Blueberry Almond Donuts
I love these Blueberry Almond Donuts. Both the donut and the icing include almond extract. It makes these donuts spectacular. No kidding. I’ve made these donuts three or four times now and everyone always loves them. They’re very similar to my Glazed Raspberry Donuts except made with blueberries instead.
It’s not that my regular Glazed Blueberry Donuts are inferior in any way. But as it happened, I messed up that Blueberry Donuts recipe. The second time around I made it like my Raspberry Donuts instead. “My mistake” turned out so well, I decided to post it too. The almond extract adds such delicious flavor to the donuts that these had to be blogged about as well!
If you enjoy blueberries, you’ll love them in Blueberry Almond Donuts. They’re just a delightful way to enjoy donuts. Plus, these donuts are baked instead of fried. You mix the dry ingredients. Then you mix the liquid ingredients. Then you combine the ingredients and add the blueberries. That’s all there is to it. Every bite is pure bliss. 🙂
These donuts are terrific for holiday, company or weekend breakfasts. I recommend you keep them in mind for Mothers’ Day, Father’s Day or the Fourth of July. Enjoy.
Blueberry Almond Donuts are spectacular.
These donuts are so delicious. Everyone loves them.
Blueberries and almond flavoring works marvelously together.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients for the donuts.
Combine 1/3 cup flour with the blueberries. Stir and set aside for later use.
Place remaining UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour in a mixing bowl. (Bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add sugar, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
Stir ingredients well to combine. Set aside.
In another mixing bowl, combine eggs, sour cream and milk.
Whisk ingredients to combine.
Add melted butter and canola oil.
Add both almond and vanilla extracts.
Whisk ingredients again to combine.
Pour liquid mixture into dry mixture.
Stir ingredients just until combined. Don’t overmix the batter or the donuts will become tough.
Spoon donut dough into a zip lock bag. Cut off one corner of the bag.
Spray donut cavities with cooking spray. Pipe donut mixture into each cavity.
Bake donuts at 425 for about 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Allow donuts to sit in pans about 2-3 minutes. Remove donuts to cooling rack.
I used these ingredients for the icing.
Whisk to combine.
The key to the icing is to use just the right amount of milk. Too much and the icing fades into the donuts and you cannot tell you even glazed the donuts. Too little and it becomes hard to ice the donuts and they crumble apart!
Invert donut into icing. Swirl until you cover all the sides. Then allow the icing to drip off into the bowl.
Place iced donuts on a cooling rack. Some of the icing will drip down onto your surface area.
Serve Blueberry Almond Donuts with fruit or your favorite country breakfast items.
I could have eaten ten of these donuts!
