Baked Blueberry Donuts

Michelle Alley

TOTAL TIME:30 min

I love blueberry donuts...and while there is nothing wrong with a donut every once in a while, if you can make a healthier option—why not? In order to use less butter and oil, we used applesauce, instead. This ingredient also adds sweetness, so we could use less sugar, too. We also used whole wheat flour for a more nutrient-dense donut. While these are still a treat, they pack more nutrition and less calories than their store-bought counterparts.

          Directions
          1. Place the warmed milk and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer.
          2. Let rest 5 minutes.
          3. Mix in butter, applesauce, sugars, eggs, and vanilla extract until well blended.
          4. In a separate bowl, mix together baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour.
          5. Add dry mixture to wet mixture and blend until a dough forms. Fold in blueberries and let rest while oven preheats.
          6. Preheat oven to 425°F.
          7. Place dough in a greased donut pan. It should make 12 donuts.
          8. Bake for 8–10 minutes, or until donuts are formed and cooked through (a toothpick should come out clean).
          9. Cool for 2 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a cooling rack.
          10. While cooling, mix together the glaze in a shallow dish.
          11. Once fully cooled, dip the top half of the donuts in the glaze.
          12. Let glaze harden before serving. If you want them sweeter with more glaze, dip them multiple times, allowing them to set up slightly in between each dip.
