for the glaze
juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
Make the doughnut recipe as instructed then allow to rise for 2 hours.
Roll out the dough and cut out the doughnuts to your preference. Place on a floured surface and cover with a damp tea towel and allow to rise for another hour.
In the meantime, make the glaze. Combine all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and blend until smooth. Place in a jug and press a piece of cling wrap to the surface. This will prevent the glaze from forming a skin.
Heat the oil in a large, deep frying pan then carefully fry the doughnuts until golden brown and cooked through.
Remove from the oil and drain on kitchen paper before pouring over the glaze.
