Weekend Love: Lemon Glazed Doughnuts

We all have memories of doughnuts – whether fresh from the bakery on a Sunday morning, or served right out of a box from the local Dunkin’ Donuts. 

But, the luckiest among us have tasted homemade doughnuts – those bundles of love with a crispier exterior, a fluffier interior and a warmth that assures you that everything is right with the world.

We know you've been making excuses for not making doughnuts yourself (we were right there with you until a few weeks ago, when we decided to take the plunge).

But, we're here to tell you that you shouldn't wait another moment.

Classic yeasted raised doughnuts aren't difficult at all to make. In fact, the most difficult aspect is probably waiting for them to rise.

And whether you have a deep fat fryer -- or just a deep pan with a good candy thermometer -- even the frying process easy as pie (or maybe easier).

These simple yeast doughnuts are enriched with the goodness of real butter – both in the dough and in the delightfully tart lemon glaze.

We were lucky enough to have a few Meyer lemons on hand for this recipe, so the glaze was sweet, tart and pleasantly floral.

But, don't stop with doughnuts!  There are more great recipes where this one came from! We created this dish as part of our work with the Go Bold with Butter blog, where you'll find an amazing collection of delicious recipes using real butter.
