Ingredients

Donuts

  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Raspberry Glaze

  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries (thawed)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoon water
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Lightly spray two 6-count donut pans. Preheat oven to 350F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk melted butter, sugar, egg, sour cream, lemon juice, and zest until smooth. Fold in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until batter is just combined.
  • Scrape batter into a ziplock bag (or pastry bag) and pipe in an even circle in donut pan cavities.
  • Bake donuts at 350F 15-20 minutes until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Cool donuts in pan 20 minutes, then gently run a knife around edges and invert onto a cooling rack.

Raspberry Glaze

  • Place raspberries, lemon juice, and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a low simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until raspberries begin to break down and thicken.
  • Strain raspberry sauce, discarding solids. Place raspberry juice in a small bowl and whisk powdered sugar into juice until smooth.
  • Drizzle glaze over donuts and let stand 5 minutes to set. Enjoy!
