These lemon poppy seed donuts are everything they ought to be- light, containing just the right amount of lemon flavors, and absolutely delicious. Unlike some baked goods, they carried just the perfect amount of lemon flavor. All in all, it is a perfect dessert.
Another wonderful thing about this recipe is that the donuts bake up perfectly. They rise just the right amount and are the perfect density. It is not hard to replicate the beautiful donuts shown in the recipe’s photos.
Baked donuts are deceptively easy to make- like muffins, it’s a simple matter of preparing a batter and then filling the cavities of a pan with it. We recommend making the glaze slightly thick- doing so allows it to properly coat the donut without running right off of it, and it also makes for an easier dipping situation. For bakers new to donut making, having a flawless donut and easy dipping technique is essential, and this recipe delivers both.
