Blueberry Donut Muffins with Vanilla Glaze: little bites of deliciousness!

Blueberry Donuts

Donut Muffins are a genius invention. You get all the satisfying sweetness of biting into a glazed donut without any of the work–or the deep frying!

When I had a few fresh blueberries to use up at the end of summer, I could think of no more delicious way to enjoy them than baked into a muffin. By baking them in my mini muffin tin and adding a layer of my favorite vanilla donut glaze on top, I created Blueberry Donut Muffins!

Pour yourself a cup of hot coffee, bite into one of these mini muffins bursting with blueberries and you’ll feel ready to take on your day.

Or, at least ready to eat another muffin. . . because these taste so delicious it’s hard to stop at just one! When I have a container of these on my counter, I can never resist grabbing one when I walk into the kitchen.

Ingredient Notes

  • Blueberries – Fresh are best! If you use frozen blueberries, they will release more moisture and “bleed” color into the muffin batter.
  • Butter – I always use unsalted butter in baking to control the amount of salt in my food.
  • Milk – Fat free milks works great here but whole or 2% can be substituted.
  • Flour – All purpose flour works best in this recipe. I don’t recommend substituting whole wheat here! We’re making donuts after all.

Step by Step Instructions

STEP 1. Make the batter

Beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla and dry ingredients, then pour in the milk and mix to combine. Gently fold in the blueberres.

STEP 2. Bake

Scoop the batter by the spoonful into a greased mini muffin tin. Bake the blueberry donut muffins for 8 to 10 minutes, then remove and let them cool completely.

STEP 3. Glaze

Whisk powdered sugar with vanilla and milk, adding a little more milk if needed to thin the glaze to your desired consistency. (I like mine thinner than a typical glaze so it’s transparent when it sets!)

Dip the top of each muffin into the glaze. Let the excess run down the sides as the muffins set (about 10 – 15 minutes). Serve or store and enjoy!

Recipe FAQs

How do you store blueberry donut muffins?

Keep these in an airtight container at room temperature. They’ll stay good for about 5 days.

Can you freeze donuts?

Yes. Once cooled and glazed, transfer to freezer bags with layers of wax paper between the donuts. Let thaw at room temperature when ready to serve.
You can also freeze them without the glaze and add it to the thawed muffins about 15 – 20 minutes before serving.

Can this recipe be made in a regular muffin tin?

Yes, but you will need to add more baking time to bake full sized blueberry muffins.

Bite sized Blueberry Donut Muffins with a delicious vanilla glaze! Make these bite-sized breakfast treats and have a sweet start to your day.

Ingredients

For the muffins:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk (I use skim, no fat)
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

For the glaze:

  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4-5 Tablespoons milk

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with sugar until fully combined, about 3 minutes. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add in vanilla, flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Add milk and combine completely. Fold in blueberries.
  2. Scoop a large tablespoon of batter into a mini muffin pan that has been generously greased.
  3. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for about 8-10 minutes. Remove and cool completely.
  4. For the glaze, whisk sugar with vanilla and milk until desired consistency. I like this glaze to be a bit thinner so it is more clear once it dries.
  5. Dip each muffin into the glaze, letting the excess glaze run down the sides of the muffin.
  6. Allow to set, about 15-20 minutes. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days. ENJOY!

  1. Happy Birthday to your sweet girl! Oh, to be 15 again!
    These donut muffins look and sound like a delicious celebration treat!

  2. Happy Birthday to Alyssa! These muffin donuts look like the perfect way to celebrate!

  3. Happy Birthday Alyssa! Hope you had a great day 🙂

    These donut muffins look extraordinary. Can’t wait to try them!

  4. Happy Birthday to her! I love that she has a muffin tradition. And I think you’re a saint for doing swim! 🙂 These muffins are gorgeous too!

  5. Happy Birthday, Alyssa! I don’t blame her for attributing her good swimming with blueberry muffins — they are a powerfully delicious food, after all 😀 and I LOVE this mix between muffin & donut! Blueberry donuts are actually one of my favorite donut flavors, and my favorite by far at Krispy Kreme. Love them!!

    As far as superstitions go, you’re talking to the queen! OCD is not kind when it comes to habits like this so I have a ton, but I do adopt the traditional don’t walk under ladders/if you break a mirror you’ll get bad luck for 7 yrs, etc.

  6. Swim team definitely becomes your life–I remember back when I did it ages ago and my weekends were always booked with meets. These muffins would definitely have made it easier to get up for those early morning meets though! I’m not terribly superstitious about anything, but whenever I take a test I always have to use a purple pencil (only the casing is purple, not the actual graphite) for good luck.

  7. Happy Birthday Alyssa!!!! Blueberry muffins with a sweet glaze sounds like just the perfect breakfast to enjoy for a birthday morning or before a meet! Love the tradition she has of always having to have blueberry muffins! Now tell her to stop growing up because we aren’t old enough to have kids this big 😉

  8. Happy birthday to your daughter, Aimee, and these muffins look like a great way to celebrate — superstitions or not!

  9. These look so good. I just made banana chocolate chip muffins for breakkfast this morning,I wish I would have looked sooner and I could have made these with the blueberries I have. I guess we can have muffins two mornings in a row..right? 🙂

  10. These are too cute and look so yummy! Happy birthday to your daughter! They grow too fast!! My oldest turns ten this year and I don’t even want to think of them becoming teens yet!!

  11. These look so fun with the glaze on them. I don’t currently have any good luck charms, however I could make one to justify having bb muffins more 🙂

  12. Wishing Alyssa a Happy Birthday! Hmm, I might have to get myself some Panera muffins before volleyball tournaments … sounds delicious to me! 🙂 These muffins are so pretty and that glaze looks finger lickin’ good!
