Baked Blueberry Doughnuts

2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. buttermilk (regular milk is fine too)
4 eggs
6 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 c. water
1 c. fresh blueberries. (Do not try to make these doughnuts with frozen blueberries.  Mess!)

1 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp lemon juice

1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

2. In a separate bowl, gently crush the blueberries with a pastry blender or a fork.

3. Add the liquid ingredients to the crushed berries and blend well.

4. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.  Don't overmix this.

5. Fill each cavity in a doughnut pan about 2/3 full. (I use a zip lock bag with the corner snipped off to do this.  Sort of like piping cake icing -- much neater.)

6. Bake doughnuts at 325ยบ for about 15 minutes (depending on your oven.)

7. While doughnuts are cooling, prepare glaze:  Mix together the powered sugar and lemon juice.  Add water 1 tsp at a time until it reaches a thick drizzling consistency.  Drizzle glaze over cooled doughnuts. (Makes about 15 doughnuts.)
