Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 8 fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 stick (8 Tbsp) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 batch Lime Mint Icing (recipe below)

Lime Mint Icing

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp whole milk
  • 5 mint leaves, finely chopped

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and lightly spray or brush a doughnut pan with cooking oil.
  • Put blueberries, mint leaves and 1 Tbsp sugar in a blender. Blend until puréed. Set aside.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and remaining sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and mix to combine.
  • Gently stir the flour mixture into the butter and sugar mixture, alternating with milk. Then stir in the blueberry purée and vanilla extract. Take care not to over-mix.
  • Evenly distribute batter in a lightly oiled doughnut pan, filling tin almost all the way. I recommend putting batter in a Ziplock bag, cutting off a corner, and piping batter into the doughnut pan.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes, until doughnuts are light and springy and just beginning to turn golden at edges.
  • Remove from oven and let rest in doughnut pan for a few minutes, before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • When doughnuts are completely cooled, dip them in lime mint icing to coat tops. Allow the icing to cool and harden.

Lime Mint Dressing

  • Whisk together all ingredients together in a medium bowl.
