Blueberry Glaze

  1. Sift the icing sugar into a medium sized bowl
  2. Add the blueberry puree and lemon juice, stir until smooth
  3. If too thick add a little more lemon juice to thin it out
  4. Transfer the glaze to a smaller bowl which fits your baked donuts
  5. Dip the smooth side of the donut into the glaze, remove, and place on a wire rack so excess glaze can drip off
  6. Sprinkle with earl grey tea leaves
  7. Allow the glaze to dry for 30-60 minutes, then enjoy!

Notes

*To make the blueberry puree I heated approximately 100g blueberries in the microwave for 1 minute, before pressing it through a sieve
