A Taste of Donuts

妈,

这餐是送给您的。

谢谢你多年的支持和爱。

Translation:

Mom,

This meal was created for you.

Thank you for your many years of support and love.

***************

This was breakfast.

It was an intimate meal. My mom and me.

It was also my proposal to Foodbuzz’s monthly 24×24 turned reality.

Hold up. What is 24×24? Well, each month, Foodbuzz selects 24 Foodbuzz Publisher to recreate their proposed meal during a 24- hour period. You may remember my previous Spring Affair. This time, I’ve decided to go donuts…for baked mini donuts.

Vanilla Cinnamon Mini Donuts

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1/4 cup agave

1 T baking powder

1 T chia seeds

1/2 cup water (or nut milk)

1 t vanilla

1 t cinnamon

4 T extra virgin olive oil

1/4 C glutinous flour

Pumpkin Mocha Mini Donuts

1 T chia seeds

1/4 cup cold water

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup agave

2 t expresso powder

3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1 T cocoa powder

1 t baking soda

1/2 t salt
Let’s not forget the glaze and toppings, okay?

We got to pick and choose our flavors. Yogurtland style.

Apple Cinnamon Butter

Green Tea Maple Glaze

Hot Chocolate Glaze

Sweet Potato Salted Caramel Glaze

Oh, glaze isn’t enough. Let’s please pile on those toppings!

And we can’t have all this without a beverage!

My mom’s drink before blending:

Ta-da! After blending.

My morning “drink” a.k.a. latest breakfast obsession.

And finally, to round things out:

Fruits. It’s a must!

Champagne grapes and Asian pear.

妈,

干杯.

Mom,

Cheers.
