For the donuts

  • 175 g Caster sugar
  • 30 ml Vegetable oil
  • 175 ml Milk (cow’s or plant milk)
  • 2 Eggs large
  • 2 Lemons zest only
  • 225 g Self raising flour
  • Butter for greasing

For the white icing

  • 250 g Icing sugar
  • 2 ½ tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 ½ tsp Water

For the yellow icing

  • 50 g Icing sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp Lemon juice
  • Yellow food colouring


  • Pre-heat your oven to 160C Fan/180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 and grease a 12 hole donut tins (or two 6 hole ones) with the butter
  • In a bowl mix together the milk, eggs, vegetable oil, caster sugar and the zest of the lemons
  • Sieve in the self raising flour and whisk until a smooth batter forms
  • Divide the batter between the tins. You can put the batter into a piping bag to make it a bit neater to dispense into the trays, but you can do it with a spoon too, or pour into a jug
  • Bake them for 12 minutes or until they spring back when you press your finger into them, then remove them from the tin (I use a spoon to prise them out) and leave to cool
  • Make the white icing by mixing the ingredients together
  • Spread the icing on top of the donuts with a palette knife or spoon
  • Make the yellow icing by mixing the ingredients together, put it into a piping bag and drizzle it over the donuts
  • Add some sprinkles if you like
  • They are best the day they’re made, but you can store leftovers in an airtight cotainer and eat within 3 days
