Baked Strawberry-Ginger Glazed Doughnuts

by Erin

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?

I like spices more, honestly, but I also like ginger and tarragon.

Bethany, they have all kinds of spices including basil, oregano, and pretty much every other that I use on a regular basis.

OHHHHHH! Herbs! I love cilantro in salsa!

I use basil a lot. I do not care for cilantro or parsley, so I always sub basil. It is a tasty substitute in guacamole.

My favorite herb to cook with is basil. I like to sprinkle it on the top of recipes.
