Brilliant Meyer Lemon & Blueberry Donuts

  • Author: Lisa Huckabay, The Kitchen at Summeripe
  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 10
  • Total Time: 20
  • Yield: 18 1x

Scale

Ingredients

Batter

  • 2 Meyer Lemons
  • -1 tsp Meyer Lemon zest (about 1 lemon)
  • -1 tsp Meyer Lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups + 1 Tbsp. all-purpose, divided
  • 1 cup low fat vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or previously frozen)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp. Meyer Lemon Juice, about 2 lemons

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Coat donut pan with cooking spray
  3. In a small bowl, mix dry ingredients together and set aside
  4. In a large bowl, mix remaining ingredients together, expect for blueberries
  5. In a separate small bowl, coat blueberries with 1 Tbsp flour. This will keep the berries from sinking to the bottom of your donut pan.

  8. Let cool for 2 to 3 minutes.
  9. Turn donuts out of the pan and onto a cooling rack.
  10. Make glaze by mixing powered sugar and lemon juice in a bowl. The glaze should be thick but not runny. Add more sugar or lemon juice to adjust consistency.
  11. Glaze donuts by dipping top half into glaze.
  12. Enjoy!
