Super moist mini lemon donuts

As we are in the midst of our third lockdown here in England , I find myself demotivated and don’t really know what to do with my days. Every morning I wake up tired, cause you don’t really rest properly when you laid in bed half a day, and think “what the HECK am I going to do all day?!” ….so I thought a little baking would cheer me up, and it did! The ingredients for this recipe will most likely be already in your house, that’s a plus right?

INGREDIENTS: (12donuts)

  • 90g egg whites (3 eggs)
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 60g olive oil
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 50g lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 125g flour
  • 8g baking powder


  • 100g icing sugar (sieved)
  • 2/3 tbsp lemon juice
  • Might add a tbsp of water

For this glaze you really need to test for yourself thick or runny you want it. Weather you want to dip your donuts like me or drizzle the glaze on top you might want to add a spoonful of extra water or stick to 2tbsp of lemon juice.

Let’s start by whipping egg whites and sugar to hard peak. Keep whisking and slowly add the oil, lemon zest and lemon juice. Lastly fold in the flour & BP with a spatula so to keep the mix fluffy and not loose the air we created by whipping the whites.

Pipe the mix into silicone moulds and bake for 10/12 mins at 180C fan

Let them cool on a rack before glazing. Hope this little recipe brightens up you day!
