Raspberry lemon cake donuts

November 9, 2015

Donuts have got to be one of my favorite things to bake up, I mean who doesn’t get their happy on eating a donut 😉 I think I am living proof that you can still lose weight and eat your donut too 🙂 and so you should.. I can’t imagine a world with no donuts.. These raspberry lemon cake ones are so delicious, simply the perfect combination! At only 2 points plus and 3 smart points each they are a great guilt free treat.

    I only have a mini donut baking pan. Would this work?

      I would not suggest a mini pan, with fruit in the donuts they might come out a bit of a mess (fruit exploding)

    Could I omit the fruit and just make a lemon donut?
