Baked matcha doughnuts with matcha glaze really pack a green tea punch! These are baked, not fried, so they’re not only easier to eat, but they’re also easier on your waistline.
- 1 ½ cups flour
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 ½ tbsp matcha green tea powder
- ¾ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- ¾ cup whole milk
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1 large egg white
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tsp matcha green tea powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- Dash of vanilla extract
- 2–3 tbsp water, or as needed
- Heat oven & prep pan: Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a standard doughnut pan.
- Mix dry ingredients: Combine dry ingredients (flour through salt) in a large bowl.
- Mix in wet ingredients: 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.
- Bake: Transfer ingredients to a piping bag and pipe into molds, filling ¾ of the way up. Baked on the center rack of the oven for 10-14 minutes, or until a tooth pick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes, turn out onto a wire rack and allow to cool completely. Repeat with remaining batter.
- Make glaze: For the glaze, whisk together egg white through vanilla. Whisk in 1 tablespoon of water and continue to add 1 teaspoon of water at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
- Dip & serve: When the doughnuts are completely cool, dip the top half into the glaze and return them to the rack until the glaze sets. This recipe makes more than enough glaze, so I double-dipped my doughnuts for a nice, thick coating. As always, enjoy.
