I am absolutely OBSESSED with these lemon poppy seed and blueberry cake donuts!

They will melt in your mouth as they are super soft and sweet! The blueberry glaze is not overpowering, yet balances the lemon poppy seed donut with its blueberry compote!

Since the donuts are super soft, I recommend spooning the blueberry glaze on top of each donut, versus dipping the donuts in the glaze. It will help give you nice drips down the side, as well as prevent any cake donut from breaking in the process. It will leave you with a mouthwatering, aesthetically-pleasing cake donut!

I can completely imagine a baby shower with these donuts alongside small mason jars of milk, plant-based or regular. The fun part is you can make them more blue or more pink depending on how much powdered sugar you mix in the glaze, so you can have a mix of naturally-colored baby blue and pink donuts for a gender reveal party/baby shower!

Ingredients

For (V) Lemon Poppy Seed Donut:

  • 1 1/4 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 3 tsp. Poppy Seeds
  • 1/3 cup Granulated Cane Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Full-Fat Coconut Milk, canned
  • 2 tbsp. Lemon Zest, about 2 lemons
  • 2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla

For (V) Blueberry Glaze:

  • 1 tsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Blueberries
  • 3/4 cup Powdered Sugar

Instructions

For (V) Lemon Poppy Seed Donut:

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • In a mixing bowl, add together the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, lemon zest, poppy seeds, and granulated cane sugar. Mix until all ingredients well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the white cream of the canned coconut milk, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, and vanilla extract.
  • Using a hand-mixer or stand-mixer, add the coconut milk mixture into the flour mixture. Beat on medium speed until combined, about 1 minute. (Fold in 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil if you feel the batter is too thick)
  • Place the batter into a icing bag for an easier distribution. Evenly distribute the batter among 6 donut cavities that have been lightly greased with olive oil.
  • Bake the donuts for 10-12 minutes. Allow the donuts to cool in the pan for 10 minutes.

For (V) Blueberry Glaze:

  • In a small pot over medium heat, add together the fresh blueberries and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Using a fine-mesh strainer, pour the blueberry compote through it and press down with a spoon to release the liquids.
  • In a small bowl, place in the powdered sugar. A teaspoon at a time, add in the blueberry juice until it forms your desired thickness/color.
  • Once the donuts are cooled, either dip the donuts in the glaze or spoon the glaze on the donuts.

I truly hope you all enjoy! xxL
