Mini strawberry doughnuts

Mini doughnuts stuffed with whipped cream and strawberries and coated in sugar. They’re half the size of traditional doughnuts, but don’t worry, the whipped cream with strawberries fills you up ;). 

Ingredients for 21 mini doughnuts:

  • 420 g plain flour
  • 10 g dry yeast or 20 g fresh yeast
  • 75 g caster sugar
  • 75 g butter, melted and cooled
  • 170 ml milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • fresh zest from 1 orange
  • half a tsp salt

Sift the plain flour and mix with dry yeast (with fresh yeast, first make the leaven).

Add the rest of the ingredients and knead, adding melted butter at the end. Knead for a few minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic (even though the dough will be slightly sticky, try not to add any extra flour). I recommend using a mixer with a dough hook attachment or a bread machine. Form the dough into a ball and place it in a bowl previously sprinkled with flour. Cover and set aside in a warm place to double in volume (about 1.5 hrs).

After this time, place the dough on a floured surface and briefly knead. Tear off pieces of dough (about 40 g for one doughnut) and form balls from each part. Place on a kitchen towel sprinkled with flour. Cover the doughnuts and leave them in a warm place to double in volume (about 25 – 35 minutes, depending on the temperature). The doughnuts should have risen well but not be overgrown.

In a large pot, heat oil to 175ºC. Place doughnuts in the oil, a few at a time, and fry on both sides until golden brown. The temperature of the oil should not be too high; this is because the doughnuts will quickly brown from the outside, and inside, they will still be raw. Immediately after frying, place on kitchen roll to soak the excess oil. Whilst they are still warm, coat them in caster sugar.


  • 1/2 cup caster sugar to coat doughnuts
  • 300 ml whipping cream, chilled
  • 1 tsp icing sugar
  • a few Tbsp strawberry jam
  • 200 g strawberries, cut into pieces

In a bowl, beat the whipping cream with icing sugar. Cut the doughnuts along the middle to about 3/4 down the doughnut. Place the cream into a piping bag and fill the doughnut, remembering to leave space for a teaspoon of jam and the strawberries.

Making in a bread machine:

Place all the ingredients in the bread machine in the following order: liquids, dry ingredients, and dried yeast (or check your owner’s manual and use the order explicitly recommended for your machine). Choose the dough setting and press start. When the entire cycle is finished, remove the dough and follow the recipe above.
