I hope you are enjoying Spring Sweets Week as much as I am! I kicked things off with Blood Orange Shortbread Cookies and for my second recipe I'm sharing Lemon Funfetti Baked Donuts.
This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product from sponsor companies to help in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
I just love any excuse to break out the donut pans and as soon
as I saw the festive and colorful sprinkles that Sweets and Treats sent I
knew immediately that I wanted to do a "funfetti" style donut. The sprinkles I used are called Basket Case, a naturally colored pastel mix.
I used Taylor and Colledge Lemon Extract Paste in the batter. One teaspoon of it is the same as using the zest from a whole lemon! I love the paste because you use far less than traditional liquid extract.
For the glaze I mixed together Dixie Crystals powdered sugar with Taylor & Colledge Vanilla Bean Paste, along with some milk. Everyone in my house likes varying layers of glaze, so some got a heavy dip while others got lighter ones.
If you are adding additional sprinkles on top of the glaze you want to dip a few, put the sprinkles on and repeat so that the glaze doesn't set up on you and the sprinkles just roll off.
It's like eating sunshine in donut form. Bright beautiful lemon flavor in the donut itself, the classic vanilla bean glaze, and of course, loads of delicious sprinkles!
