Mini Lemon Poppy Seed Donuts

Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 4-5 minutes in a donut maker/13-15 in a donut pan baked at 375ºF | Servings: 18-20 mini donuts

We set out to come up with a recipe where the amazing flavors of Tin Star Foods Brown Butter could shine through. Between the caramelly, buttery notes and the completely smooth texture—it’s quite simply a taste sensation like none other. The brown butter compliments the lemon notes of these golden gems and makes the texture of these grain free donuts simply amazing!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Otto’s Cassava Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon, plus ½ tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup Tin Star Foods Brown Butter
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¾ cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 egg
  • 10-12 drops of food grade lemon essential oil
  • 1 cup organic powdered sugar
  • Juice of one lemon

Instructions

  • Sift together cassava flour, baking powder salt, and poppy seeds.
  • In a separate bowl beat the coconut sugar and brown butter until fluffy.
  • Add syrup, coconut milk, vanilla, egg, 1 tablespoon lemon zest, and lemon oil to the ghee mixture and beat until well combined.
  • Combine dry ingredients with wet and beat again until well combined. The batter will thicken up as it sets.
  • Use a plastic bag with the tip cut off to pipe batter or you can also use a pastry bag with a large tip, whichever method, fill with batter and prep your donut maker or donut pan and bake according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • Once donuts are cooled, stir together powdered sugar, lemon juice, and remaining lemon zest in a small bowl until well combined. You want a smooth and pretty fluid consistency so that you can dip the top of the donut in it and then it will slowly drip slowly down the sides.
  • Allow glaze to set and serve!
