Blueberry Donuts with a Lemon Glaze

I love my donut pan.  If you don't have a donut pan, get a donut pan...or two if you have a large family!  The donut recipe came from Ezra Pound Cake and I just whipped up a simple glaze recipe to top them. Delicious!

1 1/3 cup Flour
3/4 tsp Baking Powder
1/8 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 cup Buttermilk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tbsp Butter (at room temperature)
1/8 cup Canola Oil
1/4 cup and 2 tbsp Sugar
1 Egg
1/2 cup Blueberries

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2-3 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Heat oven to 425. In a mixing bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg.  In a small bowl whisk together buttermilk and vanilla extract.  In a separate bowl beat together butter, oil and sugar then beat in the egg.  Stir in 1/3 of the flour mixture then 1/3 of the buttermilk mixture until all all of the ingredients are combined.  Fold in the blueberries.  Spoon the batter into the donut pan filling each donut well.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.  While the donuts are baking whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice to make the glaze, start with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and add more for a thinner glaze.  Once the donuts have been removed from the pan and cooled slightly, carefully dip them in the glaze then serve.
