These Matcha Tea Baked Donuts are insane, so much healthier than regular donuts, with vibrant deep green color and incredible flavor with a fabulous contrast between the sweet and sour of matcha. They are a fun snack and very easy to make. The decoration of these donuts can be in different ways: a very tasty matcha glaze, a matcha cane sugar, or matcha powdered sugar coating, in any case, it will highlight that striking green color and it will look spectacular not to mention that its flavor will be perfect. Aesthetically they look very good and inside a paradise. They are somewhat toasty on the outside and absolutely fluffy and soft on the inside. A cloud of flavor... incredible!
- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- ⅓ cup of cane sugar
- 1 large egg
- ¾ teaspoon baking powder
- ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon matcha powder
- ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
- Heaping ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- 1⅓ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup almond milk
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon matcha powder, depending on desired green color
- 1 tablespoon almond milk
- Preheat the oven to 425°F and lightly grease one standard 6-hole doughnut pan.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut oil and sugar. Add the egg and whisk to combine. Add the baking powder, baking soda, matcha powder, nutmeg, salt, and vanilla and whisk to combine.
- Alternately add the flour and the milk, beginning with the flour, until thoroughly combined. The batter will be thick, and a spatula drawn through the batter should leave an indentation.
- Spoon the batter into the doughnut pan.
- Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Remove from the pan and place on a wire rack to continue cooling.
- Matcha Glaze: In a small doughnut-sized bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and matcha powder, then whisk in the almond milk until smooth. Dip each doughnut in the glaze and let the excess glaze drip off.
