These Mini Baked Blueberry Donuts Make For A Sweet And Easy Recipe


I never tried to make my own doughnuts because I thought it required a deep fryer or one of those metal baskets to put in a pot of boiling oil. It always seemed complicated to me and likely to make a huge mess. However, this recipe for mini blueberry donuts is the complete opposite of those things!

The best part about this recipe is that it only takes 10 minutes to prepare and another 10 minutes to cook. You will only need a small number of ingredients, and none of them are oil! There’s also a simple lemon glaze to go with them, because as everyone knows, blueberries and lemon are a winning combination.


If you don’t have a donut pan, they’re relatively inexpensive and will make the process go a lot more smoothly. However, you can also use tinfoil as a DIY alternative to a donut pan. If you’re the ultimate donut lover, I would recommend buying the pan – I’m willing to bet you’ll get a ton of use out of it.
