Makes about 20 doughnut bites

 Ingredients

2 ½ cups flour
¼ cup almond flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
1 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons Buffalo Trace Bourbon
2 eggs
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon orange zest

 Directions

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix until a soft dough is formed. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, 1-2 minutes.  Roll dough out into a flat, ½ thick piece and cut into little sections.  Form sections into balls using the palms of your hands and refrigerate for about 1 hour.  Heat at least 2 inches of oil in a large sauté pan to a medium-high heat.  Once hot, drop the doughnuts in a few at a time and allow them to cook for about 5 minutes while carefully moving them around and flipping until the doughnuts are golden brown.  Remove and drain on paper towels.   Serve with Maple & Meyer Lemon Bourbon Sauce and add a few drops of Hemispherical Meyer Lemon Bitters on top.

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.)
