Glazed Blueberry Donuts


I'm loving all the delicious berries that are now in the stores and farmer's markets. It's hard to pass them up when they look so good.

I decided to combine my favorite vanillas donut recipes with some fresh blueberries, and they turned out to be a great combination. And there's a little less guilt for making donuts for no reason if they have healthy blueberries in them!!


 

 
Recipe for Glazed Blueberry Donuts

Ingredients:

 1 cup all purpose flour
6 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons buttermilk
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 cup fresh blueberries


Ingredients for glaze:

1/2 cup powered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 (or more as needed) tablespoons milk, heavy cream, or half & half

Directions:

 Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a donut pan with cooking spray or vegetable oil.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
Add buttermilk, eggs, vanilla extract, and melted butter. Stir to combine. Stir in blueberries. Carefully spoon batter into prepared donut pan, filling 2/3 full.
Bake 8-10 minutes, or until donuts are baked through. Allow to cool 5 minutes and remove from pan.

To make the glaze, in a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and choice of either milk, heavy cream, or half & half.
Stir until smooth, adding more tablespoons of liquid as needed. Drizzle glaze over donuts.

Makes 8 donuts.
