Start by making your mango puree, which is simple. Start by peeling your mango and cubing. Put mango in the a small sauce pot. Add sugar and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 3-5 minutes, until mango is tender, but not mushy. Place in food processor and pulse until smooth. Set aside to cool while you mix the rest of the batter for donuts. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prep your mini donut pans, this recipe makes 24 donuts. In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.In larger bowl, combine milk, egg, vanilla and sugar. Mix in mango puree. It should have made between ½- ¾ cup. Add dry ingredients and mix only until combined. Careful not to over mix. Pipe or spoon batter into mini donut pans.Bake for about 5 minutes. I always underbake just a touch. They can dry out quickly if you do. Once they are out of the oven, remove them from the pans as soon as possible. If not, they will sweat and get kind of soggy on the bottom. Allow to cool for 10 minutes or so.To make your strawberry glaze, first start with freeze dried strawberries. I bought mine at Target in the snack section. It's a 1 ounce package, I pulsed the whole package in the food processor. If you don't have a food processor, use your blender. Some people strain the strawberries at this point. I don't. I kind of like the small chunks. Mix the ⅓ cup strawberries with powdered sugar and enough milk to bring the glaze to the consistency you are looking for. Remember to only add small amounts of milk at a time, you don't want to make it too runny. Dip you donuts. I sprinkled mine with unsweetened coconut and it was a great addition.
