I have one word… ok, maybe two. Absolutely. Yum.

Do they need that extra drizzle of glaze? No, they honestly don’t. But I felt indulgent that day and I couldn’t help myself. Plus… they look so pretty dressed up.

And if you’re only going to have one… well, it’s ok. The trick is keeping it to one!

Blueberries

One of my favorite activities in the summer is blueberry picking. I adore the large, juicy berries we grow in the Northwest.

And I’m always making something with them, from muffins to cobblers, scones, coffee cakes, waffles, custards, bread, crostatas, crisps, pies, smoothies, and more.

Even, an Amish Baked Oatmeal.

At this moment I still have two gallons of frozen blueberries in the freezer that I’m using in everything until our berries ripen. It’s a delicious project!

What You Need to Make Baked Donuts

There are only a couple of tools you need to make these Blueberry Donuts. Otherwise, you can bake the batter in a 12-cup muffin tin for delicious blueberry muffins that taste like donuts!

  • Baked Donut Pan (Mine is Wilton — Amazon link)
  • Ziplock bag or pastry bag (not strictly necessary but makes it easier)

How to Make Baked Blueberry Donuts

Preheat the oven to 350° F and grease two 6-cup donut pans (or a 12-cup muffin pan).

Using one bowl, whisk the oil, milk, yogurt, egg, vanilla, and sugar until combined. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, and cinnamon. Then, stir in the blueberries.

Spoon the batter into a ziplock bag (or pastry bag) and snip the corner off. Pipe the batter into the donut pan filling each cavity to 2/3. Bake for 10 minutes.

Let cool before gently releasing the donuts onto a rack to cool. I like to run a knife around the edges as sometimes the berries can stick to the pan.

Once cooled, dip or brush melted butter over the donuts and toss in cinnamon sugar.

If you’re feeling indulgent, drizzle a bit of glaze over the top.
