Directions

  1. Place the strawberries in a mixing bowl with the sugar and lemon zest. Combine well. Place in the refrigerator until serving.
  2. In a stand mixer, combine the ricotta cheese, the cream, the cream cheese and whip on high until the mixture is thoroughly combined and fluffed up, about 5 to 6 minutes.
  3. Add in the powdered sugar and the vanilla and whip again for another minute until thoroughly combined.
  4. Place in the refrigerator.
  5. Horizontally slice each doughnut (like a hamburger bun) before grilling.
  6. Because of their sugar content, doughnuts like to burn while grilling, so you have to watch them closely. Place the doughnuts (inside down) on the grill for no more than 1 minute, then flip and grill the glazed side for about 30 seconds. Keep an eye on them—you want them lightly grilled and not too dark.
  7. To assemble: On the bottom half of each doughnut, place a super-generous dollop of the cream cheese mixture, along with a generous portion of strawberries. Top with the top half of the doughnut and serve.
