Blueberry Lemon Donuts

In honor of National Donut Day tomorrow, I have for you….. Blueberry Lemon Donuts.  I pretty much love lemon with anything!  Blueberry, cherry, raspberry…. And in donuts, muffins, drinks…..  There is something about the tart flavor that complements other flavors so well.  To be honest, these donuts were more reminiscent of a muffin as far as texture goes.  They have whole blueberries with a hint of lemon in the batter, when still warm they are tossed in a cinnamon/sugar mixture then topped with a lemon drizzle.  They were moist and wonderful served warm!  Whether it’s these donuts, a homemade donut from yesterday’s roundup, or a run to your favorite local donut shop…. I hope that you join me and enjoy celebrating National Donut day tomorrow!

    Delicious fruity flavor combination! Have you ever tried a baked doughnut recipe in either a muffin pan or a mini bunt pan? I am wondering if it would work. The mini bundt pan would even have the hole in the middle like a doughnut. I keep pinning and printing doughnut recipes but don’t (yet) have the right pan. 🙂
