1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cardamom
½ tsp salt
Zest of 1 organic lemon
4 ½ tbsp organic lemon juice

Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 12 min per batch
Servings: 1 dozen
1 Preheat oven to 350° F. Combine milk with lemon juice in a sealed container and allow to sit in refrigerator for at least 20 minutes. Mixture will curdle slightly.
2 Meanwhile, combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl: wheat flour, cake flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cardamom, and lemon zest. Remove milk mixture from fridge and, in a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients: milk mixture, melted butter, and egg. Blend well. Slowly add wet ingredients to dry ingredients until well combined. Then fold in finely chopped blueberries and mix well. Spoon mixture into a large pastry bag or 1-gallon sealed plastic ziplock bag with corner cut off and fill pre-greased donut baking pans each about ¾ of the way.
3 Bake donuts for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly on baking rack.
4 Meanwhile, fill deep frying pot with vegetable oil to about 2" deep. Heat oil to approximately 365° F. Fry each donut in oil for about 20–30 seconds on each side or until medium brown color appears. Allow grease to drain from donuts.
5 To create the icing, place ½ cup chopped blueberries and ½ cup of water in a sauté pan on medium heat. Bring mixture to slight boil and cook blueberries down until completely soft. Remove from heat and combine with powdered sugar and milk in medium bowl until desired icing thickness has been reached. When donuts are cool to the touch, dip top of donuts into icing mixture and drip dry on baking rack. Allow icing to harden slightly then serve.
