Homemade Blueberry Iced Donuts
The perfect breakfast? Donuts and coffee. We decided to take this confectionary combo to the next level with our homemade Blueberry Coffee Frosted Donuts recipe. While a cup of joe is nice for donut dunking, why not level up with blueberry coffee icing?
Pairing the dark, rich elixir of life with those circular baked goods actually motivates us to get out of bed in the morning—that’s how good they taste. And while running to the local donut shop is always a sweet time, we’ve really been feeling like saving our scratch lately. The best way to do that? Do-it-yourself. Yes, you can make homemade donuts in the sanctity of your own kitchen.
Homemade Donuts and Blue and Buried Coffee Icing
Making homemade iced donuts is simple, so there’s no need to feel intimidated. We’re going to take that basic icing recipe and kick things up a notch by stirring in our superspecial ingredient—Blue and Buried Coffee. With natural flavors of homemade blueberry jam, luscious vanilla and cinnamon, Blue and Buried spices up any sweet treat. Drizzle this icing over plain donuts—or mix in cocoa or blueberries if you like—and you have a match made in culinary heaven.
