D is for Donuts! Sunny Made Donuts and I Helped!

There are a few things that you don't know about Sunny.

1) She loves to bake

2) She isn't a huge dessert fan

3) Cookies, ice cream and donuts are the only desserts she'll actually finish

4) Before bed she enjoys cuddling and watching Food Network and The Cooking Channel with me.

The other night we were watching Unique Sweets on The Cooking Channel.  It was the episode about donuts.  In this episode one of the places they were talking about was The Donut Man in California.  One of their famous donuts is a strawberry stuffed yeast donut.  

So, since I'm participating in Vegan Mofo I decided to treat y'all to a vegan blueberry donut.  Honestly though, this recipe would work well with any puree.  In the mood for strawberry?  Use strawberries!  Want a really simple one?  Use applesauce!  Do you want to sneak in some veggies for the kids?  Puree zucchini.  You could even make these chocolate by cutting out 1/4 cup flour, add in 1/4 cup cocoa powder and up the sugar to about 4-6 tablespoons.
