To Make the Baked Gingerbread Donuts

  3. Combine the first 8 ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  4. Combine the remaining ingredients in a smaller bowl.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix just until barely combined. (Do not overmix or the donuts could come out tough. The batter should be lumpy.)

  8. Cool the donuts completely and top with Lemon Yogurt Glaze.
