I made Earl Grey tea donuts, gluten free!

20190329_204431I’m basically blogging this recipe for my own benefit, so I can come back and find it – my printer’s broken, so I can’t print it out and add it to my recipe folder! However, these Earl Grey tea donuts are really super delicious, so give them a try if you can!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups plain gluten free flour (as always, I suggest White Wings, but Aldi’s brand is also good)

1/2 cup sugar

20190329_205740.jpg1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder (or 1/2 teaspoon baking soda)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 Earl Grey teabag, cut open, just tip the dried tea straight in

1/3 cup melted butter

1/2 cup buttermilk, OR 1/2 tablespoon white vinegar and enough milk to make up the rest of the half cup

1 egg or egg replacer

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method:

In one bowl, mix all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, tea).

In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients (melted butter, buttermilk/vinegar and milk mix, egg, vanilla extract).

Mix them all together.

Either cook in a donut maker, as pictured, for 7 minutes, or bake at 180 Celsius (350 Fahrenheit) for 10-12 minutes.

Too many interests!

Sometimes I feel like I’ve got too many interests and activities to really carve out a meaningful online presence for myself. I mean obviously I want to bring attention to Eleven Geese Jewellery because that brings in money for me. But I also want to read and write about kids, history, animals, food, science, um just everything really.

It’s been a long time!

I almost forgot I had a blog. Honestly, I’ve been so busy, blogging is a luxury!

I’m still studying, my Ancient History is THIS CLOSE (just imagine me holding my fingers really close together) to being finished. Two more units, less than half a year left (presuming I don’t fail anything) and I’ll be done. I am looking forward to the end with relief, even though I’ve enjoyed almost every part of this. I still don’t know what I’m going to do with it, or whether a mere Bachelor of Arts majoring in Ancient History will lead to a paying job.

I’ve also continued with my jewellery making and selling, and my first Etsy store is doing reasonably well. It’s lots of fun. I also had a market stall last weekend, although it pretty much tanked. It was a slow market, not many people and not many sales all round. I have another one next month which I think should do better; it’s more my demographic. My etsy store is http://ElevenGeeseJewellery.etsy.com.lapis stretch bracelet 3

I have also started painting. My mother was a painter when I was a kid, and my mother-in-law paints, too. My own lack of ability has always been a sore spot for me, I have always wanted to be able to paint, but felt myself unable to. However recently I have discovered fluid acrylics and the pouring method of painting, and I am loving it! Abstract and experimental techniques allow me to be creative without having to be realistic. I now have a second Etsy shop for my art and some homewares. It isn’t very full yet, but having it allows me to justify the experimenting! http://ElevenGeeseHomewares.etsy.comlarge painting 1 cropped.jpg

Finally, I have started doing some audio transcription from home – my only guaranteed paycheck, and it isn’t much! However, it is yet another of the many things keeping me busy.

The kids are now both in school, they’re both doing really well and having a great time. Ellie’s been off sick for the last week with gastro, but she’s fine now. Ellie’s in grade two, Evie is in prep, and they’re thriving. Both of their teachers are very pleased. 20170320_083754.jpg
