Baked Blueberry Donuts

Donuts might be one of the simplest but tastiest baked goods you can enjoy. We’ve got our fair share of donut places around us- we can take a short drive over to Dunkin Donuts or go a little further out to an actual Krispy Kreme location! These places serve up great, classic donuts… but not everyone has a good donut shop near them. That’s where delicious, homemade donuts come in!

How to make Blueberry Donuts

Making baked donuts is very easy. For our Baked Blueberry Donuts, here’s all you need to do:
  1. Combine dry and wet ingredients separately before mixing them into a donut batter.
  2. Pour batter into prepared donut pan until molds are half-full. Add blueberries to each donut and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
  3. Mix up a quick lemon glaze and then dip cooled donuts into the glaze to coat.

Whisking dry donut ingredients

Like many baked recipes, our donuts start with prepping our wet and dry ingredients separately. In one mixing bowl, whisk together your flour, baking powder, and salt. In another, mix the wet ingredients- the milk, sugar, egg, butter, and vanilla.

Mixing wet ingredients

To make sure all our dry ingredients mix in with the wet, add the dry stuff in gradually- a heavy dash at a time. Keep adding and mixing until the wet and dry ingredients have just combined- don’t over mix or you’ll get some tough donuts!

Adding dry ingredients to wet ingredients

Once that batter comes together, we can add it to our donut pan. Spray your pan down with some cooking spray first then pour your batter until each donut mold is about half-way full. We want to leave some room so we can drop in about 4-5 blueberries into each mold.

Transfer your filled donut pan to an awaiting 350 degree oven. They’ll need around 9-10 minutes to bake fully. To check for doneness, poke with a toothpick: if it pulls clean, your donuts are baked! Let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before moving to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.

How to make lemon glaze

Your Blueberry Donuts are ready to eat once they’ve cooled but they’ll taste amazing if you hit them with a lemon glaze. To make a lemon glaze, all you need is that powdered sugar, and some lemon juice- freshly squeezed or bottled is fine. Start off by just adding 2 tbsp of the juice to the sugar- this will give you a thick glaze. If it’s too thick for you, just add more lemon juice- little by little- until you reach your desired consistency. Once you’ve got a glaze that you like, dip one side of the donuts into it then transfer them to a wire rack over some paper towels. After the glaze sets, enjoy your donuts!
