Lemon Almond Tart, Almond Lemon Loaf and now Almond Lemon Doughnuts! These doughnuts are a great add-up for my vegan doughnuts recipes. The dough has the perfect smooth, “cakey” and moist texture. I glazed it with coconut yogurt, lemon zest and a drizzle of almond butter. The almond butter is homemade. I only used sliced almonds and organic coconut oil. I put in practice my skills from Icadelicias Nuts Spreads.
These Lemon Almond doughnuts are incredibly balanced between their texture and their flavor. They are not sweet and you can taste the lemon and feel the nutty almonds.
