How to make Blueberry Cream Cheese Doughnuts

Servings : 7 doughnuts



  • 2¼ cups / 286g bread flour
  • 2½ tablespoons / 31g granulated sugar (plus extra to roll fried doughnuts in)
  • ½ tablespoon fine sea salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2½ tablespoons / 35g unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup / 120ml milk (non-dairy milk works too)
  • ½ tablespoon active dry yeast
  • frying oil


  • 1 cup / 150g frozen blueberries
  • ⅓ cup / 80ml maple syrup
  • 8oz / 227g cream cheese



1. Place the bread flour, sugar, salt, nutmeg, butter, egg, milk, and yeast into the bread machine and set it on the dough setting. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Take the dough out onto a floured surface and roll it out to about ½ in/1.3cm in thickness.

3. Cut out 3in/8cm circles and place them on pieces of parchment paper. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise until it doubles in size, about 30 minutes.

4. Heat your oil to 356°F/180°C and fry each doughnut for about a minute on each side. Take them out onto a wire rack to drain any extra oil. Coat the doughnuts with granulated sugar after a couple minutes of cooling.


1. In a small saucepan, heat the blueberries and maple syrup on medium heat. When the blueberries release their juices, turn the heat down to low and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes. You’re looking to reduce the water content so your filling isn’t watery.

2. Take the pan off the heat and set aside to cool. Once cooled, add it to a blender to purée until smooth. Beat the cream cheese in a bowl, add the blueberry mixture, and stir until combined.


1. Using a knife or chopstick, poke a hole into each doughnut.

2. Put the blueberry cream cheese filling into a piping bag with a piping tip. Insert the piping tip into the holes and fill the doughnut with as much filling as you like.
