The Freshman Cook: 2022

Please Rate this Recipe

This is the last day of Lemon Week. It has been such a fun making and sharing lemon recipes and checking out what everyone else cooked. All the recipes were so impressive and mouthwatering! I can’t wait to try them!

My last recipe for the week ~ Lemon Donuts! These tasty donuts have lemon in the recipe, a           vanilla glaze, and a lemon curd in the middle of the doughnut. Full of fresh lemon yumminess,

 these doughnuts can be made the day before you want to serve them. Make this recipe easy by cooking the lemon curd first and refrigerate it, once it cooled down.

Cook the doughnuts the next day and store them in an air free container in the fridge, until you are ready to finish the doughnuts.

When you are ready to put your recipe together start by making the vanilla glaze, then set it aside.

These lemon doughnuts come together nicely, and they are fun to eat!

 Lemon Doughnuts

( makes 6 doughnuts)

(printable recipe at end of page)

Lemon Curd

3 Large Eggs at room temperature

Grated Rind and Juice of 2 Large Lemons

1/2 cup Salted Butter at room temperature

1 cup Superfine Sugar

Doughnuts

2 cups Flour

3/4 cup Sugar

2 teaspoons Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Salt

1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda

2 large Eggs, room temperature

3/4 cup Buttermilk

2 tablespoons unsalted Butter, melted and cooled a bit

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Zest of 1 Lemon

Vanilla Glaze

1/2 cup Powdered Sugar

1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract

3 teaspoon Water

To make the curd, beat the eggs lightly in a medium bowl. Mix in the lemon rind, juice,

butter and sugar.  Place the bowl over

a pan of hot water and heat gently. Stir until the sugar dissolves and the curd becomes thick. Pour the curd into a bowl with a lid and set aside.


In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, buttermilk, butter, vanilla, and lemon zest.
Pour the liquid mix into the flour and stir together. 

Spray the donut pan with La Tourangelle All Purpose Baking Spray. 


Pipe the batter into the donut pan. Bake 12-12 minutes. Remove from oven when done and let the doughnuts cool for 5 minutes.
Mix together the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and water in a small bowl to make the vanilla glaze. Drizzle the glaze over the donuts and onto the plate. 
Add the lemon curd to the inside of the doughnuts. Enjoy!
