Ways to Adjust Recipe to Make it Gluten Free

For those who have an intolerance to gluten, it is possible to adapt this recipe to meet dietary needs. By using gluten-free donuts, the recipe will remain intact in terms of flavor and texture. To ensure the donuts are completely gluten-free, double check ingredients lists to make sure other ingredients such as mascarpone and icing sugar are also gluten-free. Additionally, avoid any garnishes such as cake crumbs or croutons that can contain traces of gluten.

Making Strawberry Shortcake Donuts Vegan

The Strawberry Shortcake Donuts are easily adapted to make them vegan friendly. When switching the ingredients, swap the mascarpone for vegan cream cheese and use a vegan butter substitute in place of the traditional butter. The donuts can also be made without eggs by using a “flax egg,” which is a combination of ground flax seeds and water. This will help bind the dough without using any animal products. In lieu of the fresh strawberries, try using a vegan strawberry jam or applesauce to replicate the sweetness and tartness.


Strawberry Shortcake Donuts are a delicious and delightful dessert, perfect for any occasion. With the right adjustments, the recipe can be tailored to those consuming a gluten free or vegan diet. This recipe is an excellent way to end a meal in a fun and flavorful way!
