blueberry cream donuts

I have been known to get obsessed.

Last year, I had a real thing for muffins. I couldn’t get enough of those dang muffins

Lately it’s all about these freaking donuts. I’m sorry. I am almost over my donut binge. Just a few more recipes, and then I will stop. I refuse to buy bigger pants, so I will have to.

Try to think of baked donuts as a substitute for muffins. Especially these blueberry donuts- which would be easy to swap for blueberry muffins, even on a week morning.

Did you know that when I did that donut pan give-away two weeks ago that I asked everyone what their favorite flavor was? There were some consistent favorites: Bavarian cream (what is that??!) and blueberry.

Well guess what? Blueberry donuts certainly caught my attention… I whipped a batch on Sunday morning and my kids devoured them.

Mason managed to sneak a couple too. He’s a tough critic, and L-O-V-E-D them. Wait. He also eats dirt, and garbage, and, oh, never mind….
