Ingredients

For donut batter:

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon Matcha green tea powder
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Nonstick spray (oil or butter for donut pan)

For the ganache:

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate chip
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, add the egg, buttermilk, oil and vanilla extract, beat to combine.
  • In a small mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, Matcha green tea powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda, or just mix with a wired whisk.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture to the liquid with the mixer on low speed.
  • Spray, oil or butter the donut pan cavities.
  • Spoon about 1/4 cup of batter into each cavity; try to distribute the batter evenly in the ring shape cavity.
  • Bake for 12 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the middle of donuts comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and flip the pan over on top of a wire rack to remove the donuts from the pan and let them cool on the wire rack.
  • For the ganache, add the chocolate and butter to a heat proof bowl.
  • Bring the heavy cream to a simmer in a small sauce pan over medium heat, remove from heat and pour it over the chocolate. Allow the mixture to stand a few minutes until the chocolate softens.
  • Whisk the hot cream and chocolate mixture gently until smooth and shiny.
  • Dip one side (or both sides) of the donuts into the ganache, twist it around gently to get as much ganache on the donuts as you’d like.
  • Store in an air tight container, they will last for a few days.
