Grilled Donuts with ice cream and blueberry sauce

We had friends over a few weeks ago so we decided to go crazy and make this recipe for grilled donuts with ice cream and blueberry sauce we saw in Food & Wine earlier this summer as a very special treat.

The hardest part about this recipe is that you need to start with clean grill grates. If you are one of those people that clean the grill grates every time you cook then you are already set! We aren't that kind of people and it took my husband no less than half the day to clean our grates.

This recipe is delicious! It is most definitely rich, it is certainly not healthy but it's a really fun summertime treat!


6 day-old glazed donuts, sliced in half
2 Tbls softened butter
vanilla ice cream, for serving
2 pints blueberries (4 cups)
1/2 cup Chambord or other raspberry liquoure (1 of the tiny containers at bevmo works)
1/3 cup sugar
Kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

For the sauce:
1. Simmer 3 cups of blueberries, chambord, sugar and a pinch of salt over medium heat until blueberries begin to burst, about 15 min. Add the remaining blueberries and the lemon juice and keep warm if serving right away. Otherwise, this can be refrigerated and made ahead and then reheated slowly for serving.
2. Heat a gas grill to moderate heat. Butter donuts cut sides. Place buttered side down on the grates and grill 2-3 minutes or until lightly charred.
3. Serve donuts warm with blueberry sauce and vanilla ice cream
