Baked Raspberry Glazed Lemon Donuts
I might be holding onto the warm weather a little bit… these raspberry glazed lemon donuts definitely make me think of spring/summer! Savor the last little bit of the warm months before the fall truly sets in, and enjoy these easy peasy baked donuts! This recipe is perfect for a treat yourself kind of breakfast, an addition to brunch, or maybe a mid-afternoon snack.
The donuts themselves are light and lemony. Adding the raspberry glaze really pulls together the flavors of summer! I garnished my donuts with some crushed freeze dried raspberries and lemon zest to give a little more texture (but mostly just because it looks really fancy).
While donuts are typically deep fried, these raspberry glazed lemon donuts are baked. I won’t go as far as saying they’re healthy (though they have fruit in them?? so they are, right??) but they are a little lighter than a traditional donut fried in grease. This baked raspberry glazed lemon donut recipe actually doesn’t call for any oil, and very little butter! The most oil/grease/fat you’ll get is from coating the pan so the donuts don’t get stuck.
Don’t worry though, this recipe still yields a delicious donut that your family and friends will ask for again and again (at least mine do)! I made 2 pans of donuts while recipe testing a photographing them, and they didn’t last long after I got my photos done!
If you make a batch, I’d love to see how they turn out! Send me a quick snap or tag me on instagram @theautumnleann 🙂
