Vibrant summery lemon and blueberry baked donuts. Delicious indulgence without all that guilt of a typical donut. Prepped+baked in 13 minutes and eaten in 13 seconds!
Ladies and gentlemen summer is finally on it’s way! I can’t lie these last few glimpses of hot weather here in London are really getting me in the mood for summer inspired recipes. I couldn’t resist getting in the kitchen and baking some. I ended up making baked doughnuts and these lemon and blueberry baked donuts are giving me super summery vibes right now.
But health wise, it’s just not realistic to have a fried donut everyday..so baked donuts are winning me over right now.
- Way less faffing around in the kitchen.
- ZERO FRYING.
These babies took me 13 mins to make in total. This included prep and baking time. You could totally make these along side making breakfast in the morning. How would these and a coffee look at your work desk at 10 am? Blueberry and lemon are a match made in heaven and work really well in a baked donut. You could easily eat more than 3 at time they are that scrumptious.
If you end up making these beauties you will soon find out that shaping donut circles from a piping bag is very satisfying. I hope you have as much fun as I had making these and enjoy!
