These luscious Gluten Free Baked Lemon Doughnuts are lighter than air and ready to eat in minutes. It really doesn’t get much better than that.
If you live somewhere that has snow on the ground for nearly 6 months of the year, you’ll understand this.
You start to get a little antsy, a little fidgety, and a little impatient when signs of spring start to appear. I’m alright with snow, especially in December. I can’t imagine a Christmas without snow.
I can bear it for January, and even February. But, when the sun (when it’s shining) is starting to feel warm, and the roads get slushy from the melting snow – I’m ready for it to be over with. Done! Pack it in, pack it up, and move on.
Unfortunately, Mother Nature doesn’t listen to me nor anyone else that is living through a never-ending winter right now. So, you have to do what you can to make it another week, hoping for the sunshine to grace your doorstep, and melt the ice that has accumulated there over the past few months.
Thankfully, when our faces are (literally) frozen in a permanent “grin and bear it” appearance from January through March, the citrus fruits are at their best. Oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and limes are like an artificial sun to us. There is something so clean, crisp, and “sunny” when you smell citrus fruit, even if it is still snowing outside, and you’re still having to dig your way out time and again.
So, the other day while the snow was falling and being blown by the wind, I was making my own sunshine inside with these gluten free Baked Lemon Doughnuts. When I bit into one, I couldn’t believe how good it was. These gluten free doughnuts carry some serious lemon flavour. The perfect pick-me-up on a “will-winter-ever-end?” March day. 🙂
I guess you could bake these doughnuts in a muffin pan, but then you wouldn’t have doughnuts. You’ll want to invest in a doughnut pan. Trust me. I’ve got a lot of baked doughnut recipes besides these gluten free Lemon Baked Doughnuts. It’ll be a good investment. I don’t bake doughnuts nearly enough, I forget how easy they really are to make, and how fast you can have a bakery-worthy treat at home.
