For the lemon blueberry donuts:

  • 1 cup (125 grams) all purpose flour (spooned & leveled)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) milk
  • 1/3 cup (65 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons (30 grams) butter , melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

For the lemon glaze:

  • 1 cup (120 grams) powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons (30-45 ml) fresh lemon juice (or milk)


To make the donuts:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 8 cavities in a donut pan (or pans) well with non-stick cooking spray. If using a 6-count donut pan, you will need to bake in separate batches. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, mix together the milk, sugar, egg, butter, lemon juice, lemon zest, and vanilla until fully combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined, making sure not to over mix the batter. Gently fold the blueberries into the batter.
  • Evenly distribute the batter between all 8 cavities of the prepared donut pan (a piping bag or spoon works well).
  • Bake at 350°F for 9-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the donut comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes, then invert onto a wire rack to cool.

To make the glaze:

  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice until well combined. Add more lemon juice to thin out the glaze or add more powdered sugar to thicken the glaze as needed.
  • Place a piece of foil under the wire rack with the donuts to catch any glaze. Dip each donut into the glaze and place onto the wire rack. Allow the glaze to harden for a few minutes, then serve, and enjoy!
