I've always been a HUGE donut lover! When I was a young girl we would often stop at the local bakery once or twice a month and I would always choose a donut as my 'special' treat! Cake donuts, chocolate donuts, jelly filled donuts, you name it I LOVED them! But the 'older' me has a hard time 'treating' myself to our local bakeries donuts because of course they are fried. So if I'm going to have a sweet tooth, I decided it was time to starting 'baking' my donuts instead! These Blueberry donuts are one of my latest faves because I think the combination of light and fluffy donut full of blueberries and topped with a sweet lemon glaze is the perfect combination.

Glazing the donuts with that delicious Lemon glaze!
