  • You will need a baked doughnut pan.
  • This recipe has been ever-so-slightly modified from this one by The Beach House Kitchen.

Ingredients

  • 360g plain flour
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarb. soda
  • ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 115g unsalted butter
  • 250g buttermilk
  • 3 eggs {room temp.}
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150g blueberries
Cinnamon sugar:
  • 100g caster sugar
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon

Method

Preheat your oven to 180*C {fan-assisted}.

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarb and cinnamon.

Melt the butter and set aside.

In a separate bowl or jug, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla extract and melted butter.

Fold the wet ingredients into the dry using a spatula.

Finally, fold in the blueberries.

Use a pastry brush to spread some vegetable oil or additional melted butter onto your doughnut pan.

Spoon the mixture into a piping bag and cut off the end {making sure it’s wide enough to get a blueberry out!}. Pipe the mixture into the doughnut pan and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes.

Whilst the doughnuts are in the oven, mix together the additional sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. When the doughnuts are baked through, cover them in the sugar and set aside to cool.

  1. congrats on the exciting life changes! That’s an interesting project, definitely something I’d never thought about, though if the situation arose where an organ was needed and given, I’d be thinking about it then, and glad for a system if it was there! Also, those donuts look perfection. miam.
