After a lifetime of never daring to make a doughnut recipe, I’ve now made TWO in the same week! I couldn’t resist, since they’re super easy to make and the flavor combinations are pretty much limitless. These Strawberry Lemonade Doughnuts are a great start to the day – or enjoy them for a snack or dessert later!

I wanted to switch things up a bit from the Multigrain Chocolate Doughnuts I shared before, and decided that summer called for something ‘bright and fresh’. What’s one flavor that goes perfectly with that? Strawberry lemonade, of course – so I decided to give it a try. The result was not only fresh in flavor, but a wonderful pick-me-up type taste. So delicious – and still as easy to make as ever using Nestle Gerber Lil’ Bits Oatmeal Banana Strawberry Cereal from Walmart.


  • 1 1/3 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Nestle Gerber Lil’ Bits Oatmeal Banana Strawberry Cereal
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 3/4 tsp. Salt
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
  • 3 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 tbsp. Lemon Juice

  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Spray two doughnut pans, set aside.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together until well-combined. Pour into the prepared doughnut pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Strawberry Lemonade Glaze

  • 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • Dash Salt
  • 1/2-2 tbsp. Milk
  • 1 tbsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1-2 drops Red Food Coloring, if desired

Whisk all ingredients until smooth and creamy – drizzle over doughnuts.

I still can’t believe how much strawberry flavor comes in that Gerber Cereal – it makes these doughnuts PERFECT! The texture is soft and moist, and once the drizzle sets it’s like a perfect balance. I think I do prefer the Multigrain Chocolate Doughnuts best – but it’s chocolate so OF COURSE! These strawberry lemonade doughnuts are a very close second, though, and go just great with a nice summer morning.
