Meyer lemon baked doughnuts

3 Feb

I bought a bag of Meyer lemons at tjs and needed something to do with them! I love doughnuts so I figured I’d try these! Plus i had some brand new doughnut pans that were screaming to be used! They looked good after I put the icing on them. And the icing made them slightly edible, but overall they tasted weird! Humph.
