the manitoba museum

The other day I got to visit the Manitoba Museum. One of my favourite things about this museum are the incredible dioramas, many of which were created by Clarence Tillenius. Another highlight was the Hudson’s Bay Company Gallery which features a wide variety of artifacts that profile the iconic company’s history.

baked lemon lavender doughnuts

To make these doughnuts, I adapted this recipe from Sur La Table by adding the following to the batter:

– 1 teaspoon lemon zest
– 1 teaspoon chopped culinary lavender

Hint: fill a zipper bag with the batter and then cut off one of the corners – this makes it much easier to fill the doughnut pans!

Then I made a simple glaze using:

– 3/4 cup icing sugar
– the juice of one lemon, strained (give or take a bit – add this to the sugar gradually so that the glaze is thick and opaque)

Dip the doughnuts in the glaze and sprinkle with lemon zest and culinary lavender… Enjoy!
