeing the leaves change and fall off the trees in Autumn.

In winter, we look forward to fires in the fireplace and hoping and praying for a little snow. In the Spring, I love all the blossoms on the trees. (I hate what it does to my allergies, holy cow!) Then it’s summer. In the Summer, I love … not much. It’s too hot. That is what happens when you are in your 40’s. Ok, summer vacation and more time with my little one. That is something to look forward to in the Summer. Oh summer vegetable too, I love summer vegetables.

Now that I feel happy with myself for turning a negative into a positive (I tend to be a “glass half empty” girl), let’s get back to these yummy donuts. Make sure when you bake them, that you have other people in the house with you that will stop you from eating them all. They are light as air and it is so easy to eat a few. Luckily my little one had her cousin here for the weekend when I recently made them again.  They happily helped me devour quite a few. I sent the rest home with her cousin, too. Let someone else feel the pressure of trying not to eat all of these. Another good tip, freeze them. At least you will have to wait for them to defrost before eating another one. You may have gained your sanity back by then.
