This recipe makes 6 blueberry doughnuts. You can use the low carb options or regular. There is also a doughnut glaze recipe you can try on your blueberry doughnuts.
Blueberry Doughnuts Ingredients
1 cup Carbquick or Bisquick or flour. (Carbquick has 90% less carbs than Bisquick or flour.)
1/2 cup blueberries, thawed
1/3 cup Sugar substitute or sugar. (A good sugar substitute is ZSweet.)
1 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbs. oil
1 large egg
1/4 cup Unsweetened vanilla almond milk or regular cow’s milk. (Unsweetened vanilla almond milk has just 1 carb per serving and about the same amount of fiber.)
1/4 tsp salt
Pam cooking spray
Doughnut Glaze Ingredients:
1/4 cup Splenda Brown Sugar or 1/2 cup regular Brown Sugar. (Splenda Brown Sugar has less carbs and only needs half as much in recipes.)
1 tablespoon hot water
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1) You’ll need a doughnut pan that can fit under the NuWave Oven’s lid. I used this Wilton 6 doughnut pan.
2) Spray a doughnut pan with Pam spray.
3) Hand mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
4) Add in, mixing with a blender as you go. In this order: almond milk/milk, oil, egg and blueberries.
5) Ensure the ingredients are all mixed, but don’t over mix till too thick and dry. Try 2 minutes at low speed and then 30 seconds at medium speed.
6) Spoon the batter into the 6 doughnut cups evenly. Make sure the center posts have no batter on them. Spread the batter evenly in the cups and smooth it out, so there are no large lumps.
7) Place the doughnut pan on the bottom serving tray. You may need to balance the ends of the doughnut pan on the upper sides of the bottom serving tray. With the doughnut pan I used, the placement had to be “just right” to fit and put the lid on. And the ends of the doughnut pan did have to be balanced on the upper sides of the bottom serving tray. The lid closed fully though, so use a doughnut pan that allows you to close the lid fully. (You should test the doughnut pan placement prior to cooking, to be sure you know how to place it ahead of time.)
8) Cook at high power for 14 minutes. The tops of the doughnuts should be almost fully brown.
9) Check that the blueberry doughnuts spring back when lightly touched. (You cannot use the toothpick test. Because when you hit a bit of blueberry, the toothpick will never come out clean.)
10) Allow to cool.
11) Blend the Doughnut Glaze ingredients in a small bowl.
12) Dip the tops of the blueberry doughnuts in the glaze, or spoon it onto the doughnuts. Or use the glaze/topping of your choice.
