Happy Friday! Labor Day Weekend is so bittersweet. I love having a day off work, the promise of my favorite season ahead, and Notre Dame football starting tomorrow (!). But on the other hand, it means the end of summer which is always kind of sad. So to send summer off in style I drank a bottle of Rosé with my friends last night and made baked blueberry donuts for you – because nothing says summer to me more than fresh berries! And Rosé.

Also, today marks the year anniversary of the Mystery Dish group!! I joined the group late, but I still get to celebrate with them, right?! We are giving away a copy of two fabulous cookbooks – Luca Manfe’s My Italian Kitchen and Christina Ha’s Recipes from My Home Kitchen – scroll to the bottom and enter to win!

So how did we pick these two fabulous cookbooks for our giveaway? The show MasterChef was the inspiration for Mystery Dish, so it only seemed appropriate that we give away cookbooks written by two winners of the show!

Our host for this month was Andi from The Weary Chef. Her blog is full of amazing recipes that are all really easy to make! She challenged us to use three ingredients from this list:

pistachios
wine
mint
gluten-free flour (coconut, rice, almond, etc.)
red pepper flakes
fish
agave nectar
applesauce
blueberries
parmesan cheese
milk
corn

I chose almond flour, blueberries, and milk to make my Baked Blueberry Donuts! I am such a sucker for baked donuts – if you couldn’t tell from all of these posts, they are one of my favorite things to make!  They are quick, easy, delicious, cute, impressive, and so much lighter than the real deal.  If you don’t have a donut pan, I highly suggest buying one.  I have this Wilton one and absolutely love it.

These donuts are super light in texture thanks to almond flour and yogurt, and are full of blueberries. But the real star is the blueberry glaze! It is made from blended blueberries and powdered sugar – just pure sweet, fruity goodness! Since there is no cream, the glaze is a little thinner than the typical glazes I use for my donuts, so these are best enjoyed the same day. If you let them sit for a day, the donut starts to soak in the glaze. They still taste amazing, but the texture isn’t quite right the second day!

There is so much going on today – make sure to check out all of my friend’s amazing recipes, and enter at the bottom of the page to win the awesome cookbooks!

    I wish I’d had one of these delicious donuts for my breakfast — I was not in the oatmeal mood today! What a tasty way to use up some of those ingredients, Cate!

    I love these doughnuts, Cate! I have a bag of almond flour in my pantry but haven’t known what to do with it. I’m going to pick up a doughnut pan and try these! I’ll miss doing Mystery Dish with you :)

      Thank you so much, Andi! I love throwing a little almond flour in my baked goods! We will miss you in Mystery Dish – maybe you can guest post one month!!

    I feel kind of foolish admitting it, but I’ve never thought to bake doughnuts! I love the idea – it’s so much healthier sounding than frying and won’t make the house smell like oil. Thanks! Visiting from SNF> =)

      I only discovered baked donuts last fall, but I am now obsessed! So much healthier than real donuts and so much easier! Thanks for stopping by, so glad you found me on SNF!

      You are making me blush! I think genuineness is definitely a word, and I’m honored that you bestowed it upon my baked donuts! As you know, I’m slightly obsessed with them :)
