Baked Blueberry Donuts with Honey Glaze

We’re big fans of donuts in our home.  Baked, fried, vanilla, chocolate, donut holes, sprinkled, glazed and icing drizzled.   Donuts are good little sweet things!   These blueberry donuts were baked in my donut maker and topped with a nice honey glaze.  I bought a large container of local Michigan honey.  I love this stuff!  I use honey in my tea, smoothies, on top of cottage cheese, in baked goods, on fruit, and with a spoon.

The blueberries were on sale and I bought a few too many packages.   I did freeze some for smoothies and baked with the rest.  If you need another way to use up your blueberries, you can make this Blueberry Buttermilk Bundt Cake.

The blueberries were pureed to evenly distribute the blueberry flavor.  These baked blueberry donuts were slightly tinted blue, from the blueberry puree.  Also, little flecks of blue showed from the skins of the blueberries.  Pretty little things, showing off their blueberry skins.  Honey is baked right into these donuts to make sure you get a hint of honey, in every bite.  

My cute little donut maker was able to create 20 little donuts from this recipe.  I really like my donut maker.  It bakes only five donuts at a time.  It bakes them pretty quick though.   Our son, Landon, and I, ate ten… Alright, mostly me.  They were just so tasty, I couldn’t stop.  Plus, they were on the smaller side, so I really only ate  2 donuts.  Okay..

 These baked blueberry donuts behaved for this photo shoot.  Not like my “diva” pumpkin cream layer cake.

    These look soooo delicious! I love blueberry-anything. I’m surprised that you managed to sustain the nice colour with the pureed berries!
