Donut with cream sauce with cranberries and lemon icing

A donut with cream in the dough, extremely soft, scented with lemon and cranberry glaze and with so many sugary note: ideal for making your breakfast and start the day right, especially on weekends, When we are more relaxed. This donut does not contain butter or oil, but it's made from cream. The basic recipe of the dough I was suggested by Simonetta, part blog Glu-Fri, one day when I had some cream to be disposed of: the cake went like hot cakes and I didn't even have time to photograph. Now I've redone shaped donut, but by enriching the mixture with a little’ lemon peel, blueberries, brown sugar and I frosted with lemon icing and icing sugar. Exquisite! I made the cake with plain flour, but there is the recipe blog gluten by Simonetta, so none of you have no excuse not to make this cake!

Hi Monica! Thank you for the compliments! You did well to put the chocolate: the basic recipe for this cake is suitable for each type of customization: the first time I did this I put marshmallows and nuts, but they're great fruit, chocolate, jams. And you can also vary the shape and make muffins, cakes, Loaf pan…. Hail Sicily! ADA
