Strawberry Cake Mix Doughnuts {Yellow Butter Cake Mix + Strawberry Greek Yogurt = Strawberry Cake Doughnuts!}

Strawberry Cake Mix Doughnuts, easy, quick cake doughnuts you whole family will love.  Yes, using a cake mix,  Greek yogurt and diced strawberries to make these little breakfast jewels.


The Summer heat is fast approaching us.  We have already started having 90 degree temperatures.  

When I was growing up, we didn't have air conditioning, just water coolers. Who remembers those days?  You would have had to have grown up in the 50 and 60's.  I remember if Mother was going to use the oven she would cook her dishes early in the day as to not heat up the house too much.  I still think of those days today when I want to bake something.  I like to bake in the morning and grill in the evening.


Strawberry Cake Doughnuts are the perfect thing to make early in the day for breakfast.  The recipe is simple and calls for few ingredients.  One yellow butter cake mix, strawberry greek yogurt, eggs, and butter.  How easy is that?  I love recipes with few ingredients and little time to bake, makes for a quick delivery on yumminess!

I even like to make these plain to use in a Strawberry Shortcake Dessert.  They remind me of the mini sponge cakes I use to buy back in the day---Another recipe for another day. Hope you will get to make some of these doughnuts soon.  Enjoy!

  12. These look sooo good. I'll make them as soon as I come up with a donut baking pan.I adore cake donuts...especially strawberry. :)
    And,, yes, I so remember water coolers...in fact, I go back further than you...I remember, in the 40's, living in Dallas, texas, Mother would buy an extra block of ice from THE ICE MAN, put it in a large pan and sit the little fan behind it...we would stay there, cooling off, until all the ice melted and the water became warm. So many memories from that stage of my life...:)

  16. Kay, these look so good, and I LOVE that they start with a cake mix!! Handy! Yes, I definitely grew up with water coolers (AKA swamp coolers!), but it was out in WEST Texas where the dry air made them very effective. :) Thanks for sharing these donuts with us at Treasure Box Tuesday- pinning!
