Tessa's Recipe Rundown...
Taste: Ultra bright and fresh, perfect for spring!
Texture: The donuts are soft and light while the glaze is thick and rich.
Ease: Super easy 30 minute dessert recipe.
Appearance: I just love the cracked appearance of the glaze once it sets and that you can see little specks of fresh lemon zest.
Pros: Fresh and fun, much easier and less indulgent than fried donuts.
Would I make this again? Absolutely.
You guys know my obsession with donuts is strong. Some of my most popular posts have been donut recipes, so I know the obsession is mutual. It seemed only right to share a bright and fresh spring donut recipe with you in the form of these Baked Donuts with Lemon Glaze. They’re a million times quicker and easier than fried donuts and while the texture isn’t exactly the same as fried, they’re positively addicting. Not only are these baked, but they’re made mostly with yogurt instead of tons of oil or butter making them even lighter! Perfect for all the shorts, tanks, and bikinis spring and summer require.
