Number of Servings: 6


    1 scant cup (130 grams) whole wheat pastry flour
    1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated natural cane sugar
    1 teaspoon (5 grams) baking powder
    1/8 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon (2 grams) sea salt
    Freshly squeezed juice and grated zest of 1 lemon
    Scant 1/2 cup (110 ml) buttermilk
    1 large egg
    1 tablespoon (14 grams) unsalted butter, melted
    Confectioners' sugar (optional)


1 Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. (220 degrees C). Grease a 6-count doughnut pan, and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and lemon zest.

3. In a measuring cup, use a fork to beat the lemon juice, buttermilk, egg, and melted butter until well-blended. Pour over the flour mixture and use a wooden spoon to stir together until just combined. Evenly spoon into the prepared doughnut pan and bake for 8 to 9 minutes until the doughnuts are lightly golden and spring back when touched.

4. Let the doughnuts cool in the pan for 2 minutes. Unmold the doughnuts and transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Use a small strainer to sift confectioner's sugar over the tops before serving, if desired.
