    Directions

    For the fonuts: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

    In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, rosemary, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center of the bowl. In another bowl, combine the eggs with the milk, olive oil, vegetable oil, lemon zest and lemon juice. Add the wet ingredients to the well in the dry ingredients and incorporate the dry into the wet. The mixture should be slightly lumpy.

    Bake in a doughnut pan until light golden, 10 to 12 minutes. (You can make as muffins or in a loaf pan, but the cooking times will vary.)

    For the topping: In a coffee grinder or spice grinder, grind the pine nuts into a powder. Add salt to taste. Place the mixture in a shallow pan and dip the tops of the baked fonuts into it. If the topping does not stick, lightly spray the tops of each fonut with olive oil.

      Delicious recipe. Savoury but slightly sweet. Almost like a cornbread or a muffin in texture rather than a traditional "donut". They are moist and delicious.
      The time was a little off for my oven - found 13 min to be perfect. I didn't use the pine nuts but instead I sprayed the top with a little olive oil spray and then sprinkled granulated sugar on top. Recipe yielded 16 full size donuts
