We are finally coming out of the rainy season, and I’m looking out to a gorgeous, green, and sunny scene from my window.

This is worth celebrating!

I recommend starting this kind of day with a treat that tastes as fresh and summery as the weather feels: strawberry donuts!

These are baked, so they’re super-simple to make.

I hope you have a donut pan! They’re relatively cheap and easy to find, and they turn out perfect donuts every time. Here’s an affiliate link to the kind I have.

If you really don’t want to use a donut pan, you can also bake these as muffins. Just keep an eye on the bake time because it might be slightly different.

These strawberry donuts are made with sour cream, so they’re soft and tender. And they have fresh strawberries running all throughout. Plus a tangy, sweet strawberry glaze that’s so pretty and pink!
