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!
