Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. You'll need two donut pans (six-cavity each). Prepare them with a light coating of nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Measure the flour, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Sift together until well blended.
  4. In a second bowl, add the eggs, butter, yogurt, lemon juice and zest, and vanilla extract. Beat the mixture until smooth and well blended.
  5. Now add the wet ingredients to the dry, and stir together. The batter should be smooth, but not over-mixed.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared donut pans.
  7. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes. The visible edges of the donuts should begin to turn a light golden color. Test by touching the tops of the donuts lightly - they should spring back.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow the donuts to cool for about 5 minutes before removing from the pans.
Sugar Coating:
  1. Combine the sugar and lemon zest in a bowl, and use a fork or the back of a spoon to blend them together. You can also grind them together in a food processor.
  2. One by one, dip the donuts in the melted butter, and then in the sugar/lemon coating.
Lemon Glaze:
  1. Blend the icing sugar and lemon juice together until the sugar has melted into a smooth glaze.
  2. Drizzle over the donuts liberally.
