Pillowy soft lemon cake doughnuts with a naturally coloured blueberry lemon icing.
These doughnuts are baked, not fried, and use natural ingredients to colour them. The cake doughnuts are flavoured with lots of lemon zest (feel free to substitute other citrus zests too). The icing uses blueberry powder for flavour and butterfly pea flower powder for colour. Because of the lemon juice in the icing, the acidity changes the butterfly pea flower to a warm magenta colour. The icing is pretty versatile, lots of other liquids could be used to create it (other fruit juices, strong tea, different milks...), and other fruit powders could be used instead of blueberry. To top it all off, I used my favourite brand of sprinkles (@sweetapolita) to jazz things up.
