strawberry donuts.

Ever since I have seen this post, my mouth has been watering and I have been determined to buy a normal size donut pan. We bought a really big carton of strawberries, and they were getting a little wrinkly faster than we could eat them. It was a sign that these donuts must be made!

1 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup almond milk
egg replace equivalent to one egg
1 tbsp melted earth balance
10  medium to large strawberries (between 1/2 and 3/4 cup depending on size), pureed with 2 tsp seedless strawberry jam
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
Glaze:
3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cups cold milk(I halved this and added about a tablespoon of the leftover strawberry mixture to this)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Grease a 6-doughnut pan with baking spray.  To make doughnuts combine dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together.  Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add in almond milk, egg replacer, melted earth balance, and maple syrup.  Stir until well combined.  Stir in strawberry mixture, starting with 1/2 of it and adding more only if needed.  Batter should be wet, but not runny.  Put dough into a pastry bag or plastic bag and snip approx 1-inch off end.  Pipe batter into each well, reserving extra batter.  Bake for 7-9 minutes until doughnuts spring back when touched.  Let cool five minutes and turn onto a cooling rack to cool completely.  Spray pan again and continue with the rest of batter until all doughnuts have been made.  While doughnuts are cooling make glaze.  To make glaze, stir all ingredients together until smooth.  When doughnuts are cooled dip each into glaze  and place back on cooling rack to let glaze set.  When glaze has set enjoy!
