Lemon Glazed Baked Donuts with Coconut Frosting
Lemon Glazed Baked Donuts with Coconut Frosting are a sweet treat made with doughnuts that you bake instead of deep fry. This recipe does require that you have a special doughnut pan, but they are not expensive and available in many baking shops. If you like to bake, they are a great investment to make. This recipe calls for two toppings, a glaze and an icing. Toppings like this are really decadent. The first one, the glaze, is added when the cake is still warm, so it sinks in to the crust, giving it a wonderful flavor and texture. The second one is the icing that sits on top of the cake and adds to and complements the flavor. Be sure to try both, at least the first time you make this special treat. It is just a lot of fun to make something so entirely indulgent.
The icing uses coconut extract, but you could also add one-half cup of coconut to the icing (not the glaze) to give a real flavor bump in terms of the coconut. And it’s worth it. Coconut is a fabulous dessert flavor. And make your lemon zest homemade. Just grate the outermost skin of any lemon. Put the lemon in to a zip lock bag and in the fridge and use it up quickly.
Baked doughnuts are a great way to get these individual little cakes without the trouble (and really, the danger, too) of cooking with oil on your stove top. Today you can make this task of deep frying much easier and safer by using specifically designed counter top containers and deep fryers, but it is still a lot of easy to burn oil that many of us would prefer not to have around. So try this method, and see if you prefer your doughnuts baked, not fried.
