An old-fashioned donut topped with sweet strawberries and fresh whipped cream. A classic dessert made easier and extra enjoyable!


  • 6 old-fashioned donuts
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Whipped Cream:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar


  1. Pick up some old-fashioned donuts from your favorite donut shop or make them yourself!
  2. Mash about 6 of the strawberries into a thick paste with the back of a fork. Thinly slice the remaining strawberries. Gently stir together the mashed strawberries, sliced strawberries and 1 tablespoon sugar in a medium bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let set at room temperature or in the refrigerator until ready to serve or at least 20 minutes.
  3. To make the fresh whipped cream, place a glass or metal bowl along with the whisk or beaters in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Once bowl and whisk are cold, remove from freezer and place sugar and heavy whipping cream in the bowl. Beat just until the cream reaches soft peaks. Place in the refrigerator until ready to use. When ready to use, whisk again for about 15 seconds. Best if used within 24 hours.
  4. Place a donut on the serving plate, top with some strawberries and their juices and then some whipped cream. Dig in and enjoy!
