  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg (lightly beaten)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Ingredients for Hibiscus Glaze

  • 3 Tadin Organic Hibiscus Tea Bags
  • 1/4 cup water
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar (optional: use monkfruit powdered sugar as alternative)

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400° F. Add all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt) to large bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. Make a hole in center of dry ingredients and pour in buttermilk, lightly beaten egg, canola oil, lemon juice and maple syrup. Using a spatula, gently fold everything together until just combined.
  3. Using a pastry bag or a spoon, fill the well of the donut pan until ¾ full (do not overfill).
  4. Bake for 8-10 min or until golden brown, turn on a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Once donuts have cooled, add powdered sugar to shallow bowl and whisk to break into a fine powder. Slowly whisk in cooled Tadin Organic Hibiscus tea, 1 tablespoon at a time. Whisk until the glaze is smooth and slightly thick.
  6. Dip donuts into the glaze and enjoy as is.
