I have an addiction: buying bakeware, cookware and anything else kitchen-related. So, I treated myself to some brand new doughnut pans over the summer, and boy, they are such a great investment! I got two large pans that make 6 large doughnuts each, and one mini pan that makes a dozen mini doughnuts, so all of my doughnut making dreams could become a reality! After traveling throughout France and Italy this summer, it was nice to return home and get back to reality by baking. When I was contemplating what I could bring a bunch of teachers on the first day of work, my new doughnut pans sprung to mind and I knew that it would be a hit!
These Baked Blueberry Lemon Glazed Doughnuts are absolutely delicious. They are a classic cake doughnut that is springy and moist, scented with lemon and dotted with juicy blueberries. The tart, lemony glaze keeps the moisture in the doughnuts and gives them the doughnut shop shine! These doughnuts are so delicious with a cup of fresh coffee or a glass of ice cold milk. I think Homer would be in heaven!
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 tsp grated lemon zest
- 1 cup plain greek yogurt
- 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 2 cups powdered icing sugar
- 1-2 tsp lemon zest
- 7-8 tbsp fresh lemon juice or milk
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and grease your doughnut pans with butter or non-stick spray.
- In a large bowl, combine butter, oil and sugar and whisk until smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
- Add in eggs, vanilla, lemon zest and yogurt and whisk until smooth.
- Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and whisk just until combined. Stir in blueberries. Batter will be thick.
- Spoon batter into a large disposable piping bag or freezer bag. Cut off the end of the bag so your opening is about ½-3/4” wide (big enough for the blueberries to get through). Pipe batter once around each doughnut hole – the batter shouldn’t quite fill the hole as they’ll expand and rise.
- Bake for 7-8 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes before removing from the doughnut pan to cool completely.
- In a shallow, medium bowl, combine sugar, zest, and 6 tbsp of juice or milk. Add an additional 1-2 tbsp of liquid if needed. You want your glaze to be thin enough to evenly coat your doughnuts, but thick enough that it will set and become dry to the tough.
- When doughnuts are completely cool, dip tops of doughnuts into the glaze and overturn so the glaze runs down the sides. Set aside for the glaze to set.
