Japan is filled with beautiful cafes. Wandering around the streets of Japan, there is no way that you’d be able to avoid being lured into at least one to try some treats! Right now, there are new seasonal menus popping up and I just want to try them all. I was inspired by these menus and seasonal ingredients to bake my own mini Strawberry Donuts.
The high glutinous rice flour content in the all purpose flour that I used is what gave these donuts their mochi-like texture that I absolutely love! These donuts are moist and chewy. The fresh strawberry puree brings such a bright flavour that I am just loving them for the changing season. Plus the pink color from the fresh strawberry puree makes them so pretty!
Now, as much I really wish I could just be sitting in a beautiful cafe in Tokyo right now, these donuts help to bring some of that japanese cafe and spring vibes home! Go ahead and dip them in melted white chocolate or a simple sugar glaze for an extra punch of flavour and to make them look extra pretty!
These donuts are best eaten fresh, just after they have cooled and the glaze has set. I must say though, these donuts freeze really well, so if you dont think you’ll finish them all within a few days (unlikely, but still), then you can absolutely toss them into the freezer to enjoy another day. Pop them into the microwave for a quick warm up or eat them frozen for a cool strawberry treat. If you’re eating them frozen, I suggest letting them thaw for about 5-10 minutes before you eat them, less brain freeze and better texture that way!
