You should have all or most of the ingredients on-hand: all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, Cabot Unsalted Butter (softened), Cabot Lowfat Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt, eggs, kosher salt, baking powder, pure vanilla extract, and 1 cup of fresh or partially thawed blueberries. If glazing, you’ll need powdered sugar, whole milk, and additional pure vanilla extract. Once the doughnuts are dry, they’re ready to be enjoyed!

3 ½ cups King Arthur All-Purpose flour
- ⅔ cup granulated sugar
6 tablespoons Cabot Unsalted Butter, softened
1 cup Cabot Lowfat Vanilla Bean Greek-Style Yogurt
- 2 large eggs, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup blueberries (fresh or partially thawed)
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons whole milk
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
To Make the Doughnuts:
To Make the Glaze:
- CREAM together granulated sugar and butter, in a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs, Greek yogurt, vanilla extract and salt. Combine well. Scrape the bowl occasionally with a rubber spatula. Fold in the blueberries.
- ADD the flour and baking powder. This is a sticky dough. Turn out to a floured work surface. Use a rolling pin to roll out to about 1/2-inch thickness. Lightly flour a doughnut cutter and use it to cut out the doughnuts. Place them on a parchment lined half sheet pans. Line a baking sheet with several layers of paper towels and set aside.
- ADD about 3-inches of canola oil, in a large, heavy-duty pot. Heat to a temperature of 375° F. Drop about 4 doughnuts into the oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pot. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until lightly golden brown. Remove the doughnuts from the oil and allow to drain on the paper towels.
- COMBINE the glaze ingredients, in a small/medium bowl. Dip the doughnuts into the glaze on both sides. Let some glaze drip off before placing the doughnuts onto a baking rack, placed over a parchment lined sheet pan. This will help catch the extra glaze. Let dry and enjoy.
