Lemon Zest Donuts are wonderfully light, fresh, and take just 30 minutes without any guilt, making it the perfect morning recipe!

Ingredients for 20-25 units:

☛1 egg
☛50 gr sugar
☛40 ml milk
☛40 ml vegetable oil (plus oil for frying)
☛lemon zest
☛200 gr wheat flour
☛¹/₂ tsp baking powder


⏩Mix the egg with sugar, milk, oil, and lemon zest. Add the flour and baking powder and mix until combined.
⏩Heat the oil at medium-high heat. In the meantime put some oil in your hands and form small balls with the dough. Just before frying them, practice a whole in the center of the balls and put in the oil.
⏩Fry until getting a deep golden brown color. Strain and put on some kitchen paper to avoid the excess oil. Add eventually some cast sugar on top. Once they are cool, keep them in a can or a plastic bag.
