Mini Baked Blueberry Cake Donuts

Okay, first let me come clean.... authentic "cake" donuts these are not.  However, they are adorable and absolutely delicious!  They remind me of mini blueberry muffins.  These "donuts" are light, fluffy, and have so many possible variations.  I found the little mini donut baking tin at Bed, Bath, and Beyond - it was so cheap and worth every penny!  They would make the perfect little brunch addition ... especially in a mini martini glass.  Love.
Best dishes and yummy dreams!


Mini Baked Blueberry Cake Donuts
Recipe adapted from: Wilton Mini Donut Tin recipe

1 1/4 c. cake flour
1/2 c. organic sugar

1.  In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
2.  Add the buttermilk. egg, blueberries, and butter.  Stir until combined. 
3.  Fill the donut pan donut molds 1/2 full (trust me)
