So I bought donut pans months ago and, this is embarrassing, but, I recently just used them for the first time. Don't ask me what took me so long because the happy blissful citrus-y sesame-y donut vibes emanating from my oven were long overdue. I made two versions of this recipe using seasonal winter citrus - blood orange and grapefruit- and both turned out so amazing.
We are big fans of anything "lemon-poppy seed" and these donuts were a spin-off of my beloved lemon-poppy seed cake recipe. This post is dedicated to the grapefruit sesame cardamom version and I shared the blood orange poppy-seed version on Coyuchi's blog recently. Obviously you should make both, I mean you can never really have too many donuts, amiright?
So here's to many more donuts in our future... chocolate glaze needs to happen stat.
