Glazed Blackberry Donuts
Glazed Blackberry Donuts are delightful! There’s just something about homemade donuts. Not only are they fun to make, they are so tempting to the taste buds. These Blackberry Donuts are very simply done with nothing exotic. However, they are sure huge on taste. Most of the time, our guests have not been able to limit themselves to just one of these luscious donuts.
I’ve made this recipe several times since January. Every time I serve these donuts they are a hit! The first time I made them for John’s office. I sent out a couple of batches of these donuts along with Glazed Buttermilk and Glazed Chocolate Donuts. We heard from a lot of people saying how much they enjoyed the donuts. I made them again for our Friday night care group. (We had breakfast for dinner). Everyone exclaimed over them. Our college group also got to sample these delicious goodies and they raved over them as well. One of the college girls actually helped me make them. She wanted to learn how to make donuts. ….I love teaching people how to cook.
I’ve made these using whole blackberries as well as cutting the blackberries in half or thirds. My only recommendation is that you pat them really, really dry before stirring the blackberries into the donut dough. Also, I found it better to mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients about half way before actually adding the blackberries. That way, the dough didn’t get discolored from the blackberries.
If you want a delicious breakfast treat, Glazed Blackberry Donuts should be on the menu. These donuts rock! Every bite is heavenly. In under an hour you can have (and enjoy) the best breakfast ever. 🙂
Glazed Blackberry Donuts are such a wonderful treat!
Blackberries are perfect in donuts!
Glazed Blackberry Donuts are terrific or a holiday, company or weekend breakfast.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Place UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour in a mixing bowl. (Bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
Stir ingredients well to combine. Set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, add eggs, sour cream and milk.
Whisk ingredients to combine.
Add melted butter and canola oil.
Add vanilla extract.
Whisk again to combine.
Pour liquid mixture into dry mixture.
Add blackberries. Make sure they are patted really dry. If you cut the blackberries, add them in after you’ve mixed the ingredients about half way done.
Stir only until combined. Do not overmix the batter or the donuts will be tough. Spoon mixture into a zip lock bag. Cut off one corner.
Spray donut cavities with cooking spray. Pipe dough into donut cavities.
Bake at 425 for about 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
After two to three minutes, remove donuts to a cooling rack.
I used these ingredients to make the icing.
Whisk ingredients to combine. Use only as much milk as necessary. If the icing is too thin the glaze will evaporate into the donuts. If the icing is too thick the donuts will crumble apart when you try to dip and swirl them.
Invert donut into icing. Swirl donut in icing until all of the top is covered. Allow the excess icing to drip back into the bowl.
Place donuts on a cooling rack until the icing dries. This will take about 10 minutes. Some of the glaze will drip off onto the surface area.
Glazed Blackberry Donuts will have you salivating after the first bite. 🙂
