I told you all a few weeks ago that you may never here the end of my new baked donut obsession, right?
I may not have time to make every variety of doughnut that comes to mind, but I’ll find time to make a lot of them, because it’s just too easy!
I’ve had a doughnut baking pan for months and never got around to using it, but a few weeks ago, Gabriel’s cousin gifted him with an electric doughnut iron, and naturally, I just couldn’t wait to put it to good use. It’s so cool to be able to bake a batch of doughnuts a). without waiting for the oven to heat up, and b). that only take about 5 minutes to cook.
That’s five minutes to yumminess!
In this case, the yumminess includes lot of juicy blueberries, and is topped with sweet-tart lemon glaze. THAT is good stuff!
My only complaint was that with the first batch, where I used wild blueberries, because they’re so little (and I was making mini doughnuts, so it made sense), and the berries were pretty tasteless.
Are all wild blueberries tasteless, or did I just get a crummy batch?
I don’t know, but regular big blueberries from the Aldi freezer isle are sweet, and juicy, and just perfect. Yum!
I told you – I have an obsession.
