How To Make Baked Blueberry Donuts
- Whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Then set the flour mixture aside.
- Stir the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter in a small bowl.
- Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and then carefully fold in the blueberries.
- Transfer the donut batter into a piping bag and pipe the batter into the generously greased donut pan (I used these ones). Tapping the pan on the countertop or table to help the batter distribute evenly.
- Bake the donuts in the oven at 350 degrees F.
- Cool the donuts for 5 minutes in the pan. Then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
- Whisk together the powdered sugar and mashed blueberries to make the glaze.
- Dip the donuts in the glaze and return them to the cooling rack to set.
- Garnish with sprinkles and more blueberries if desired!
How To Store Blueberry Donuts
These donuts are enjoyed best when they’re eaten the same day they’re made! If you don’t think all of the donuts will be eaten I recommend only glazing what you think will be eaten.
Store these Baked Blueberry Donuts in an airtight container or storage bags with the excess air squeezed out. You can store them at room temperature for up to 2 days or in the refrigerator for up to a week.
These donuts can also be frozen for up to 3 months! Just save glazing them until you thaw them and are ready to enjoy.
Can I Reheat These Donuts?
Yes! Reheat them in a toaster oven on medium heat to allow them to crisp up a bit. Then allow them to cool and cover them with glaze!
If you prefer a softer donut you can skip reheating the donut and just glaze them!
How Do I Thin The Glaze For These Donuts Out?
To thin the blueberry glaze out just add in a drop of water a time until it reaches your desired consistency. For a thicker glaze you can add more powdered sugar.

Baked Blueberry Donuts
- 1½ cups powdered sugar
- 3 teaspoons mashed blueberries
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a donut pan and set aside.
- Whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl and set aside.
- In a measuring cup or small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and melted butter.
- Combine wet ingredients with dry until just combined with a rubber spatula, then fold in blueberries.
- Transfer the donut batter to a disposable piping bag and pipe into the greased donut pan circling twice to fill (about ⅔ full). Tap the pan on a countertop or table to evenly distribute the batter.
- Bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Allow donuts to cool for 5 minutes in the pan and then invert onto a cooling rack to fully cool!
- Prepare the glaze while donuts are cooling. In a medium deep bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and mashed blueberries.
- Dip the tops of the donuts in the glaze and return to a cooling rack with a cookie sheet underneath to set. Garnish with sprinkles and additional blueberries if desired!
- Be sure to generously grease the donut pan especially around the middle where it tends to stick! Remove them right after the 5 minute cooling period. If you only have one donut pan, simply wipe out the pan after it has cooled for 5 minutes with a paper towel, re-grease, and pipe in the remaining batter.
- If using frozen blueberries for the glaze, give them some time to thaw before making the glaze. Use a fork to mash them and release all of the juices. It makes a gorgeous color for the glaze. If the glaze is too thick add a drop of water at a time until you reach the desired consistency, if it’s too thin and runny add more powdered sugar.
- Once donuts are glazed, place them on a cooling rack with a cookie sheet underneath to catch the excess glaze that drips off. You can also put a piece of wax paper or parchment paper under the tray for easy disposable clean-up!
- These donuts are best consumed on the day they are made. If you don’t think they will all be eaten, I recommend only glazing what you think you will eat. Keep the remaining donuts in an airtight container. When you are ready to eat them, reheat them in a toaster oven on a toast setting for 3 minutes on a medium heat setting (this will crisp them up a bit). Allow them to cool and then glaze as per the recipe. If you are ok with a softer texture then there is no need to reheat just glaze as normal.
