This is a quick and easy recipe and although it calls for buttermilk, which you might not have in the fridge, you can make your own buttermilk by adding 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice or 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to 1 cup milk.  In our recipe you would eyeball ¾ of a tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to ¾ cup milk.  The buttermilk adds acidity to the recipe and when it reacts with the baking soda, your donuts become lighter in texture. blueberry-donuts-baked

Enjoy!
