  • 1 cup all-purpose white flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder Double acting.
  • teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter Melted and cooled.
  • ½ cup blueberries You can use fresh or frozen. If using frozen, measure out ¾ cup.

Glaze (optional)

  • 1⅓ cup powdered sugar Powdered sugar is also known as confectioner's sugar.
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter Melted
  • tablespoon heavy cream You can substitute whole milk.
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract



  • Preheat oven to 400 F (204 C).
  • Using a fine mesh strainer, sift flour, baking power, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Set aside.
    1 cup all-purpose white flour, ½ teaspoon baking powder, ⅛ teaspoon baking soda, ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Add buttermilk, sugar, vanilla, egg, and butter to a blender and blend on low speed for about 30 seconds. Alternatively, you can add these ingredients to a medium bowl and whisk or mix with an electric mixer until frothy.
    ¼ cup buttermilk, ½ cup granulated sugar, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 large egg, 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry and stir until no flour streaks remain. Do not overmix.
  • Add ¼ cup of the blueberries to a small bowl and carefully crush with the back of a fork. Take care because the juice tends to splatter. If using frozen blueberries, measure out a little more than ¼ cup, thaw, then crush.
    Stir crushed blueberries into the batter.
    ½ cup blueberries
  • Gently fold remaining blueberries into the batter.
    If using frozen berries, keep frozen.
  • Spoon mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large round tip (tip #1A - about ½ inch diameter).
    If you don't have a piping bag and tip, you can instead add the batter to a gallon zip lock food storage bag, seal it, and snip off one corner with scissors.
  • Spray donut pan with baking spray. Pipe batter into donut cavities, filling each about ¾ full. Two turns inside each cavity should be enough.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted toward the center comes out clean. Oven temperatures vary so begin to check for doneness at 20 minutes.
  • Let cool in pan for several minutes. Then invert donuts onto a wire rack to cool.


  • In a small shallow bowl, combine powdered sugar, butter, cream, and vanilla extract. Thin as necessary with more cream.
