This Blueberry Cardamom Donut recipe is a baked delight that offers a unique blend of flavors. The combination of cardamom and blueberries creates a depth of flavor, and the vanilla glaze adds the right touch of sweetness. Here’s a concise version of the recipe:

Blueberry Cardamom Donuts with Vanilla Glaze

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15-18 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 12 donuts


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ tablespoons milk (or plant-based milk)


  1. Preparation: Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Spray a donut pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Dry Ingredients: In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, and cardamom.
  3. Wet Ingredients: In a separate, larger bowl, whisk the sour cream, melted butter, and egg until smooth.
  4. Combine: Gradually mix in the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, ensuring a smooth consistency. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  5. Pour and Bake: Spoon or pipe the batter into the prepared donut pan, filling each cavity about ¾ full. Tap the pan lightly to ensure the batter is evenly distributed. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the donuts are golden brown on the edges.
  6. Glaze: While the donuts are baking, prepare the glaze. Whisk together the confectioner’s sugar, vanilla extract, and milk until smooth.
  7. Cool and Decorate: Once baked, let the donuts cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Transfer them to a cooling rack. Dip the tops of the cooled donuts into the glaze, then let them sit on the cooling rack to set.


If you don’t devour all the donuts immediately, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
