Lemon and blueberry baked donuts

Lemon and blueberry baked donuts

It went a little something like this.

Me: ‘I need to think of some good Christmas recipes to make for the blog before the baby comes.’

Will: ‘What about donuts they’re everywhere?’

Me: ‘Ooh good idea but I need a donut pan.’

Will: ‘Do you really need more kitchen things?!?’

Two days later, said donut pan arrives. Three days after original conversation, lemon and blueberry donuts emerge from the oven.

Now I see what all the fuss is about. I’ve never really been big into all the flavoured donuts, much preferring the classic deep-fried, crunchy cinnamon donut. Oh how I loved them as a kid.
