Glazed Blueberry Donuts

Blueberry Buttermilk Cake Donuts #recipe by bunsinmyoven.com

Thank you, baby Jesus, for Netflix.

I spent last Monday through Friday laid out on my couch, huddled under an old comforter, dripping snot (I’m sorry, but it’s true), and hacking up a lung.  It was just a cold, not the dreaded flu, so I guess I can consider myself lucky. I watched the entire first season (20 whole hours) of The Lying Game, which by the way, is totally a teeny bopper show. Not a 30 year old married mother of two show. But, I persevered. Any other Lying Game watchers out there?

In between all of the lazing around, napping, and television watching I managed to do quite a bit of baking. Now, yeah, I know. It’s kind of gross to bake when you’re sick, but I figured the heat killed all of the germs. Google told me it was true and we all know the Internet can’t lie.

These little donuts seemed like a good idea, because blueberries are total health food and when you’re sick you need health food. It would basically be irresponsible of me not to eat each and every one of these donuts myself.

They’re soft and cakey with little bursts of blueberry goodness throughout. I glazed them in a simple powdered sugar glaze, because I’m sorry, but it’s not a donut if it’s not covered in sugar.

Glazed Blueberry Donuts

Yield: 6 donuts

Ingredients:

For the donuts:
1 cup flour
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup buttermilk (or regular milk with a teaspoon of white vinegar added)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons oil
1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
For the glaze:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk or water
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:

To make the donuts:
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a donut pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt.
In a small bowl, stir together the butter milk, egg, vanilla and oil.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir with a wooden spoon until fully incorporated.
Fold in the blueberries, trying not to break them up too much.
Fill the donut pan and bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through.
Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
To make the glaze:
Sift the powdered sugar (I usually just whisk it really good to break up any clumps) and place in a small bowl.
Stir in the milk and vanilla until fully combined.
When the donuts are cool, dunk the tops of the donuts in the glaze.
Return the donuts to the wire rack for 5 minutes to let the glaze set.

    Truer words have never been spoken.

    Those donuts look absolutely yummy!! although I am not sure what a donut pan is, I am wondering if a muffin pan will fit the bill as well (minus the hole in the middle I am guessing) As for watching the Lying game, I looked it up on UTube and even though I am waaaaaaaay past the age of 30, I would love to watch (it’s not televised here) it even though it is a tweeny love story…you could always dream what your past could have been!!! Hey I still love to watch cartoons be it the cat in the hat or the man in the yellow hat with my granddaughter or even by myself!!! take care of that cold!!!

    Glad you were feeling up to making donuts…that would likely cure you of your ills! Or at least make you forget about them! They’re beautiful…and I just happen to have buttermilk on hand for something else I just made…hmmm….. :)

    Love these blueberry donuts! I haven’t seen The Lying Game…but I do have a few guilty pleasure shows that most 30 year old self-respecting women wouldn’t admit too. :)

    I’m making the recipe right now for my hubby’s birthday and saw that too – you mention butter but the ingredient list says oil. Also – you don’t mention adding vanilla to the wet ingredients. I’m assuming that’s when it’s added – crossing my fingers these come out amazing as I love baking donuts :)

    Hi Brenda!

    I’m so sorry about that. I modified this recipe from my cinnamon donuts and just copied and pasted the instructions without changing that information! You’re correct that the vanilla gets added to the wet ingredients and the butter should be oil. Off to fix that now!

    Hope your husband enjoys his birthday treat!

    thank you so much Karly – my hubby loved them!!!! As did our 6 year old daughter who gobbled hers right down {had to convert the recipe to be gluten free for her and dairy free with rice milk + vinegar for me}

    I don’t have a donut pan (I can easily go get one, but why waste the money if i could use something else) Could you use something like a muffin pan more them?

    Think I can top your Lying Game confession. Maybe a little ashamed to say, I, too watched the first season on Netflix while recovering from illness. I am a forty-year-old mother of four ADDICTED to watching Pretty Little Liars with my sixteen-year-old (sometimes without her when she goes back to her boarding school). Nice to know I’m not alone!
