Hooray! It’s the weekend and I’m so happy! What better way to celebrate the weekend than with these delicious donuts!

If you’re a donut lover like I am, then you’ll enjoy these Vegan Lemon Raspberry Glazed Doughnuts and Vegan Vanilla Donuts with Sprinkles which are just as perfect as their Blueberry counterparts. Yum! Just thinking about these donuts makes me want to grab one right now. Haha.

If you’ve been following this blog, then you’ll know that I haven’t gone down the complex route of deep frying my doughnuts like most places, however, baked doughnuts have not disappointed me at all thus far!

I actually prefer them baked because it’s minus all that excess oil. But hey, I’m not opposed to trying donut holes in the upcoming days or weeks.

Doughnut holes are actually my ultimate favorite types of donuts (especially on a lazy day!).

You just pick up a ball of doughnut and eat away until you’re done. No worries about holding it or biting it at the right angle like a classic doughnut.

However, I’d like to continue to make a few more doughnut flavors before moving on to those doughnut holes.

Plus, I can’t make doughnuts and not make the classic “glazed doughnut”, right? Oooh, I’ll be doing that soon!

Speaking of Donut holes, I plan of making a few batches soon as I’ve recently purchased the baking pan. Yay! Super excited!

Per usual, there weren’t that many ingredients in this recipe as most doughnuts don’t require much unless you choose a really complex flavor.

You simply sift the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl, while whisking the wet ingredients in another bowl, before later combining everything.

For the blueberry flavor, I like to use frozen blueberries since they’re really convenient.

Granted, you can always use fresh blueberries if preferred, however, I chose to save them for the glaze so that I could create a nicely colored top.

Now time for the recipe!

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and spray your doughnut baking pan (that has 6-wells).

  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt.

  3. In a separate mixing bowl, add the unsweetened coconut milk and apple cider vinegar, whisking together well and letting it sit for 2 minutes (to activate ingredients). Then add the maple syrup, vegetable oil (or coconut oil), vanilla extract, lemon juice, and mix well again. Finally, stir in the dry ingredients until everything is just well combined. Now, gently fold in the blueberries using a spatula.

  4. Spoon the batter into a plastic ziploc bag (or piping bag), cutting the tip and pipping it into prepared doughnut pan. **NOTE: be sure to only fill each well at the half-way point to avoid donuts from baking to largely.**

  5. Bake donuts for 16-18 minutes or until golden brown and then let them cool for 5 minutes. Lastly, turn them out onto a cooling rack so that they continue to cool completely.

Blueberry Glaze:

  1. To make glaze, combine the blueberries and powdered sugar in a blender and blend until smooth and desired consistency is met. If more thickness is needed, add additional powdered sugar (1 Tbsp at a time). Add to a medium bowl and set aside (preferably in the refrigerator) until ready to use.

  2. Once cooled, dip in prepared blueberry glaze and serve.

  3. Bon Appetite!

Tips & Tricks

BLUEBERRIES: If using frozen blueberries, be sure to lightly toss them in 1Tbsp of flour or arrowroot starch before adding them to batter. This reduces any excess water from the blueberries and allows bread to cook thoroughly.
SWEETENER: If you choose to opt out of pure maple syrup, you can always substitute with Agave as well.
OIL: Instead of vegetable oil, you can also use coconut oil, if preferred.
FLOUR: If you want your donuts to be more of a ‘cakey’ texture, substitute 1 cup of All-purpose flour with Super-Fine Cake Flour. 
STORAGE: Can be stored in a tightly sealed container and best if placed in the refrigerator for up to 3 days for ultimate freshness.
