Did everyone have a good weekend? We did! We spent the day at Disneyland with Baby Stella and she loved it. She is starting to take everything in and loves all the characters, especially Minnie Mouse.

I love watching how much joy she brings to those around us with all her smiling and waving. She rode around on Daddy’s shoulders most of the day, squealing and laughing at everything.

She is quite the Disney baby, she has been at least a dozen times. It helps that we live really close. Whenever we go to Disneyland, we are all about the treats and it’s always a debate about which ones we will get since there are SO many great choices to pick from. I am a sucker for the benigets.

Have you ever had a beniget? They were made famous in Louisiana. It is a pillowy, soft, square donut that is covered in powdered sugar and served warm. It’s a little slice of heaven. Nick on the other hand LOVES the Ghirardelli ice cream shop and always wants a big ol’ caramel banana milkshake. Yesterday we got both. And today I am telling myself I need to hit the gym…but lets be real, I probably won’t.

Guys, this addiction is never going to end! These baked blueberry donuts are incredible! They are decadent, moist, and can compete with any bakery style donut. I love that they are baked and so easy to make.

My favorite part of these donuts though is the glaze. I pureed fresh blueberries and mixed them with powdered sugar and whipped butter. I was eating it straight out of the bowl (I am a real sucker for sugar and stuff).

Here are a couple tips:

  • Don’t overmix the batter or the donuts will be tough.
  • Don’t take the donuts out of the pan until they have completely cooled…they will fall apart. Speaking from experience here, I am slightly impatient.
  • If you are using frozen blueberries, let them thaw out before pureeing them.
  • If you do not have a donut pan, not to worry. These would make delicious muffins. The cooking time would be longer though. I would assume around 30 minutes but I haven’t tested it.

These donuts are absolutely heavenly! I tried limiting myself to only one but it was impossible. These are SOOO good!

Okay and here is what you are probably really excited for. The giveaway! I wish you all the best of luck! The giveaway runs until April 19th. 😉

Serves: 12 Donuts
Ingredients
  • Blueberry Cake Donuts:
  • 1½ Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 5 Tablespoons Butter, melted
  • ⅔ Cup Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • ½ Cup Milk
  • 1 Cup Fresh or Frozen Blueberries
  • Fresh Blueberry Glaze:
  • 1 Stick Butter, softened
  • ½ Cup Fresh Blueberries
  • 2 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Milk
  • Optional: ½ Cup Crunchy Cereal for topping (I used Honey Bunches of Oats)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Grease a donut pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder. In a separate bowl, combine the melted butter, sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Whisk in the beaten eggs. Gently mix the wet and dry ingredients together, alternating with the milk. Do not over mix! Fold in the blueberries. Spoon the batter into the donut pan, filling about two thirds of the way full. Bake for 17- 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean and the tops have started to turn a very light golden brown. Cool completely before frosting.
  2. In a bowl, beat butter with a hand mixer on medium speed until whipped and fluffy, about two minutes. Set aside. In a food processor or blender, puree the blueberries until smooth, adding a few tablespoons of water if necessary. Add the blueberry mixture and powdered sugar to the butter. Beat another minute or until well mixed. Dip the donuts into the frosting and sprinkle with toppings if desired.

    These look so so so good! Also a huge fan of Disney beignets. NOM. I was also at Disney yesterday! Probably walked right past you as I was running to get my clam chowder bowl tehe 🙂

    Awww, Stella looks so adorable! That must be so fun taking her to Disneyland — I love it there. 🙂 These baked donuts look so delicious (especially that glaze)!

    Could baby Stella look any happier to be at Disneyland!? Such a cutie! And nice that you guys live so close by. I went to college for a year in LA, and of course got a season pass. We would go around 7pm at night for a few hours and catch the fireworks. So fun! These donuts sound SO good!

      I grew up doing that too. My dad always would take us for a few hours. We loved it. If we ever leave California, I am gonna miss it so much!
      Which college did you go to?! =)

    • Mariah Mercurio says

      We love going to disneyland! It’s our favorite weekend activity.
      I didn’t know you had come down to California! Have you brought the girls?

    Such a fun weekend you had! Stella is SO adorable 🙂 I had benigets for the first time on a trip to vegas many years ago and fell in love! I still think about them from time to time haha. These donuts are to-die-for… I wish I had one right now!

      Benigets are SOOO good! Luckily for me, the only place I know to get them is at Disneyland so at least I have some restraint lol.
      Thanks Keri =)

      Thanks Rachelle.
      I am dying to have an authentic beniget from New Orleans. Some day, it is on the bucket list.
