Author Katie



  • 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.
