  • 10 tbsp unsalted buter at room temp
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 4 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup strawberry preserves
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 tbsp milk

For The Buttercream Frosting

  • 1 cup butter at room temp
  • 4 cups powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/4 cup strawberry preserves
  • 1 drop red food coloring optional

For The Donut Glaze

  • 2 cups powdered sugar sifted
  • 6-8 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 drop red food coloring


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a donut pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  • Beat the butter and both sugars together until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat until well combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl each time.
  • Whisk the flour and baking powder together and gradually add to the batter.
  • Add the preserves, vanilla and milk and beat until well mixed and smooth.
  • Using a large piping bag, pipe the batter into each space in the donut pan level with the surface.
  • Bake in the oven for 12-13 minutes and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Repeat until all of the batter has been used.
  • Once the donuts are cool, make the glaze by mixing the powdered sugar, milk, vanilla and red food coloring in a microwave safe bowl. Prepare your sprinkles on plate ready to dip your glazed donuts into.
  • Mix well until smooth and then heat in the microwave for 10 seconds at a tie until the glaze is pourable but not too runny. Dip the donuts into the sprinkles and let set while you make the buttercream.
  • Beat the butter and half of the powdered sugar until smooth. Add the remaining powdered sugar and beat slowly at first then on high speed for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the vanilla, milk, preserves and coloring and mix well.
  • Pipe a large swirl of the buttercream in the middle of the donut and decorate with more sprinkles and mini marshmallows.
  • Serve at once or keep covered at room temperature. These donuts are best eaten on the day they are made.
