 Lemon donuts!!!!!!  Light, refreshing, just the right amount of lemon-not too much so as to give you a permanent pucker but enough to let you taste the lemon, moist and oh so yummy!!!!!!! 

 This week we left the chocolate behind, not really sure what was up with that decision since I am usually all about chocolate but sometimes change is good.  

Maybe it was the warm weather and sunshine that made me crave something light and sunny but whatever it was I decided that this was the week to say yes to a little lemon in a baked good.  Tossed with a little powdered sugar these are an excellent start to a sweet morning 

The powdered sugar absorbs quickly into the moist donuts so if you make them ahead of time (I like them best cold) you might have to toss them in the powdered sugar again.

Spray a doughnut pan with cooking spray.

Mix together all dry ingredients: flour, salt, baking powder, sugar.
Combine wet ingredients: melted butter, eggs, yogurt, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, mix.

Spoon (I find it easier to spoon the dough) or pipe batter into pan.
Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Remove from pan and let cool a few minutes on wire rack.

Place confectioner sugar in a brown lunch bag. Add donuts 1 at a time and toss to coat with sugar.

  1. You have me at the ingredients-yogurt and lemons-yum! Both of those insure that these donuts have great flavor as well as great texture. Definitely saving this one-just got a donut pan!

  2. Those looks delish! I have always wanted to make doughnuts! One of these days I will have give it a try, especially after seeing these! I sent you a little buzz! Have a wonderful week!

  3. Lemon + Donuts = best. idea. ever. It was like 60 degrees here too the other day and I totally know what you mean by wanting something "sunny" to bake. These look awesome and I am definitely going to try them out in my new donut pan 😀
