  • 1 cup warm milk (105°F to 115°F)
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Vegetable oil for frying

For the Cheesecake Filling:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

For the Strawberry Glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, sliced



Make the Dough:

In a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine the warm milk, yeast, and granulated sugar. Let sit for 5 minutes, or until the yeast becomes foamy and active.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and melted butter. Add the wet ingredients to the yeast mixture and stir to combine.

In another bowl, whisk together 3 1/2 cups of flour and the salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms.

Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 5-7 minutes, or until smooth and elastic. Add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, if the dough is too sticky.

Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours, or until doubled in size.

Make the Cheesecake Filling:

In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer or electric mixer, cream together the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and pinch of salt until smooth and creamy.
Assemble and Fry the Donuts:

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out donut shapes using a donut cutter or a round cookie cutter with a small hole in the center.

Fill a pot or Dutch oven with enough vegetable oil to come up to about 2-3 inches deep. Heat the oil over medium heat to 350°F (175°C).

Gently place a few donuts at a time into the hot oil. Fry for 1-2 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Remove the donuts from the oil and drain on paper towels.

While the donuts are still warm, use a piping bag or a spoon to fill each donut with the prepared cheesecake filling.

Make the Strawberry Glaze (Optional):

In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until a smooth glaze forms. Adjust the consistency by adding more milk if the glaze is too thick, or more powdered sugar if it’s too thin.

Dip the tops of the filled donuts into the strawberry glaze, letting any excess drip off.

Top the glazed donuts with fresh sliced strawberries.

e fluffy, light donuts encase a rich, creamy filling bursting with fresh strawberry flavor, creating a delightful contrast of textures and tastes.

Each bite offers a harmonious blend of the slightly tangy cream cheese, the sweetness of the strawberries, and the light, airy donut. The granulated sugar coating adds a satisfying crunch, making these donuts a sensory delight.
