Why we love Baked Blueberry Lemon Donuts Recipe
These baked blueberry lemon donuts are a mouth-watering way to incorporate some delightful blueberries into your breakfast or snack. Don’t worry~ if you don’t happen to have a cute donut baking pan, you can bake these up in a muffin tin or even a mini muffin tin might be fun!
Healthy Benefits of Blueberries
I love it when fresh blueberries are on sale so I can bake with them to my little hearts content. I also like to freeze a bunch to use through out the winter. Blueberries are one of my favorites~ did you realize how good they are for you? They are.
Blueberries are packed with Vitamin C, Fiber, Manganese all of which help our hearts, our brains, our insulin response, and they’re cancer fighting too! All that wrapped up in each flavor-bursting-bite. Mmmm mmm.
Helpful baking tips for higher elevations:
- If you live 3,000 feet above sea level or more it is considered high elevation and may take longer to cook/bake.
- Adjustments are needed for 5000+ feet and above:
- Reduce baking powder: for each teaspoon, decrease 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon.
- Reduce sugar: for each cup, decrease 2 tablespoons.
- Increase liquid: for each cup, add 2 to 4 tablespoons.
- Increase oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
- Check if it is done a little early.
- This takes some trial and error to get it right for you.
