Equipment

  • Medium Bowl
  • Donut Pan
  • Food processor/blender
  • Small Mixing Bowl

Ingredients

Lemon Donuts

  • 15.25 ounces lemon cake mix 1 box
  • 3.4 ounces Instant lemon pudding mix 1 box
  • 1 cup greek vanilla yogurt or plain
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Blueberry Frosting

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened

Instructions

Lemon Donuts

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl with hand mixer (or in a stand mixer), mix together cake mix, pudding mix, yogurt, water, eggs, oil, and lemon juice for 1-2 minutes, or until completely combined.
  • Pipe (or carefully spoon) mixture into greased donut pans, filling about 2/3 full. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the tops of the donuts are light golden brown.
  • Allow donuts to cool, then dip in frosting and serve.

Blueberry Frosting

  • Place the blueberries, powdered sugar and lemon juice in a food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Transfer to a small mixing bowl and add the softened butter. Mix with a hand mixer until completely combined. Add more powdered sugar as needed to reach your desired frosting consistency (I added about another 1/2 cup).
