Click video to play:
Preheat oven to 350°F.
TIP: We love silicone donut pans because your finished donuts pop right out! If you’re using metal pans, be sure to coat with cooking spray first.
In a large mixing bowl, sift together dry ingredients, except sugar.
In your stand mixer bowl, combine sugar and wet ingredients. Blend, gradually adding dry ingredients to the batter. Continue mixing until fully incorporated.
TIP: For lactose-free version of the donuts, swap out the buttermilk with 1 cup buttermilk and 1 TB vinegar (to get that tang).
Stir blueberries into batter by hand, then spoon batter into your prepared donut pan – about 3/4 of the way full. You can use a metal pan, or Silicone donut pans like we used in our video. The donuts pop right out of the silicone molds!
TIP: Wild blueberries are often used in baked goods because they are smaller and “spread” out less when cooked. Traditional cultivated blueberries are larger and juicier, so they take up more real estate in your donut. Feel free to use whichever variety you prefer!
Bake for 17-20 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean).
Allow to cool for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to glaze.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice until well combined.
Place a piece of foil under the wire rack with the donuts to catch any glaze. Pour glaze directly from the bowl onto the donuts until well coated.
Top with a sprinkle of lemon zest.
