2 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. sugar
1 stick melted butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 c. milk
1 1/2 c. blueberries
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and sugar. In a smaller bowl, combine the egg, milk, and butter. Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture, and stir just until combined; do not over mix. Fold in the blueberries.
Scoop the batter into a pastry bag or a ziploc bag with one of the bottom corners snipped off.
In a large skillet or dutch oven, heat 2-3 inches of oil. When the oil is hot enough (test by dropping in a little bit of the batter), squeeze the batter into the oil in a doughnut shape. About halfway through cooking, flip each doughnut over so they cook evenly.
Drain on a paper towel lined plate, and sprinkle with powdered sugar once they cool.
(Notes from me: This was supposed to be a muffin recipe-- 350 degrees, 20-25 minutes-- but I got started before I realized I didn't have a muffin pan available, and had to figure out something to do with all the batter! Also, I used 1 cup of blueberries and just over 1/4 cup each of diced strawberries and peaches.)
