Krispy Kreme Strawberries

I had an ambitious morning in the kitchen and decided to make Krispy Kremes wrapped around strawberries. Thanks to a really easy batter recipe by the 99 Cent Chef, it was a great success. The doughnuts were light and fluffy and, in my opinion, even better than real Krispy Kremes. The strawberry inside was just soft and really juicy. With the glaze, it was like eating strawberries and cream.

For the batter and Krispy Kreme glaze, check out the recipes here.

To make a Krispy Kreme strawberry, you'll need:
Strawberries (just ripe)
Wooden skewers

Poke skewers into the tops of the strawberries. Place on a plate and freeze for one hour. Wrap thin semi-circle layers of doughnut dough around the strawberries. Rest for 10 minutes (the strawberries will cool the dough).

When the oil is hot enough, dip the strawberry into the oil so that it covers half the dough. Cooking the bottom first ensures that the doughnut sticks to the strawberry. Turn the strawberry on its side and carefully cook the top, turning the skewer slowly.

Dry on paper towels and glaze.

If you're impatient, like me, you can fry the rest of the batter in globs and roll in sugar for a classic doughnut hole.


  1. Nice fruity twist...I may have to borrow your recipe of my recipe!

  2. you got me at krispy kreme strawberries - it looks super good and anything better than KK is definitely on my to-try list!

  3. I'm lazy and reckon I'd just serve a pile of little donut holes alongside a plate of strawberries! =p
