I was making blueberry muffins the other morning and decided to make a similar recipe into donuts. I’ve found that a lot of muffin and cake recipes work well for baked donuts.
I made these in my KitchenAid stand mixer. I used the flat beater without the flex edge. While it’s OK if some blueberries get crushed during mixing, the flex edge beater would probably crush too many. If you don’t have a stand mixer or hand mixer, you can definitely make these in a mixing bowl with a wooden spoon. Creaming the butter and sugar together is the worst part if you don’t have a mixer.
The easiest way to transfer the batter to the donut pan is to use a piping bag. No piping bag? No problem. Just use a zip-top storage bag and snip the corner off. Tip: Place the bag in a large glass to keep it upright while you transfer the batter to the bag. It’s a lot less messy that way!
