Lemon Basil Donuts Zoom

Lemon Basil Donuts Recipe

Meyer lemons are slightly sweeter than regular lemons, and have almost an orange-like note, and these soft, cakey doughnuts capture that true essence. The doughnuts are ensconced in a thin glaze with the faint whisper of fresh, herbal basil. It's a refreshing combination, perfect with a cup of tea.
