What a breath of fresh air these fabulous donuts are! Yessiree, Glazed Lemon Poppyseed Donuts are terrific. If you enjoy lemon these donuts are for you! These have lemon juice and lemon zest in the donut as well as the icing. Plus of course, there are lots of poppyseeds which add delectable flavor as well.
Back in late November I decided to polish off my donut pans. I wanted to make homemade donuts for my grandkids when they were here for their uncle’s wedding. After making Glazed Blueberry Donuts I kind of got on a roll. I wanted to make donuts for John’s office so I made double batches of six different kinds. Blueberry, Pumpkin, Cherry, Orange, Raspberry and Lemon Poppyseed. All were lovely and very well received.
John found a couple of 20-cavity donut pans at H-E-B in Waxahachie, so we were off to the races. Since then I’ve purchased several more of those 20-cavity donut pans. That way I can bake a lot at a time without having to stop and wash dishes in between every batch. Two six-cavity donut pans were just NOT enough.
I have to admit, for someone who was “freaked out” by the thought of making donuts, I really enjoy baking them now. Granted, baked donuts are heavier and more cake like than donuts you fry in oil. They are not super light like Crispy Creme or Dunkin’ Donuts. But they are still wonderfully delicious. And, oh, so satisfying.
Do you like to spring new breakfast recipes on your family for weekend breakfasts? Then give Glazed Lemon Poppyseed Donuts a try. But don’t say I didn’t warn you. They will probably ask you to make these donuts over and over again. Yes, donuts are my favorite comfort food. Give me another. 🙂
I thought Glazed Lemon Poppyseed Donuts turned out fantastic!
Glazed Lemon Poppyseed Donuts are so delectable.
Every bite will have you drooling. 🙂
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the donuts, but I did not end up using the vanilla.
Place UNBLEACHED flour in a mixing bowl. (Bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Stir ingredients together to combine. Set aside.
In another mixing bowl place sour cream, eggs and milk. Whisk to combine.
Add melted butter and canola oil.
Add lemon juice, lemon zest and poppyseeds.
Whisk ingredients to combine.
Pour liquid mixture into dry mixture.
Stir until just combined.
Spoon donut mixture into a zip lock bag. Cut off the tip of one corner.
Spray donut cavities with cooking spray. Pipe donut mixture into each cavity about 3/4 full. Bake at 425 for about 10 minutes or until donuts are set. Remove from oven and place on cooling rack.
I used these ingredients for the glaze.
Whisk powdered sugar, milk and lemon juice.
Dip baked donuts into glaze.
Invert donuts and place on cooling rack. Immediately sprinkle with lemon zest. Allow icing to set about 10 minutes before serving.
Serve donuts to your very happy breakfast crew.
Better make sure you make enough for everyone to have seconds!
Glazed Lemon Poppyseed Donuts are so mouthwatering.
