How to make Glazed Blueberry Cake Donuts:

For the donuts:

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt, in a large bowl.

Add the melted butter to the dry ingredients, quickly stirring to disperse the butter and form small crumbs.

Stir the milk and egg mixture into the flour mixture with a spatula.

Repeat with the dough scraps until all the dough is used. My donut cutter yielded 5 donuts and two donut holes.

 

Fry the donuts 1 – 2 at a time, frying for about 1 ½ – 2 minutes per side.

After the first donut, check it by cutting into the center to make sure the dough is cooked through.

 

Finish frying the remaining donuts. Place them on a wire rack over a baking sheet.

 

For the glaze:

Whisk the powdered sugar, water, and vanilla extract together until a smooth, runny glaze forms.

If it seems too thin, stir in powdered sugar one tablespoon at a time.

 

If it’s too thick, add more water by one very small drop at a time, whisking constantly.

 

Dip each donut or donut hole in glaze.
