Lemon Mochi Donut

Lemon Glaze


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C).
  • Prep donut pan by greasing it with oil or butter. I used a donut pan with donut molds that are 3 inches in diameter. Set aside.
  • Brown your butter. Heat butter over medium heat until it melts. Lower the heat to low and cook until brown bits start to appear. Pour into a large bowl. Let it cool for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the brown sugar and egg. Mix until incorporated.
  • Add the coconut milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix until well incorporated.
  • Add the sweet rice flour and baking powder. Mix until incorporated.
  • Spoon the dough into a pastry bag or Ziploc bag. Pipe the donuts into the prepared donut pans.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let donuts cool in the donut pan for 10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • While the donuts are cooling, combine all the ingredients for the glaze. Mix and set aside.
  • Dip the donuts into the glaze and enjoy!
