These Mini Lemon Donuts come together quickly by using a cake mix and are topped with a delicious fresh strawberry glaze.
These donuts are not only simple and delicious but they are cute too! Everything is cuter when they are in a mini version right? 🙂 These lemon donuts are made with a lemon cake mix that helps this recipe come together quickly for the mornings that you just don’t have a lot of time. I made these donuts with my mini donut pan that I just love.
You can easily swap out the lemon cake mix for one of your other favorite flavors like I did with my mini pumpkin donuts. These mini lemon donuts are so fun for the kids and would make a great brunch item. How pretty would these be for a girls day brunch or even a mothers day brunch?! Top them with some sprinkles for an extra special touch for the kids.
- 1 box lemon cake mix
- 1 egg
- 1 cup water
- ¼ cup vegetable/ canola oil you can also substitute with coconut oil
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp milk
- 2 tsp. pureed strawberries
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a mini donut pan. In a large bowl, whisk together cake mix, egg, water, and oil until well combined. Transfer mixture to a large resealable bag or cake decorating bag. Squeeze the batter into the baking pan filling each donut hole ⅔ full. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges barely start to brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes. Allow donuts to cool completely before glazing them. To prepare the glaze whisk together all ingredients, adding more sugar or milk until desired consistency is met. Dip donuts into the glaze, allow to cool for a few minutes so the glaze will set. Dip them a second time if needed.
