Matcha Latte Baked Donuts

Happy Sunday friends!

I wanted to play around with my Organic Burst Matcha Powder this morning and after a long internal debate of muffins or donuts... donuts won. Donuts always win.

What's makes donuts so much fun? It's practically the same recipie as I would have used for the muffins, just a different shape. Whatever it is, donuts, I get you. I see your perfect circles and undeniable adorable-ness (is that a word?).

Now, being the health conscious lady I am, I always bake my donuts. No sense fussing with all the frying oil. That just adds on the calories anyway. Baking them in a donut pan makes them significantly lighter on the tummy and a much more accessible treat since you don't have to call off all meals for the rest of the day to make up for indulging.

The recipie I used for the donut was:

  • 1 ½ cup flour
  • 2/3  cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Orgnaic Burst matcha green tea powder
  • ¾ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup organic vanilla bean yogurt
  • ¾ cup milk or almost milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted

Before you start mixing, go ahead and preheat the oven to 350.

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients first, whisking away all lumps.

In a separate bowl stir together the butter, egg, milk, yogurt and vanilla.

Slowly incoperate the flour/matcha mix into the wet ingredients. (I love love love the color that the matcha makes)

Grease your donut pan (OR a muffin tin for those of you who don't have a donut pan, becasue like I said the recipie is the same😉). Make sure you spray all angles because you want these babies to pop out easily. I filled mine up until juuust about full. Bake for 12 minutes. You should be able to tell if they're ready by lightly touching the top. They should have a firm spongey feel. This is where your pan-greasing skills will shine. (Your "greasing" skills will "shine", do you see what I did there?)

I like to hold my cooling rack over the top and flip the pan over. They fall right out.

After cooling completely, I made a super simple vanilla glaze to finish them off.

For the glaze I used:

  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk, or almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Easy peasy.

I dunk the donuts in, swirl a little to cover and then pulled them up. It cover them just enough to get a nice even distribution without running all over the place.

Dust some additional matcha powder over the top if desired.

Even Cocoa came out to check them out. And she's hard to sell anything to.

She does however look unimpressed. Cats.😒

Until next time,

I love you so Matcha!
