For The Batter

  • Unsalted butter (melted)-2 tablespoons
  • Whole milk ( at room temperature)-1/3 cup
  • Large egg ( at room temperature)-1
  • Plain yogurt-1/4 cup
  • Vanilla extract-2 teaspoons
  • White sugar-1/4 cup
  • All-purpose flour-1 1/4 cup
  • Baking powder-1 teaspoon
  • Salt-1/2 teaspoon
  • Baking soda-1/2 teaspoon
  • Blueberry jam-1/4 cup
  • Fresh or frozen blueberries- 2 tablespoons

Cinnamon Sugar Coating

  • Granulated white sugar-1/2 cup
  • Ground cinnamon-1/2-1 teaspoon
  • Salted butter (melted)-4 tablespoons


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175° C). Grease a 6-cup doughnut pan with melted butter or spray with a cooking spray. Alternatively, you can use a 12-cup muffin pan.
  • Whisk together the melted butter, yogurt, milk,egg, vanilla and sugar in  a large bowl until combined.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and mix just until combined. Stir in the blueberry jam and fresh/frozen blueberries only 2-3 times to have only streaks of jam.
  • Transfer the batter into a piping bag, pipe it into each doughnut cup (filling 2/3 the way full). Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Place the doughnuts onto a cooling rack. You might need to run a knife around the edges to release them. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  • In a shallow bowl mix the cinnamon and sugar.
  • Brush each doughnut with melted butter and dip into the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Enjoy!


If using a muffin pan, fill 2/3 the way full. Bake for 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out dry, not with wet batter.
