Today let’s make them purple blue mauve…
The mauve (mallow) is this flower used for herb tea. It’s purple, and the water become blue.

There is no mauve in my donut, but the effect happens with purple vegetables.
I made 3 styles of bakonuts (baked donuts).
Kurogoma (black sesame), simply decorated with sugar stars, flavor is enhanced by a few drops of bitter almond essence. They are presented here. The recipe is the same for the 3. Click here.
Walnuts. Simply added the nuts to the batter. Flavor is vanilla essence.
Raisin. The color is due to the addition of the purple sweet potato powder you can see below. It seems the differences of PH influence the color (like for this soup vichyssoise grise).
As you can see, it’s grey-blue, but pinker around the raisins.
Lost in rendition. They look very shiny in real but not on the photo.
