I’ve had a craving for lemon treats lately. Maybe it’s the dominance of so many other strong flavors—like chocolate, gingerbread, peppermint, and eggnog—at Christmas that has me craving the bright citrus taste of lemon. The other flavors are all good, of course, but lemon is sometimes just the flavor needed to “break up” the heavier flavors of other treats. And Linda of Free Range Cookies gives it to you with these Lemon Cake Donuts!
I love that she uses plain Greek yogurt and unsweetened applesauce in this baked donuts recipe. Those ingredients helps balance the inherent sweetness of the classic powdered sugar lemon glaze. “Time to make the donuts” will take on a whole new—and positive—meaning when the donuts you are making are these Lemon Cake Donuts!
