I'm a huge fan of citrus especially in a dessert form. These lemon donuts are light and fluffy and are covered with a lemon glaze that will completely satisfy any citrus craving.
I'm loving this donut pan. It makes baking donuts so much easier and in my mind makes the donuts semi healthier, right? Okay, probably not.
I've found that by putting the dough in a pastry bag like this, will make it easier to divide the dough in the pan.
Baked Lemon Donuts
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powcer
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 oz. container lemon Greek yogurt
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup milk
zest of one lemon
1 cup confectioners sugar
juice of one lemon
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease donut pan with cooking spray.
In medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together egg, yogurt, oil milk and lemon zest. Add to dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
Divide batter evenly into donut cups, filling each cup about half full. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool donuts on a cooling rack for a few minutes. While cooling make the glaze.
Whisk together the confectioners sugar and lemon juice until it's a thin glaze. Drizzle glaze on donuts.
Yield: 12 donuts
