Lavender Peach Doughnuts Bites Tossed with Lavender Fairy Dust

August 8th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Makes 30 bites

Ingredients

2 cups all purpose white flour
¼ cup almond flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons fresh lavender, chopped fine
2 teaspoons sea salt
½ cup whole milk, room temperature
¼ cup plain white Greek yogurt
¼ cup fresh peach puree
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup butter, melted
Canola oil for frying
Lavender Fairy dust for dusting (recipe follows)

Directions

In a large bowl mix together the flour, almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, lavender, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, yogurt, peach puree, vanilla, sugar, eggs and melted butter. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and gently mix until it is smooth and a little elastic. To fry the doughnuts, fill a pan up to 3″ of canola oil. Heat the oil until it reaches 375ËšF. Drop spoonfuls of the doughnut mixture into the hot pan. Do not over-crowd the pan with doughnuts. Fry about 5 at a time (depending on the size of the pan). They will sink to the bottom but then float to the top. Turn them over and let them cook for an additional 2 minutes or so. Drain them on paper towels and while hot, coat them with the lavender-rosemary sugar. (Wait until the hot oil runs off the donut before dusting.)

Lavender Fairy Dust
Makes 1 cup

Ingredients

1 cup powdered sugar, white
2 tablespoons dried lavender flowers

Directions

Rub dry lavender flowers between your fingers creating a powder, mix with powdered sugar and voila!
