Need to satisfy your sweet tooth ASAP? You can make these Mochi Matcha Doughnuts in less than 30 minutes!
To give these doughnuts the most amazing chewy mochi texture, we use Mochiko. This Japanese flour is a sweet rice flour which is made from short grain glutinous rice - typically used to make mochi!
- ¼ Cup Rice Flour (Mochiko)
- 3 TBSP Milk (of your choice)
- 1.5 Cups Rice Flour (Mochiko)
- ⅓ cups Sugar
- 1 TBSP Matcha Powder
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- ½ cup milk (of your choice)
- 3 TBSP butter, melted and cooled
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1.5 cup Confectioners sugar
- 1TBSP matcha powder
- ½ tsp vanilla
- 2-3 TBSP milk (of your choice)
- Mix the starter - Take the rice flour and milk in a small bowl and mix until smooth, then microwave for 20 seconds. It will be very sticky and translucent.
- For the doughnuts, combine rice flour, sugar, matcha, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix the milk, butter, vanilla and egg together. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry until the dough comes together. This is easiest in a stand mixer. The dough will be sticky to the touch still.
- Dust your work surface with rice flour and put the dough on the counter, knead it until soft it will be like Play-Dough. Once it’s good cut the dough into 12 pieces for your doughnuts. Then take each piece and separate into 6. Roll those small pieces into balls and group together on a piece of parchment.
- Heat Oil in a large pan - once you have all of your doughnuts rolled drop several in the oil with parchment paper still attached (this will help keep them together). Fry until done.
- Mix all of the glaze ingredients together, gradually adding in the milk just until it reaches a thick consistency. Once the doughnuts are cooled dip in the glaze and decorate!
- If you don’t want to roll the balls out and create the rings you can simply just cut out traditional doughnut shapes with a ring cutter.
- If you’d like to bake the doughnuts use a doughnut pan, pipe the batter into the rings and bake at 350 for 7-9 minutes.
