Homemade Blueberry Fritters are a fluffy, fried doughnut filled with fresh blueberries. The fritters are covered with vanilla glaze to take things to the next level! Perfect for breakfast, brunch or a snack!
Making your own blueberry fritters isn’t hard. They’re fast and easy, perfect for a nice homemade breakfast/brunch treat. Unlike other donuts that require the dough to rise and proof, this is as simple as making pancake batter- only thicker.
Another great perk of homemade blueberry fritters is that they can be enjoyed any time of day. I won’t judge if you want to eat them as a midnight snack! Just be careful to close bedroom doors to sleeping kids or else they’ll wake up and ask for you to share! 🙂

What are the ingredients in these Blueberry Fritters?
With just a few simple ingredients, you can have your own fritters in no time.
For the blueberry fritter batter you will need:
- Melted Butter
- Baking Powder
For the Glaze you will need:
- Powdered Sugar
- Milk or Water
You will also need oil for frying the donuts in. I usually use Canola oil!
You can find ingredient measurements and the steps in the recipe card down below!
How to make Blueberry Fritters
Combine melted butter, sugar and eggs with a hand mixer until they are smooth.
In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and mix it together even more. The batter is going to be really thick.
Thin it out by adding the milk to the mix. Mix until the batter is very smooth.
Fold in the blueberries.
After you have made the fritter batter, it is time to heat your oil in a deep skillet. I suggest doing this after you have made the batter so the oil doesn’t overheat. Oil that is too hot is the fastest way to undercooked fritters. 😉
Heat your oil until it reaches between 340°-350°. I easily watch the temperature with my instant read thermometer. My favorite one is the Thermapen by Thermoworks! Using a ¼ cup measure, you can scoop the batter and pour it into the hot oil. Fry each side until it is golden brown and looking incredible. You can double-check the doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center. When it comes out clean- you’re good to go.
Continue the process until all of the blueberry fritter batters have been used.
Making the glaze is even easier! Just place all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix until smooth. Make sure that your butter is room temperature!
Pour it over the donuts by scooping spoonfuls at a time, or go crazy and just dunk the fritter in the frosting. I won’t judge 😉
How long do Blueberry Fritters last?
While I doubt your blueberry fritter donuts will last very long- they’re addicting! They can last up to two days when properly stored on your counter in an airtight container. They could last even longer inside your fridge or freezer if you place them in a zipper topped bag.
Why are my Blueberry Fritters undercooked?
This happens when your oil is too hot. Make sure that the oil stays at 340°-350°.
