Baked donuts are a favorite around here (b/c I am a mean mama and deprive my children of the store-bought trans-fat laden versions). When they get there first bite of a freshly baked, warm Krispy Kreme, I will most likely lose the “my mom is so awesome she makes us great donuts” status.
Meyer Lemon Baked Donuts adapted from
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup sugar substitute (I used )
2 tbsp butter, melted
¾ cup low fat plain yogurt
6 Tbsp meyer lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a doughnut pan with cooking spray.
In a separate bowl, mix the melted butter, eggs, yogurt, lemon juice, and vanilla extract.
Add wet ingredients to the dry and mix to combine.
Fill the donut pan 2/3 full of batter. (I just use a spoon, but some people prefer to pipe it in.)
Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Remove from pan and let cool on wire rack.
Top donuts as desired.
Well, enjoy these bright, sunny donuts during this COLD, dreary day! Yes, I bragged too soon about our awesome weather….I actually saw a few snow flakes yesterday, with more in the forecast today!

I am pretty much obsessed with meyers lately. And these pretty much look like the most perfect way to wake up. Ever.
Oh.my.yum…these look delish!! Thanks for stopping by my blog today 🙂 New follower here! Not sure if you saw when you stopped by, but I just started a new link party on Tuesday, and I'd love for you to link these up for all my readers, as well as any other recipes you'd like to share in the weeks to come!
Now I need a donut pan! And I thought I owned Every pan. These look delicious. I do love anything lemom.
Oh yes! You definitely *need* a donut pan 😉 I can put pretty much anything in that pan, and my kids will like it!
Kim, how did you like the tagalose? I got a sample but haven't had a chance to play around with it yet. They really look delicious though! I wish I could find meyer lemons in my area….patience…lol
Oh my…I had so many I had to juice them and freeze it! Sam's Club had big containers for a dollar one day and I bought an abnormal amount. I just love them! I have only used the Tagatose in small quantities so far, and no problems or aftertaste noted. I also used some with blueberries to make a sauce one day, and it definitely thickens like sugar!
OMG…I'm in love with this recipe! Got to dust off the doughnut pan!
I love Meyer Lemon everything. I'm so thankful that I don't have a donut pan. These look amazing. 🙂
Thanks! Good to know about the tagatose! Oh my, that's a lot of lemons! lol I still haven't even seen them at any of the big discount stores up here yet, last year, I found them at walmart of all places! I'll be on the lookout though, I'm with you, I love them!
Lord my dear your killing me, those look fab! I love the lemon's in the pictures, perfect!
These sound SO good! I've only used my doughnut pan once so far (and honestly, it was a disaster lol) so I will have to give it another try. I just wish I hadn't left my little potted Meyer Lemon tree in Texas when I moved!
