Glazed Lemon Dinky Donuts…


Some recommended items from our kitchen to make this dish…

  • A donut machine is our preferred way to make these however you can bake them in the oven with a silicone mould if you prefer.
  • Silicone whisks in varying sizes, much prefer silicone to metal as it rusts.
  • Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
  • Mixing bowls are always wanted in this household and these stackable ones save so much space in our cupboards.

Glazed Lemon Dinky Donuts


  • 45g oatbran – HexB or 7.5 syns
  • Β½ tablespoon sweetener
  • ΒΌ teaspoon baking powder**
  • 1 egg
  • 25ml whole milk – Part HexA or 1.5 syns
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract

For the glaze:

  • 2 teaspoons icing sugar – 2 syns
  • 1 teaspoon cake sprinkles – 1 syn
  • Lemon juice
  1. Preheat your donut machine (or follow any instructions your machine provides).
  2. Add the dry ingredients to a bowl and give a quick mix.
  3. In a cup whisk the egg and lemon until pale and fluffy, add the milk and give a quick mix.
  4. Stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients until well combined.
  5. Leave to soak for a few minutes.
  6. Once the donut machine is heated add a few spoonfuls into each cavity and cook for 4-5 minutes (you may need to experiment here or follow instructions from your machine as they will all vary).
  7. Keep cooking your batter in batches being sure not to over fill to prevent leaking out the sides and wasted mixture.
  8. Once cooked allow them to cool slightly.
  9. Make a very runny icing mix using the icing sugar and lemon juice. Dip each donut into the icing sugar and sprinkle over the sprinkles on top.

Alternatively you can use a silicone donut mould and bake in the oven at 180 fan for around 20-25 minutes, you may need to keep an eye as this is just an estimate time as I have only ever done them in a machine.
