Meyer Lemon Curd Doughnuts

It is pretty crazy that at this time 2 weeks ago we had never made anything with Meyer lemons before. And today we are posting our 4th Meyer lemon recipe in a row. We got some great ideas from the comments of our previous post, so you may be seeing more Meyer lemon recipes soon! When an ingredient is only available for a limited time you really need to take advantage. Not to mention, Meyer lemons are super tasty!!

We knew that we wanted to make doughnuts with our leftover Meyer lemon curd. It was a miracle that the Meyer lemon curd lasted as long as it did without me eating it all! We have only ever made baked doughnuts and they are very cake-y. So, we did not think that filled doughnuts would work out very well. At the last minute we decided to go with a glaze. They turned out terrific! Let’s be honest though, when do cake-y doughnuts + lemon curd ever = anything but terrific? If you STILL somehow have not tried lemon curd, you need to do it NOW!  You will not regret it!

Here is what you'll need + the last minute additions of powdered sugar and 1/2 a lemon

Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy

Add the eggs one at a time

Add the vanilla

Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl

Add half of the dry ingredients to the mixer

Add the milk and then the rest of the dry ingredients

Fill the pans 2/3 full and bake

While the doughnuts are cooling combine the ingredients for the glaze

Dip the doughnuts in the glaze

Meyer lemon curd + doughnuts = Ah-mazing!
