I got lazy and resorted to using a Jiffy box mix.
I try really hard to cook as much and as often as I can, but sometimes I just have to resort to the box. Sometimes Jiffy and I can be best buds and there are times when I am cursing them like an angry sailor. I tend to do a lot of experimenting with Jiffy mixes, too because I have a local outlet which sells them for 25 cents a box. Plus, they remind me of my great-grandma and grandma. I just can’t imagine my life without those little Jiffy box mixes.
You know why else I love them so much? Perfectly portioned for me and my family. Since kiddo is only here on weekends, I don’t have to worry about half of a cake pan yelling at me during the week to eat it. Besides, it’s not like we use them every week, so I don’t feel bad about throwing them into the mix every so often. I do make my own pancake mix, so I think it’s a fair trade. 😉 I know I should not eat this stuff at all as it doesn’t help in the weight loss or insulin resistance department.
Middle of summer I started to get obsessed with cooking, baking and drinking lemon garnished goodies. I think it has died down a little bit because our summer quickly turned into fall with the never-ending rain.
Since it’s cooler I thought I would take advantage and turn the oven on.
Besides, sometimes you just have to have a warm donut right out of the oven.
Blueberry Donuts with Lemon Glaze
- For the Muffins:
- 1 Bluberry Jiffy Muffin Mix
- 1 tbs Lemon Juice
- 1 tsp Lemon Zest
- 1/4 c Skim Milk
- 1 egg
- For the Glaze
- 1/4 c Skim Milk
- 1/8 c Lemon Juice
- 1/8 c Powdered Sugar
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Grease your donut pan with your preferred method.
- Pour all ingredients in a bowl and blend on low until all ingredients are well mixed.
- Using a small spoon, spoon the batter into the donut pan.
- Do not fill to top as batter will expand when cooking.
- While the donuts are cooking you can mix up the glaze. If you want it a little thicker, add more powdered sugar.
- Once donuts come out of the oven place them on a plate and add the glaze to the top.
- Serve warm or cooled.
Do you have that one thing you know you are supposed to eat but you just can’t give it up?

I have never made my own donuts at home before. I think if I ever started, I would be in real trouble because I would be making them every day!
I thought that too. But I am not much of a baker so I think that saves me a bit.
Will you come cook for me for the next 9 months. I need these, and the pumpkin spice ones, and fresh bread. Send me a care package!
Donuts are one treat I haven’t had the nerve to tackle yet! This recipe looks delicious, I love the addition of the lemon glaze to the blueberry donuts.
What an easy recipe! I want to try these!

Ive never made home made donuts but you’ve made making donuts easy! Never thought to use a donut pan! I should look into this.
Much healthier than deep frying and so much easier. I paid about $10 for my pan.
Jeanine @ sixtimemommy.com says
My husband keeps talking about making donuts, I should share this with him! They look incredible!
Thanks so much.
Oh for the love of deliciousness! I need to make these in the morning!
I haven’t had a donut in two years these look really nice
I don’t eat them often. I find every time I buy one from the shop all the sugar makes me sick. So, I just don’t buy them anymore. I give myself a treat on my birthday with some chocolate milk then I have to eat some protein. I find making them is a bit better on my body. Still not super healthy, but at least better.
These sound great! I told my husband about them, and now he is insisting that we make some LOL!
Let me know how they turn out for you!
I can’t give up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I have no control around them.
Those are my fave!
Such a great flavor combo. I’d love to try these, preferably on an outside deck with a beautiful view, and the family in the house sleeping (so they don’t eat my donuts, hahahaha).
I would have to agree with you on that!
This looks wonderful. I love lemon and blueberry baked goods and this is so yummy I will have to try it.
I hope you do!

These looks so tasty! I love Lemon Glaze on Blueberry! Pinned to my dessert board!
Thank you for the pin!
Janel (A Mom's Take) says
Oh my! Those looks yum-o! I’d love to have those right now with my morning coffee.
They dunk well, I tried. 😉
Janeane Davis says
Mmmmmmm these look so good. I think my kids would like these. Blueberry and lemon seems like a nice flavor combination.
It’s a very ‘summer’ flavor.
those sound really good. I’m sure you could freeze them and take out just 1 every few days for a treat
The good thing about the Jiffy mix we used is that it did not make very many. I try not to make sweats often. When I make larger batches I do freeze them. They hold up pretty well.

I think it would be so fun to make donuts from scratch. These look so good!
I let kiddo mix the batter. Shes a great mini chef.
Ann Bacciaglia says
This reminds me of when i was a kid my Dad would make home made Doughnuts. We would watch as he made the dough and help cut them out with the doughnut cutter. I used to love the holes dipped in cinnamon sugar. MMMMmmmmmm.
That sounds amazing!
Homemade blueberry donuts!? Uh, yes please! I have never tried making my own donuts, but this post is really tempting me!
I haven’t tried too many recipes. This is the first one I used a mix for. Family enjoyed them!
These really look super delicious 🙂
Thank you Winnie!
These sound so awesome! I love blueberries!
I use them a lot. Especially when in season. We have a pick your own farm very close to us.
These look very appetizing! We’ll have to try this recipe in the near future. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for stopping by.

I really like lemon and blueberry together!! Those look delish. I’ve used cake mixes to make donuts before. Shhhh!
Secret is safe with me 😉
Liz Mays says
Two of my favorite flavors together in these. I would like to place an order for a dozen! 😉
Coming right up!
Oh my goodness! Those sound absolutely delicious. Bookmarked.
Thanks! Let me know if you decide to try them.
Psssh, I love Jiffy! No worries from me, looks yum!
Hahaha. I just try to stay away from boxed / prepackaged stuff when I can. But sometimes I need that comfort family feeling!
Danielle @ We Have It All says
Oooh those look SO GOOD! And I LOVE Jiffy!
Me too! Let me know if you decide to give them a try.
Shannon Gosney says

There is something about blueberry and lemon that is just perfect together.

Melissa @ This Girl's Life Blog says
These sound delicious. My daughter is all about anything blueberry so i’m sure she would love them.
For a box, they turned out pretty good!
Debbie Denny says
Oh that looks so good. Perfect indulgence.
I think I need a foodie gift package. With pumpkin everything and anything. And these. These too. Thanks for co-hosting with me #yuckstopshere
If we can again this year I’ll send you some pumpkin goodies.
