The fragrance of fresh lemon makes these doughnuts perfect for a coating of confectioner’s sugar or a light glaze plus a topping of toasted coconut.
I followed the recipe as written. The doughnuts were beautiful (don’t over-bake) and the texture was perfect. I used the zest from 2 lemons and good lemon extract. These doughnut have no flavor - they are blah. My family asked if I could fill the doughnuts with curd because they didn’t have any lemon taste. I glazed these with the vanilla glaze as suggested, I would suggest putting lemon zest in the glaze.
Very very good! Just made these and the chocolate variation while stuck at home during the coronavirus situation. I was skeptical the using only lemon zest would be lemon-y enough as I didn't have the optional lemon extract in my pantry. To my delight, there was a strong lemon flavor and fragrance. I had vanilla glaze leftover from the chocolate doughnut batch and added lemon juice to moisten it and give it some zip. Finished them with sprinkled poppyseeds. Delicious!
