  4. Dip the sprigs of thyme into the syrup until fully coated, then remove and carefully shake off any excess
  5. Put into a bowl and sprinkle with the remaining 15g caster sugar to coat
  6. Shake off any excess sugar, then put on a lined tray and leave to set for at least 2-3 hours, or overnight if you have time
  7. To make the doughnuts, preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4
  8. Put the flour and baking powder into a bowl and make a well in the middle
  9. Blitz the strawberries in a food processor until smooth and set aside 25g
  10. Add the maple syrup, oil, almond drink alternative and thyme leaves to the food processor and pulse until combined
  11. Add to the dry ingredients and mix until smooth
  12. Spoon into a piping bag and pipe into the holes of a 6-hole doughnut tin
  13. Bake for 15 mins, until risen and cooked through
