Baked Matcha Doughnuts
- 1 cup milk, at room temperature
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 cup coconut sugar
- 1 egg, at room temperature, lightly beaten
- 1 tsp Nature’s Way Matcha Green Tea powder
- 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted at room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 200g quality white chocolate
- 2 tsps coconut oil
- 2 tsps Nature’s Way Matcha Green Tea powder
- Toppings: sprinkles, slithered almonds etc.
- Combine the milk and vinegar, stir and set aside for 10 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius for a fan forced oven. Lightly spray two doughnut pans and set aside.
- Sift the flour, baking powder, matcha powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the coconut sugar, whisk to combine and set aside.
- In a medium bowl or jug, whisk together the egg, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract along with the milk mixture.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir together until just combined. Transfer the mixture to a large piping bag, cut the tip of the bag and pipe the mixture into the doughnut pans making sure you don’t fill any more than about 2/3 of each mold. If you do overfill each section the mixture will rise too much and you won’t have a hole in your doughnuts!
- Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a doughnut comes out clean. Take the doughnuts out of the pan and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
- While waiting for the doughnuts to cool, make the glaze. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in 20 second intervals in a microwave safe bowl until it is lovely and runny, stirring at the end of each 20 second interval. Place 3 tablespoons of the white chocolate mixture in a small piping bag (or small zip-lock bag) and set aside. Add the 2 teaspoons matcha powder to the rest of the chocolate and stir well until it has completely combined.
- Once the doughnuts have cooled, dip one side of a doughnut into the matcha chocolate glaze. Cut a small corner of the small piping bag (or zip-lock bag) and drizzle some plain white chocolate glazing across some of the doughnuts. Top with any other decoration you like – have fun with it!!
