Strawberry Pancake Mini Donuts

Pretty, pink, and perfect for breakfast or dessert

Pretty in pink and with a lovely strawberry flavor, these light doughnuts use a pancake batter for extra fluffiness. A milky cream cheese glaze helps catapult this breakfast dish to sweet, sweet heaven.

This recipe is courtesy of Krusteaz.


For the cream cheese glaze:

  • 4 Ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 Cup powdered sugar
  • 5 Tablespoons milk

For the Strawberry Pancakes:

  • 2 Cups pancake mix, preferably Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix
  • 1 1/3 Cup cold water
  • 2 Tablespoons strawberry extract
  • Pink food coloring


For the cream cheese glaze:

In a small mixing bowl, beat or whisk cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth.

Add in milk 1 tablespoon at a time and beat until it is the consistency of a thick glaze.

Cover and set aside.

For the Strawberry Pancakes:

Heat pancake griddle maker until ready; or if using donut pan, oven to 350 degrees F.

Stir pancake mix, cold water, and strawberry extract together with a wire whisk.

Stir in a few drops of pink coloring and let batter sit for 2 minutes.

Fill pancake griddle or donut cavities with batter and bake 5–6 minutes. Tip: use a 1/4 cup and small spatula to pour mix into cavities.

Gently remove from donut maker or pan.

Once cooled, dip in cream cheese glaze and serve.
