Vegan Blueberry Donuts

I seem to always have a stock of frozen fruit in. I'm always making smoothies or brownies with them, and I went through a phase (who remembers?) of making donuts on the regular, so I figured why not have a go at combining the two?! That is how I landed on these vegan blueberry donuts - soft fluffy dough with a fruit surprise, what's not to love?!

I understand that the way I make donuts may not be the traditional way, instead of deep frying them in oil I choose to bake them. Being fully honest with you, the reason I do this is because I really really do not like frying things. I hate how to oil spits, how much waste comes from using a big glob (is that a word?) of oil and just the overall smell it fills your kitchen with. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy a donut from a proper bakery (when I can find the Co-op vegan ones!) that has been fried, but I find these baked donuts so much easier to make and just as delicious.

As always, if you make these donuts, don't forget to tag me on Instagram so I can see!  

Vegan Blueberry Donuts

Total time: 45 Minutes Plus Cooling Time
Yield: 9 Donuts

  • 170g Plain Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 150ml Dairy-Free Milk
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tsp Lemon Juice
  • 100g Frozen Blueberries
  • 100g Icing Sugar
  • 25ml Cold Water
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180ยบ celsius. If necessary, grease your donut pan (I Used these silicone ones, so no greasing was necessary!).
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Fold in the milk, vanilla extract and lemon juice, stirring lightly until combined.
  4. Stir through the frozen blueberries.
  5. Transfer your mixture to a piping bag - top tip, put your piping bag into a pint glass, then fill it up, this makes it easier to pour the mixture in!
  6. Pipe the mixture into the donut pan, filling each donut hole about half full.
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the donuts have risen and turned golden.
  8. Leave to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack, turning the donuts over so the bottom side doesn't get soggy as they cool.
  9. When the donuts are fully cooled begin making the icing. Sieve the icing sugar, then stir in the water and mix until a smooth, thick icing is formed (you may not need all the water, just add it in gradually!).
  10. Drizzle the icing over the donuts and enjoy!
