  • 1/2 cup warm water (105 to 110 degrees)
  • 2 (0.25-ounce) packets active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups bread flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh blueberries
  • Vegetable oil


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Combine warm water, yeast and 2 teaspoons sugar in a glass measuring cup. Let sit 5 minutes or until foamy.
  • Pour mixture into the mixing bowl of an electric stand mixture. Add butter, egg, and vanilla extract. With the paddle attachment, beat until mixed.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking powder.
  • Add flour mixture to yeast mixture and beat until combined.
  • Switch to the dough hook and beat at medium speed for about 8 minutes.
  • Shape dough into a ball and place into a bowl that has been lightly greased with oil. Turn dough to coat it in oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.
  • Roll dough out into a 10-inch square on a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle lightly with water and place blueberries on the bottom half of the dough. Fold the top half over and pinch to seal the edges.
  • Roll dough out into a 10-inch square. Use a pizza cutter to cut dough onto 1-inch pieces.
  • Lightly grease a baking sheet. Divide dough into 10 mounds on the baking sheet. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes. Cover either with a clean kitchen towel or plastic wrap that has been coated with cooking spray.
  • Meanwhile, make the glaze. Place butter in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until it smells nutty and turns a light brown color. Keep warm until you fry the fritters.
  • Pour 2 inches of oil in a Dutch oven and eat to 350 degrees. Fry 2 to 3 fritters at a time for 1 to 2 minutes per side. Place on a metal rack set over a baking sheet.
    Repeat with remaining fritters.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together all glaze ingredients. Dip the warm fritters in the glaze or spoon it over them. Serve warm.
