Do you love the taste of warm, fresh donuts, but hate the oily mess that comes with frying them?

These baked blueberry streusel donuts are fluffy and light because they’re baked and not fried!

They’re moist and tangy, thanks to some buttermilk, and bursting with fresh and juicy blueberries, all topped with a crunchy and sugary streusel topping. 

Baking donuts instead of frying them eliminates having to deal with a pot of hot oil and leaves your house smelling like a delectable bakery.

And the best part is, they’re super easy to whip together! 

Trust me, once you try these baked blueberry streusel donuts, you’ll never go back to fried.

For donuts: 

  • All-purpose flour – A common baking ingredient that will make up the batter for our donuts.
  • Granulated sugar – Granulated sugar will add sweetness to the donuts.

  • Buttermilk – Buttermilk will give the donuts a moist and tender crumb, with a slight tanginess.
  • Melted butter – Butter will add moisture to the donuts. 
  • Egg – The egg will help emulsify the batter so that all of the ingredients are blended together.
  • Blueberries –  Fresh is best! Blueberries will give little bursts of sweet berry flavor throughout the donut.

Using frozen berries

If you can’t find fresh blueberries for these baked blueberry streusel donuts, you can substitute them with frozen ones!

Frozen berries are a great alternative because they’re flash-frozen at the peak of ripeness, so they’ll always be sweet and full of flavor.

More stuff about freezing

You can also freeze these donuts for later!

Bake as directed, and let the donuts cool completely.

Then simply wrap them in plastic wrap, and then a layer of aluminum foil, and pop them into the freezer for up to 2 months.

To eat from frozen, just let them thaw at room temp!
