                    ⏱ Prep Time: 15 minutes | 🔥 Cook Time: 30 minutes | 🍽 Serving: 24 donuts


  • Stick butter 1/3
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Kosher salt a pinch
  • Sugar 1 cup
  • All-purpose flour 2 cups
  • Cake flour 1 cup
  • Pure vanilla extract 1 tsp
  • Baking powder 2 tsp
  • Frozen blueberries, thawed 2 cups
  • Extra-large eggs 2
  • Egg yolk 1
  • Baking soda 1 tsp
  • Buttermilk 1 cup

Basic Sugar Glaze

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • Pinch of kosher salt


  1. Grab a doughnut pan and a piping bag.
  2. Spray the doughnut pans with cooking oil liberally and preheat the oven to 350°F.
  3. Cream the butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment until it becomes light and fluffy.
  4. Combine the flour (cake flour and all-purpose flour), baking soda, and baking powder in a separate basin.
  5. Blend the eggs and yolk in the mixer properly.
  6. The flour mixture and buttermilk should be added in stages of four to six, alternately, while mixing on medium-low and often scraping sides.
  7. After the additions are complete, reduce the mixer’s speed to its lowest position, add the blueberries carefully, and mix just long enough to incorporate them evenly and tint the batter a pleasing shade of blue.
  8. Each well in the pans should be roughly two-thirds full after adding the batter to a big piping bag.
  9. For standard doughnuts, bake for 18 to 20 minutes; for small doughnuts, bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the dough springs back when poked.
  10. All the ingredients of the glaze should be combined and whisked together in a large bowl. If the liquid is too thick, add milk. If it’s too thin, add powdered sugar.
  11. When the glaze is cool, dip the doughnuts in it and shake off the extra. Put them on a wire rack so the glaze will adhere to them and you get a small bit of crunch on the exterior.
