Arnold Palmer Baked Donuts // A Style Caddy

One of my all-time favorite drinks is the Arnold Palmer - a mix of iced tea and lemonade that is  so delicious and refreshing. The drink is named after the legendary golfer, Arnold Palmer. "The King", as he is affectionately called, said he always made the drink for himself at home and, as his story goes, ordered it one day in Palm Springs when a woman overheard him and copied him. From then on, the drink had a name and became increasingly popular.

Now, I'm not just talking about this for no reason. Tomorrow is the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational so I thought it would be an Arnold Palmer-inspired treat with you! I whipped up these cakey donuts over the weekend and loved them. They've got just the right amount of black tea to match with a slightly sweet yet tangy lemon glaze. It's the perfect thing to have for breakfast or as an afternoon treat with a cup of hot tea. Or with an ice cold Arnold Palmer of course...


Black Tea Infused Donuts:
1 cup water
7-8 black tea bags {I used Lipton}
2 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup sugar
3 tbsp butter {room temperature}
2 egg
Lemon Glaze:
1½ cups confectioners' sugar
Juice of 1 lemon

1. In a kettle or in a bowl in the microwave, heat the water until lightly boiling. Add the tea bags and steep for 30 minutes. Allow tea to cool.
2. Preheat oven to 325°F and grease your donut pan.
3. Whisk together the dry ingredients and set aside.
4. Mix the sugar and butter together with a hand mixer or in a stand mixer.
5. Add the eggs one at a time and mix until combined.
6. Pour in the tea liquid and continue mixing until fully incorporated.
7. Slowly add the dry ingredients while mixing. Mix until the batter is completely smooth.
8. Transfer the batter to the donut pan using a piping bag, spoon, Ziploc bag... whatever your preferred method is. Pipe the wells about 2/3 full.
9. Bake for 12-13 minutes.
10. Let the donuts cool in the pan for about five minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Lemon Glaze:
1. In a bowl, whisk together the confectioners' sugar and the lemon juice.
2. Dip the completely cooled donuts into the glaze. You can either dip these twice or drizzle the remaining glaze over them.
