Glazed Doughnut Strawberry Shortcake


Ingredient Checklist

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 glazed doughnuts, halved horizontally
  • 1 quart strawberries, hulled and sliced


Instructions Checklist

  • Step 1 Beat cream, sugar, and vanilla extract together in a chilled glass or metal bowl with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • Step 2 Place the bottom half of one doughnut on a plate. Spoon 1/4 cup whipped cream onto the doughnut, arrange 1/4 of the sliced strawberries over the whipped cream, and then spoon another 1/4 cup whipped cream over the strawberries. Top with remaining doughnut half. Repeat with remaining doughnuts, cream, and strawberries.

Cook’s Note:

We chose not to sweeten the strawberries since the doughnut is sweeter than a traditional shortcake biscuit. However, if you’d like, you can add 1 tablespoon of sugar to the sliced strawberries.


You can also use doughnut holes and create a layered dessert in a glass jar. Slice the doughnut holes into halves for the layers.
