Recipe from So Sweet! by Sur La Table (Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2011)

ImageBlueberries may seem unusual in a doughnut, but paired with this refreshing orange glaze you will find it's the perfect combination of tart and sweet! These are a healthier doughnut because they are baked instead of fried, but you will need either a standard-size doughnut pan or a standard-size mini doughnut pan for baking these.

Makes 16 large or 64 mini doughnuts


  • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange zest

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and position an oven rack in the center. Lightly coat the doughnut pans with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Make the doughnuts. In a large bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and orange zest with a whisk. Melt the butter in a small pot over low heat and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the melted butter, buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla with a whisk until foamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir with a large wooden spoon until completely combined. Gently fold in the blueberries until just combined. Do not overmix. Using a pastry bag fitted with a 1-inch round tip, divide the batter equally (using even pressure) between the pans, filling about halfway full. Alternatively, you can use a gallon-sized resealable plastic storage bag. Fill the bag and using scissors, remove 1 inch from one of the bottom corners and proceed with filling the pans as described above.

3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the doughnuts spring back when lightly touched. Remove from the oven, invert the doughnuts onto a rack, and allow to cool completely.

4. Make the glaze. In a medium bowl, combine the powdered sugar, orange juice, and orange zest with a whisk, mixing until smooth.

5. Glaze the doughnuts. Dip the top of each doughnut into the glaze and lift, allowing the excess to drip back into the bowl. Place the doughnuts on a platter and serve. These doughnuts are best served fresh.
