I seem to be on a “green” kick lately. I guess it’s all the St. Patrick’s Day posts:).
I love donuts!! Fried, baked, big, small, really small (remember my mini donut post?). Well, you get it, right? These matcha donuts are baked and topped with a matcha glaze. If you are a matcha fan, trust me, you are going to love these!! My hubby isn’t really a fan of matcha, but he really liked these!!
*This recipes makes 12 large donuts
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (209 grams)
- 2/3 granulated cup sugar (130 grams)
- 1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder (6 grams)
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon fine kosher salt
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 1/3 cup sour cream, room temperature (64 grams)
- 3/4 cup whole milk, room temperature (180 grams)
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly (28 grams)
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a standard donut pan. *These can be made in a mini pan also
- Combine dry ingredients (flour through salt) in a large bowl.
- In a small bowl, whisk together egg, sour cream, milk and vanilla. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk until just combined. Stir in melted butter.
- Transfer ingredients to a piping bag and pipe into molds, filling 3/4 full. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow donuts to cool in the pan for 2 minutes, turn onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely. Repeat with remaining batter.
- 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 2 teaspoons matcha green tea powder
- 1/4 teaspoon fine kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon softened unsalted butter
- 2–3 tablespoons milk or cream, as needed
For the glaze, whisk confectioners’ sugar, matcha, and salt together in a bowl. Add the extract, butter, and 1 tablespoon of the milk (or cream) to the dry ingredients. Stir to combine and add more milk until glaze reaches the desired consistency for dipping.
Dip donuts and place on a rack until the icing sets (about 10 minutes). Enjoy!
Extra donuts (if there are any) can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
