Food for Thought – Blueberry Doughnut Holes with Blueberry Glaze

This morning, I woke up and only thought one thing: it’s time to make the donuts.

I saw a recipe for these and was so excited to give them a try. Baking new things means finding new favorites and I’m all for new favorites.

Give them a try and let me know what you think!

2 cups of flour

3/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup buttermilk (fun fact: if you don’t have butter milk, use 1/2 cup milk stirred with 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice and let it sit for 5 minutes)

2 tablespoons vanilla Greek yogurt

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon melted butter

3/4 cup blueberries

For blueberry glaze:

3/4 cup blueberries

2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons melted butter

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F
  • Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.
  • In another mixing bowl, combine buttermilk, vanilla Greek yogurt, eggs and vanilla.
  • Pour both mixes together and beat with a hand mixer.
  • Gently fold in blueberries.IMG_1659
  • Pour into greased doughnut hole or doughnut pan about 3/4 of the way to the top of each indentation.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes
  • For the glaze, blend together blueberries and powdered sugar in food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
  • Pour into small mixing bowl, add lemon juice and butter and then use a hand mixer until glaze is thick and smoothIMG_1660

Once the doughnut holes are out and cooled, dump each doughnut hole into the glaze and set out to let dry.

This mixture makes about 40 doughnut holes, but you can always halve –or double!– the recipe if need be.

Enjoy the treats and until next time,
