Want to impress your guests with homemade doughnuts? Look no farther than this recipe, which is easy to prepare and takes less than 20 minutes to bake. The zesty lemon and fruity strawberry flavors make these a perfect summer treat, especially because the fruit will be extra-fresh and in-season. Another good reason to use fresh berries? The frozen kind will give off a lot of liquid and could cause your dessert to turn out mushy.
