Blueberry Cornbread Donuts

1 1/3 cup dairy-free milk
1 Tbsp white vinegar
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cup gluten-free flour
1 1/3 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 1/2 sticks vegan butter, softened slightly
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 Tbsp gluten-free flour

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a donut pan lightly with coconut oil or cooking spray.

In a measuring cup, mix together the dairy-free milk and vinegar; set aside for one minute. Add the applesauce and vanilla; stir to combine.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the softened butter and mix until small clumps begin to form.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture and mix until just combined. (Do not over mix.)

In a small bowl, toss the frozen blueberries with 1 Tbsp flour, then fold the blueberries into the batter.

Pipe or spread batter into the donut pan. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire cooling rack.

Optional: before serving, add a thin glaze made with powdered sugar, vanilla, and dairy-free milk of choice. 

This batter can also be used to make muffins instead of donuts. Line a muffin pan with foil or paper liners, scoop 1/3 cup into each well and bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. 


  1. Cornbread donuts?? That's an interesting combination. Does it taste good?

    1. I haven't tried them yet, but thought they sounded interesting! If you try them, please let me know. I'd like to hear what you think!

  2. Doughnuts might just be the thing I miss the most about eating allergy friendly.
    I think the corn in these would make them sweet and fluffy:)

    1. I miss a good doughnut myself! A maple bar is probably what I miss the most.
