  • Ingredients
  • Oil for frying
  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 5 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/2 c. buttermilk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 c. fresh blueberries
  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp. milk


  1. In one bowl, combine all the dry ingredients ( flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt). Whisk together and set aside. In a separate bowl mix together the butter, buttermilk, lightly beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Begin to combine the wet ingredients interchangeably with the dry ingredients to make sure that all ingredients are well incorporated. Using your hands mix the blueberries with dough until all blueberries has been added into the batter.
  2. Lightly flour a baking sheet and turn the batter on the baking sheet and press until it reaches about 1/2 inch thickness and place in the freezer for 20 minutes. Turn the batter on a lightly floured surface and roll out so the dough reaches 1/2 inch thickness. With a doughnut cutter, begin cutting out the doughnuts so when the oil is ready you can just drop them in and remove them when they are finished instead of having to go back and forth. Remove the completed doughnuts and take the rest of the dough and repeat the process until all dough has been cut.
  3. Preheat oil to 350 degrees. Once the grease is hot begin to drop the doughnut in the oil and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes. It won’t take long for them to cook. Once they finish cooking , remove them with a slotted spoon and place them on top of paper towels and allow them to cool. Repeat this process until all the doughnuts have been cooked.
  4. Whisk all of the ingredients for the glaze until it turns thick glaze. If you need more milk add a tablespoon until you have reached the desired consistency. Dip the doughnuts into the glaze and turn them to a cooling rack. Repeat the process until all doughnut have been dipped.
