Blueberry-Lemon Cake Donuts – and a giveaway!

 

I may have mentioned my affinity before for kitchen gadgets, especially specialized ones I really don’t have space for.  But I keep buying them anyway.  It’s like I can’t stop myself.  I’m addicted.  But there are worse things–right?

And the good news here is that I bought this Wilton cake donut pan not just for me, but for one of you, too.

I don’t want to be alone in my obsession.

Here’s how you can have up to three chances to win:

  1. Post a comment here, naming your favorite kind of donut.
  2. “Like” me on Facebook, then post a comment here letting me know you did.
  3. Share a link to my Facebook page or to this giveaway on your Facebook page, then come back here to comment that you did.

Giveaway will remain open through Friday, September 2, 2011.  Winner will be chosen by random.org and announced Monday, September 5.

These are super easy to make, and the possibilities are endless.  I took Wilton’s basic recipe and jazzed it up a bit with blueberries and lemon.

First, sift together your dry ingredients, including the zest of one lemon.  I didn’t take a picture of that, because frankly, looking at a picture of flour is BORING.

Wet ingredients:  This isn’t that much more exciting.

But…wait for it…gently fold in your blueberries.  YUM!

 Spoon carefully into your molds:

Bake at 350 for 7 to 9 minutes.  Let cool.  It’s hard to wait.

Drizzle with a glaze of powdered sugar, milk, and lemon juice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

By the way, Wilton is in no way involved with this giveaway.  Wilton has no idea who Kitchen Meets Girl is, other than someone who took a few of their cake classes a few years ago and could barely get the shell technique down.

I’m soooooooooo much better at eating cake than decorating it.

  1. ooh, how fun! these donuts looks absolutely delish + i’ve been thinking of buying a donut pan. my favorite type of donuts? i love chocolate cake donuts with glaze, although i haven’t eaten one in years – watching my waistline! i’d love to try some ‘unusual’ donut flavors – like mojito, s’mores, etc. the possibilities are endless!

  2. Those look amazing and blueberry cake donuts are my absolute fav. I’m not even going to allow myself to think about getting one of these cake plans and making these. That would be a total waistline disaster.

  3. Oh my goodness! I think I died and went to blueberry heaven! These look devine, I can not wait to try them! Thanks for sharing!

  4. My Favorite Dounts are Dunkin Donuts Old Fashioned!!! Also something that can not be bought anymore, Dominick’s Southern Donuts! Which gives me a great excuse to google and try my hand at recreating!

  5. Well of course I liked you on facebook and just put a link to you on there!!!

  6. I can’t remember when I have had a donut–always thinking about calories and you can’t eat just one. But I would love to try these. They look so yumm.y
