Cakey, homemade donuts stuffed with fresh, juicy blueberries and dunked in a lemon glaze.
I recently bought a donut pan, which means I have been making a LOT of donuts. Remember these baked cinnamon and sugar donuts from a few weeks back. Seriously, one of my favorite recipes this year! And what haven’t I put blueberries in yet?!?! Between cookies, ice cream, and muffins – they have been my go to fruit of choice. So her comes the perfect marriage. Dum dum da dum… Glazed Blueberry Donuts! These donuts start off with delicious dough that is stuffed full of blueberries. I mean so many blueberries you start to wonder if there is any dough in there. When mixing in the blueberries you have to be a little cautious of breaking them. A few here or there is not a big deal, but the more you break the wetter your dough is going to get and the tougher it is going to be to handle. If you do break quite a few (it happens…. I did it the first time I made this recipe), just add a little extra flour to make the dough workable. I also found it easier to push the dough flat with my hands to get to the right thickness, rather than using a rolling pin. Once you get the dough all spread out, simply cut with a donut cutter (you could also use biscuit cutter or a glass or whatever makes a circle) and start dropping into your hot oil. I cooked two to three at a time just so I could easily keep an eye on each one. For the first batch, I just cooked one and cut it open so that I could make sure I had my timing right. After your donuts have been fried, let them cool on a wire rack till just cool enough to handle and then dip in your delicious, lemon glaze. Now you have a whole batch of glazed blueberry donuts at your disposal – such a delicious treat for any time of day!
