1. Can I use frozen blueberries instead of fresh ones? Yes, you can. Make sure to thaw and drain them properly to avoid extra moisture in your dough.

2. What type of flour should I use? All-purpose flour works best for these donuts. If you’re aiming for a healthier version, you can use half whole wheat flour and half all-purpose flour.

3. Can I fry these donuts instead of baking them? Yes, you can fry them if you prefer. However, baking offers a lighter, healthier result.

Tips and Tricks:

  1. Do not overmix the dough. This will ensure your donuts remain soft and fluffy.
  2. When folding in the blueberries, be gentle to prevent them from bursting and discoloring the dough.
  3. When glazing the donuts, allow them to cool slightly first to prevent the glaze from melting off.

Why You’ll Love the Glazed Blueberry Donuts Recipe

You’re making these flavorful donuts from scratch with simple baking ingredients, such as all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, cinnamon, unsalted butter, and more. You can also follow this recipe while using other fruits, such as strawberries and raspberries.


  1. Lemon Blueberry Donuts: Add the zest of one lemon to your dough and a bit of lemon juice to your glaze for a zesty twist.
  2. Blueberry Crumble Donuts: Top your donuts with a streusel topping before baking for added crunch.
  3. Chocolate Chip Blueberry Donuts: Add a handful of mini chocolate chips to the dough for a delicious combination of blueberry and chocolate.

Where to Serve:

These blueberry donuts make a delightful addition to any breakfast or brunch spread. They’re also perfect as a sweet treat for afternoon tea, dessert, or even for a birthday party or gathering. Pair them with a cup of coffee or tea for a truly cozy experience.


Store these donuts in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, or in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can also freeze them for up to 2 months and thaw at room temperature when ready to enjoy.

It’s easy to prepare the homemade glaze to spread on top of these donuts with three simple ingredients, including powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract.

Common Problems and How to Avoid Them:

  1. Donuts are too dense: This usually happens when the dough is overmixed. Mix just until the ingredients are combined to ensure a tender crumb.
  2. Blueberries sinking to the bottom: Coat your blueberries lightly in flour before adding to the dough to prevent them from sinking.
  3. Glaze is too thin: If your glaze isn’t setting, it might be too thin. Add more powdered sugar until the desired consistency is reached.

Topping Options:

In addition to the classic glaze, consider topping your donuts with a dusting of powdered sugar, a drizzle of cream cheese frosting, or even a sprinkle of toasted coconut flakes for extra texture.

Once you’ve prepared these donuts, you can serve them fresh while they’re warm or eat them cold and at room temperature, depending on what you prefer most.

Do I need to use fresh or frozen blueberries in this recipe?

You can use fresh or frozen blueberries! It depends on what you have available. If you’re using fresh blueberries, be sure to rinse them off well before you use them. When using frozen blueberries, give them time to thaw before you add them to your batter.
