I've been in a doughnut mood lately. As some of y'all may know, I'm not really a breakfast eater type person. Toast and coffee .... that's my thing. Even when it comes to doughnuts, I just want one. My family isn't complaining, it's more for them!

These Orange Doughnuts with Orange Glaze are tender with just a hint of orange flavor! They're perfect for a weekend breakfast ... or for Mother's Day! Ya'll did remember that it's coming up soon, right?!

Orange Doughnuts with Orange Glaze
Printable recipe
Yield: 16-20 doughnuts plus doughnut holes

For the doughnuts:
3¼ cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
⅔ cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. grated orange peel
⅔ cup orange juice
¼ cup (4 tbsp.) butter, melted

For the glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. grated orange peel
3 tbsp. orange juice

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla until thick and lemon colored. In a small bowl, combine the orange peel, orange juice and butter. 

Add the orange juice mixture and dry ingredients alternately to the egg mixture. Beat with electric mixer just until blended after each addition. Cover and chill dough for at least 2 hours.

Roll out onto a lightly floured surface to ⅜-in. thick. Cut with a floured 2½-in. doughnut cutter. Fry in oil (375°F) about one minute per side, turning once. Drain on a rack over paper towels. 

Mix all of the glaze ingredients until well combined. Dip the tops of doughnuts into the glaze and place glaze side up on the rack to set.
