Ingredients
  • FOR THE DOUGHNUTS:
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 180g Greek yogurt
  • 1tbsp vanilla bean paste
  • 115g unsalted butter, melted, plus extra for greasing
  • 1tsp lemon zest
  • 320g plain flour
  • 250g golden caster sugar
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
Method
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.

  • In a large bowl, stir together the eggs, yogurt, vanilla, melted butter and lemon zest. Sift in the dry ingredients and mix well until smooth.

  • Lightly grease a doughnut or muffin tin with some melted butter. One-third fill each hole with batter and bake for about 12 mins until risen and slightly browned.

  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Repeat until you have baked about 24 doughnuts.

  • To make the icing, mix the sugar with the rosewater and lemon juice in a bowl until it is a thick white paste, thinning with a little water if needed.

  • Dip the doughnuts into the icing or drizzle it over the them, then immediately scatter the rose petals so that they stick to the icing.

  • These doughnuts will keep for 2 days in an airtight container.
