Blueberry Baked Donuts

I’m never going to get over baked donuts. They are so simple and easily one of my favorite things to bake. I hope y’all never get tired of them either! These Blueberry Baked Donuts were a huuuuge hit in my house. I made the first batch, but they were hideous, so I had to do some more recipe testing. My husband ate almost all of them and made sure to tell me to save some for him when I made the next batch.

These Blueberry Baked Donuts are super moist, so they take a little longer to bake than my other baked donut recipe, but they’re worth the wait. They honestly taste a lot like blueberry muffin tops, AKA the best part of the muffin, so if you’re a blueberry muffin fan you’re going to loooove these!

You can find my other donut recipes here! You’re going to need a mold for these donuts. I HIGHLY recommend these silicone molds. They’re cheap and great quality. I prefer silicone over metal because it makes it so much easier to get the donuts out of the molds and they’re really easy to clean without worrying about them rusting.

Ingredients

For Donuts:

  • 1 cup (120 grams) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (107 grams) light brown sugar packed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup (114 grams) full-fat sour cream

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup (170 grams) blueberries

For Glaze:

  • 1 cup (113 grams) powedered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk

Instructions

For Donuts:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray your donut mold with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the flour, light brown sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  • In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients together. Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  • Fold in the blueberries.
  • Spoon the batter into the donut pan. Bake the donuts into the pre-heated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until they spring back when lightly pressed.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then remove from pan and allow to cool completely before glazing.

  • In a small bowl combine all of the ingredients and whisk until free of lumps.
  • Add more milk if the glaze is too thick.
  • Dip the tops of the donuts in the glaze.

Blueberry Baked Donuts

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray your donut mold (I use this one) with non-stick spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the flour, light brown sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients, make sure the melted butter has cooled or it will curdle the sour cream and cook the egg. Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until they are well combined. The dough will be much thicker than you think it will be, so don’t be alarmed. Also, be sure not to overmix your dough or your donuts will be tough.
  4. Fold in the blueberries.
  5. Next, you will spoon the batter into your molds and fill them up to the top. If you’re using a silicone mold, place it on a cookie sheet before you put them in the oven, this will make it easier to get them in and out of the oven.
  6. Place your donuts in the pre-heated oven. They usually take about 20-25 minutes to bake, but I started checking them around 10 minutes to see if the pan needs to be turned. You’ll know they are finished when you lightly press on a donut and it springs back.
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool in the molds until cool enough to remove. Then cool completely before glazing
Vanilla Glaze
  1. In a small bowl combine all of the ingredients and whisk until free of lumps.
  2. The glaze should be pretty thin and runny, so if it is too thick you can add more milk to thin it out.
  3. Dip the tops of the donuts in the glaze.
