How to Make Your Own Blueberry Donuts

In honor of our new obsession with doughnuts, we decided to try to make some ourselves. Since we don't have a deep fryer, we tried for something a little lighter. These baked blueberry doughnuts will satisfy your craving for the delicious goodness of a store bought doughnut without all the guilt. Not only do these doughnuts skip the trip to the fryer, but they are packed with our new favorite super food - blueberries! Blueberries have been shown to help preserve vision, improve heart health and fight cancer. Now you can eat doughnuts and fight cancer at the same time. Sounds good to me.

I might be the only person in the history of the world that has ever been grounded from baking. That's right. When I was a teen, it wasn't the computer, or the phone or the tv that got taken away. For me, it was the unsalted butter.
