Glazed Blueberry Doughnut Muffins

08.03.2013

As the saying goes, the third time is the charm. While working on this recipe I wasn’t perfectly happy with the results until the third batch. I guess it’s a good thing I love baking since I can be so annoyingly picky about it. With that said, I hope you love the third and final result as much as I do. I’ve been craving a good blueberry cake doughnut lately. They’ve always been one of my favorite kinds of doughnuts. Instead of making a fried cake doughnut I decide to go with the same idea but in baked, muffin form. If you like blueberry muffins or blueberry doughnuts, you have to try these! Seriously. You don’t have a choice. Okay, but really, I’m a blueberry muffin snob and I’m completely in love with these. I mean when the word doughnut and muffin comes together to create something how could it be wrong?

These are a delicious cousin to blueberry cake doughnuts. You get a dense yet fluffy muffin, that has just a hint of spice to compliment the blueberries. The muffin itself has just the right amount of an ever so lightly noticeable tang to enhance the natural sweetness of the blueberries, thanks to the buttermilk and lemon juice. Buttermilk and blueberries were simply made to go together aren’t they? Then that glaze that crowns these muffins – lets just say I want to figure out how to make just the muffin tops of these. I love how it becomes shell-like to give you a sugary, outer crust to bite through into that soft muffin (I’m thinking next time I may try to do a cinnamon glaze too – by simply adding a bit of cinnamon into the glaze mixture). These are breakfast dreams come true (can you tell I love blueberry muffins? Yeah slightly obsessed). Just try not to make these on a daily basis, like I want to. I’m excited to try these in other flavors too, like pumpkin this fall and gingerbread during the Christmas season, mmmm. Banana, lemon poppyseed or chocolate would also be delicious. So many different variations to try. Enjoy!

  • Mike Dooley: These are the best muffins……big problem for me is I have to make another batch for work cause I keep eating muffins from the first batch……plus they look great just like your photo….. November 17, 2017 at 7:02pm Reply

  • Janet: Hi! These look delicious! Just wondered – is the oven temp. kept at 425 the whole cooking time? I have seen recipes where you start with a high temp. like 425 and then reduce the oven temp. to 350 after 5 minutes, for the purpose of achieving the high dome top. Thank you!

    • Jaclyn: I actually just recently started trying that myself and have really liked the results so I’d imagine it should work okay here. I might push it to 8 minutes though, just a guess? February 23, 2015 at 6:46pm Reply
