Donuts, donuts, donuts!! We love donuts, we really do. And these have got to be healthy cause we used fresh lemons, right? Yes. These are good, they have a very nice firm crumb so are perfect for dunking in your coffee or tea. We also have a vegan version of this particular donut that we'll post later and it's just as good. At least we think so. For a twist, try using fresh limes instead of fresh lemons cause how good is a lime donut? Way good. Trust us. At any rate, start here >>>>

Baked Lemon Donuts

Ingredients 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 tea baking powder 1/4 tea baking soda 3/4 cup granulated sugar zest of 3 large lemons 1 egg, beaten 4 tablespoons butter, softened 1/2 cup sour cream 1/4 cup whole milk 1/4 tea vanilla extract 1/8 lemon extract Lemon Glaze 2 cups powdered sugar 1/4 cup hot milk 1 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and generously grease (or spray) your donut pan, set aside. In a large bowl whisk together baking powder, baking soda, sugar and lemon zest. In a mixer with paddle attachment mix together sugar, zest, egg, butter, sour cream, milk and vanilla and lemon extract. Mix until smooth. There will be pieces of butter, no worries. Make a well in the middle of dry ingredients, add wet ingredients to the center of the well and stir just until combined. Over mixing will make a tougher crumb. Either pipe or spoon into your donut pan to about 2/3 full. Bake about 10 minutes or until donuts spring back when touched. Let cool in pan for about 5 minutes. Prepare lemon glaze by combining all lemon glaze ingredients. Drizzle glaze over completely cooled donuts and let sit for awhile (good luck with that) until the glaze has hardened.
