Green Tea Donuts

Have you seen or tasted Green Tea Donuts before? They are actually quite pretty popular in Japan. The Japanese like to make sweets and desserts with matcha (green tea powder, 抹茶) from green tea latte, green tea tiramisu, to green tea KitKat and Pocky!

Ingredients

  • 3/4

    cup (95 g) cake flour (or make your own - see below)

  • 2

    Tbsp. (25 g) sugar

  • 1/2

    tsp. baking powder

  • 1/4

    tsp. salt

  • 1

    Tbsp. (6 g) green tea powder (matcha)

  • 1

    large egg, beaten

  • 1/3

    cup (80 ml) milk

  • 2

    Tbsp. (35 g) butter, melted

  • 1

    Tbsp. honey

  • For the Chocolate Glaze

  • 1/4

    cup chocolate chips (I use semi sweet chocolate chips, but white chocolate goes well too!)

  • Sprinkles of your choice

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 F (220C). Lightly coat your donut pan with cooking spray. Add all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and matcha) in a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine (you can sift dry ingredients first, but this is a short cut – just whisk for 15 seconds). Add the beaten egg, milk, melted butter and honey to the mixing bowl, and whisk until incorporated. Use a pastry bag fitted with a round tip (or a large Ziploc bag with one corner snipped off) to pipe the batter into the donut mold. Fill each mold about 3/4 full. Bake donuts for 8 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean and the donuts spring back when you lightly press your finger into them. Let cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. To make the chocolate glaze, melt the chocolate in a double boiler (or in the microwave: method shared on this post). Dip the cooled donuts into the melted chocolate and top with sprinkles of your choice. I recommend these donuts to be consumed on the same day. Notes * To make 1 cup cake flour, put 2 Tbsp. cornstarch in an empty 1-cup measure. Then add all-purpose flour till the top. Sift the mixture 2-3 times to evenly distribute the cornstarch.
