Pink Iced Sakura Donut

Enjoying a pink iced Sakura donut and Sakura tea this Hanami weekend. 自家製 ピンクのさくらドーナツとさくらお茶. 幸せな花見季節 ?????

why not try and make these donuts for yourself

you will need:

two cups of oat flour

3/4 cup of almond flour ( ground almond meal )

2 teaspoon of Baking powder and 1 baking soda

mix these in one bowl

In another bowl

1/2 cup of apple purée ( I normally make my own ) peel core and chop two apples steam until tender and blend in a food processor) or you can use ready made in a jar .

1 tablespoon of coconut oil / melted coconut butter

1/2 cup soy milk

2 tablespoon of brown rice vinegar

1/2 cup of unrefined caster sugar

1 tablespoon of yuzu juice

For the frosting

icing sugar water and beetroot juice for colouring

sakura flowers for decoration

mix the wet ingredients in to the dry and mix in to a batter .

brush a donut pan with a little melted coconut oil and spoon in your batter I like to use a teaspoon .

bake in a moderate oven to light and fluffy risen and golden

you may find when you take them out you may need to use a tooth pick just to make the holes again .

leave to cool and turn out on to a rack

mix icing sugar  beetroot juice and add a little water at a time to make your icing . Cover your donuts with icing and a Sakura flower and maybe a little dusting of coconut .

I like to film my icing up in the freezer for half an hour . If your not eating them straight away I tend to keep mine in the freezer and defrost them one at a time .

enjoy !
