I know you are aware of my love of baked doughnuts. I have made so many different versions, I’ve lost count.
Yesterday, I decided to make a batch of Blueberry Lemon Glazed Doughnuts I found over at Wanna Be A Country Cleaver. This recipe was a little more fussy than my usual recipes.
For one thing, you start out by making a blueberry jam using berries, sugar, and lemon juice. Y’all, I could seriously just eat this with a spoon. It is that good. After it simmers a bit, you set it aside and make your doughnut batter. Once you’ve spooned or piped your batter into a greased doughnut pan, you spoon on some of the jam. Then you use a knife to swirl it about.
After a quick little trip through the oven, you will be accosted by a heavenly aroma. Holy cow, it smells good. However, here’s where the tricky part for me came in. Apparently, I did not grease my pans well enough because my doughnuts welded themselves to the pan. Like might have to break out the hammer and chisel welded. Fortunately, I managed to pry them loose and only mangled a couple.
So, while these were fussy in comparison to some of my other doughnut recipes, they were well worth the extra effort. I could probably be persuaded to make them again. They had a wonderful texture and were lovely to behold.
Well, except for the two casualties. But we ate them anyway. Glaze covers a multitude of sins.
