These floral and fruity doughnuts are a real treat for the eyes, as well as being truly delicious… and don’t worry about all that oil, these blueberry baked doughnuts go in the oven.
For our blueberry baked doughnuts, we’ve delicately balanced the sweet fruit with herbaceous lavender and floral chamomile. Lighter than fried doughnuts in every way, these baked doughnuts are easy to prepare and will not disappoint.
Bake a batch of these and take them to your next summer picnic or BBQ, you’ll certainly be the most popular guest at the party. We also recommend serving these doughnuts alongside herbal tea for an afternoon tea treat with a difference.

Preheat oven to 200C/Gas 6. In a small pan melt the butter and then add in the buttermilk, along with 2 teabags, heat until steaming then remove from the heat and leave to infuse for 5 mins. Sieve the flour and sugar together into a bowl. Remove the teabags from the buttermilk mixture and beat in the egg. Pour the mixture into the bowl and mix with a whisk to a smooth batter. Mix through the blueberries through.
Spoon and pipe the mixture into the prepared doughnut mould (50g into each), leave a 5mm gap at the top of each ring. Bake for 20 mins, then allow to cool in the trays for 5 mins then tip out onto a cooling rack.
Meanwhile prepare the glaze. Gently heat the blueberries, lemon juice, icing sugar and edible shimmer with 1tsp water in a saucepan until the blueberries begin to burst. Blitz and strain the mixture then stir in the edible shimmer and allow to cool slightly and thicken.
Dip the cooled doughnuts into the glaze and sprinkle over the rest of the chamomile and lavender tea.

If you just have one tray cook one at a time, wipe any crumbs and re-grease the tray between baking.
