I’m taking another break from the blog today and letting Dean provide another post and recipe for you. He’s the one who makes special breakfasts around here, most of the time. I just sit back and let it happen!
Hello, Dean is back for a guest post and time for part 2 of my Mother’s Day Brunch doughnut extravaganza. If you missed part 1 with my chocolate chocolate chip doughnut recipe fear not. It can be found here.
This is the reason I wanted a doughnut pan in the first place. It was one of the first eggless doughnut recipes I found on Pinterest. Now it’s not my recipe, I modified it only slightly due to what ingredients I had on hand. The original can be found at the Bear and Lion website.

Free From: Egg, Peanut, Tree Nut, Soy, Fish, Shellfish (still happy about those last two). It could be modified to be top 8 free.
- 2 cups rolled oats (To be honest I didn’t know what rolled oats were and didn’t want to take the few minutes to Google it. I was on a time crunch after all. I used what I had: quick oats.)
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk (All I had was 1% milk, not as flavorful, but healthier.)
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 cup frozen blueberries (I really like blueberries so I added a full cup.)
Mix until just combined. Now these blueberries seemed big to me and I didn’t want to have some sections/bites to not have a blueberry, so I used a spoon and smashed them up a bit.
Be careful not to over mix!
Fill doughnut pan to the top.
Bake for 16-18 minutes until golden brown.
Be careful not over bake!
Let them cool on a wire rack and enjoy! Makes a dozen doughnuts.
The original recipe didn’t call for a glaze, this is more like a doughnut shaped muffin. I thought it could use a little extra something, it was for Mother’s Day after all! So I used the glaze recipe from the fried doughnut recipe here.
Once again I didn’t get a final picture with the glaze on. Just a zoomed in image of one on a mother’s plate. Next time, remember? I promise.
These were well received, but not as much as the cream cheese frosted, chocolate chocolate chip doughnuts. Surprised? The boys didn’t like these that much, but I thought it was a good tasting doughnut that is a little bit more healthy. Until my next blog post, don’t forget how super you are!
Do you have a favorite doughnut recipe you found on Pinterest?
