Easy Lemon Donuts with Blueberry Frosting Recipe

Tart, fluffy lemon cake donuts, baked to perfection and dipped in sweet blueberry frosting. These make the perfect addition to any breakfast or brunch.

I love all. things. lemon. Lemon bars, lemon chicken, lemon rice, and Pound Cake.

I took our lemon pound cake and modified it to make it into these delicious cakey donuts! They are fluffy, tart, moist, and taste absolutely fantastic. I covered them in a blueberry frosting and they were a HUGE hit with my whole family.
