Baked Matcha Donuts

Baked Matcha Donuts

Recipe credit: Hello, Emy

Ingredients:

The donuts:

  • 1¼ cups all purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar (I used granulated sugar)
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp matcha powder (Culinary Grade)
  • ⅔ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup lukewarm coconut milk 
  • 1 large egg at room temperature, whisked
  • ½ tsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
The glaze:
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar (confectioners sugar), sifted
  • ½ tsp matcha powder (Culinary Grade)
  • 3-4 tbsp hot water

Preparation:

The donuts:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Spray a donut pan with cooking spray or some vegetable oil so they won't stick.  
  3. In a bowl mix together the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and matcha powder.
  4. In a separate bowl vegetable oil, milk, egg, vinegar and vanilla. Mix with a spatula the wet and dry ingredients until they are fully combined. Do not over mix the batter.  
  5. Transfer the batter to a piping bag and squeeze into donut pan. Make sure to fill each slot ¾ full.
  6. Bake donuts for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Cool donuts completely after baking on a cooling rack.
The glaze:
  1. Mix the confectioners sugar, water and matcha powder together. The glaze needs to be thick, add as much water or sugar needed to make it perfect. Mix well, it will get difficult to mix but make sure to continue mixing, ensuring all the sugar is dissolved into the glazed.
  2. Dip the donuts into the glaze, then line them up on a cooling rack, letting the excess drip below it and ensuring perfect donuts.
