Baked Strawberry-Ginger Glazed Doughnuts

You don’t need a vat of oil to make doughnuts at home. These baked strawberry-ginger glazed doughnuts are just as good as their fried cousins.

I know that I’m late to the party for National Doughnut Day but these babies were worth the wait. I adore blueberry glazed doughnuts so after picking several pounds of strawberries when my mom and step dad came to visit it just seemed like the logical next step. Granted, I first made a batch of homemade strawberry syrup but that was just with the ugly ones.

To sweeten the deal I added some ginger which added just a little zing to the sweetness. You too can get your hands on some ginger and a slew of other herbs by entering my giveaway for a package of Gourmet Garden! This is actually a belated giveaway that was supposed to be paired up with #FreshTastyValentines but slipped through the cracks. Valentine’s Day in June anyone?
