Blueberry Lemon donuts 2.0

Hello friends!
Happy Good Friday!

Today I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger and  Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama for a recipe revamp themed week!

Spring is in full swing here in Texas! You can tell because everything is covered in a layer of pollen!

A few days ago I was craving a yummy treat I made last year, and I really wanted one again! This time I decided to revamp the recipe and make it dairy free!

If you are good with eating dairy, you can see the previous recipe here!

Ingredients

 

  • 1 cup + 1 TBSP gluten free flour
  • 1 teaspoon aluminum free baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 1 large egg
  • ⅓ cup almond milk
  • ⅓ cup raw sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 wild blueberries (the smaller the better)

Lemon Glaze:

  • 1 C organic powdered sugar, sifted
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Blueberry Glaze

  • 2 Tbsp lemon glaze
  • 1/4 cup blueberries

 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350* F. Coat a large donut pan. (Reapply oil after each batch)
  2. In a large bowl, sift together 1 1/2 c gluten free flour, baking powder & salt then set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the, milk, sugar, eggs, lemon juice, vanilla, and oil.
  4. In a small bowl add the remaining flour and the blueberries.  Gently coat all the blueberries.
  5. Make a hole in the dry ingredients and add in the wet ingredients. Mix till 7/8 incorporated.  Gently fold the blueberries into the mixture, make sure not to over mix!!
  6. Pour mixture into a large zip top bag, then zip close. Snip off one corner large enough for a blueberry to fit though.
  7. Fill each donut mold about 2/3 full.
  8. Bake 10-12 min, or until lightly golden and spongy.
  9. After removing donuts from the oven, let them sit in the pan for several minutes, then place each one on a cooling rack.
  10. While the donuts bake, make the lemon & blueberry icing.
  11. Lemon icing- Mix together the sifted powdered sugar and lemon juice. Add more juice if the icing is too stiff.
  12. Blueberry icing- add 1-2 Tbsp of the lemon icing and 1/4 cup blueberries to a blender, mix well. Take the blueberry mixture and strain the blueberry skins out over a med size bowl.
  13. After donuts have cooled about 15 min, drizzle one or both types of icing on each donut.
  14. Enjoy!!

I had some help with the icing this time 😉
