Baked Lemon Doughnuts w/ Lemon Glaze

If you want to become my best friend, you need to know 2 things:

1.  I heart all things lemon flavoured. 
2.  I heart doughnuts

If you want to become my best friend forever, combine the two above.  Friends for life.

Baked Lemon Doughnuts w/ Lemon Glaze

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 Tbsp lemon zest
4 tsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla

1 cup confectioner's sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 Tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 325F.  Coat doughnut pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, sugar, salt and lemon zest.  In small bowl whisk together buttermilk, butter, egg, lemon juice and vanilla until smooth.  Add milk mixture to flour mixture; whisk until blended and smooth.
Spoon batter into large resealable plastic bag.  Cut off corner and squeeze batter into prepared indents, about 2/3 full.  Smooth tops.  Bake for 13 minutes, until doughnuts spring back when lightly pressed.  Cool in pan on rack for 3 minutes, then carefully turn out on rack to cool.
To make glaze combine lemon juice, milk and sugar in small bowl and mix until smooth.  Dip cooled doughnuts into frosting and allow excess to drip off back into bowl.  Transfer to rack.  Enjoy!
