Once in a while I feel like making these little donuts. This type of old fashion donuts are super easy to make and the kids love them.
I was inspired to make purple glaze because there is a lilac tree right outside my kitchen window and it's in full bloom right now and it smells wonderful all around tree. The weather in Seattle is still annoyingly gray and moody. I used to love rain and even walking in the rain, when I lived in a rather tropical place. Nowadays it is just annoying. It hits my skin and it's COLD.
Anyway, back to the donuts... We have this bottle of cassis (black currant) syrup to make saft (juice). The color was perfect for making the glaze. I admit that the donuts are slightly caramelized (or burned!) as you can see in the photos, but I also used whole wheat flour this time. So if you are worry about getting them burned like I did, maybe use white flour and not much sugar in it and keep your eyes on!
Enjoy whatever the flowers blooming in your neck of the woods! Happy Spring! and good bye rain already!!
