Strawberry Buttermilk Doughtnuts

When I think of spring, i think of pastel colors and strawberries... yes strawberries! They are popping up everywhere in groceries store since spring is the season where strawberries grow. These pretty pink fluffy doughnuts were the perfect dessert to make for a Sunday morning "spring time edition"

The best part about this recipe? It only takes half an hour to make! Yes half an hour! The ingredients in this recipe are simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen, minus the strawberries. 

Now, with strawberry season in full swing, i decided to scroll through pinterest to find the perfect strawberry doughnut recipe. I used Happy Food Dance's strawberry buttermilk doughnut. I really can't tell you enough how easy this recipe was to follow. 

These strawberry buttermilk doughnuts were such a hit this morning's breakfast! They are so moist and fluffy, you really can't help to grab another one.

These strawberry buttermilk doughnuts are way more healthier than grabbing doughnuts at your local Krispy Kreme and way more tastier... they're so good!
