Black Locust Recipe - Black Locust Flower Doughnuts

This is a pretty basic deep fried doughnut recipe that we can use for any flower. I do not add any spices, since the black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) is delicately scented, and we really want to taste it. These were even good the next morning!

Black Locust Flower Doughnuts                 makes about 24

1 1/3 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2/3 c. milk
1 egg
2 c. fresh black locust flowers

1. Heat your oil to 375°.
2. Mix the flour with the baking powder and salt.
3. Beat the egg and add it to the milk. Gently whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
4. Fold in the black locust flowers.
5. Fry about 1 T of batter for each doughnut, about 30 seconds on each side.
6. Dust with powdered sugar for serving.
