PREP TIME: 20 mins
COOK TIME: 30 mins
TOTAL TIME: 50 mins
Serves: 16
  • Baked apple matcha doughnuts
    • 70g butter, melted
    • 60ml coconut oil
    • 2 eggs
    • ¼ cup buttermilk, room temperature
    • ¼ cup milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 eating apples, peeled and grated
    • 160g all purpose or cake flour
    • 80g finely, ground almonds
    • 120g castor sugar
    • 2 teaspoons Matcha green tea
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • pinch of salt
  • Chocolate and coconut ganache
    • 100g 70% dark chocolate
    • ⅓ cup coconut milk
    • 1 teaspoon coconut oil or glucose syrup
  • Matcha glaze
    • 1 cup icing sugar, sifted
    • 2 tablespoons warm water
    • 1 teaspoon Matcha green tea
  1. Preheat the oven to 180º C. Grease a donut pan or alternatively use a small muffin tin.
  2. Place the butter, coconut oil, eggs, buttermilk, milk, vanilla and apples in a blender. Whizz until the mixture is completely smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, sift together all the remaining dry ingredients. Add the pureed wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  4. Spoon the batter into the donut ring and tap down on the counter to even out the batter. Bake for 15 minutes.
  5. Set aside for several minutes before turning out to cool completely on a wire rack.
  6. To make the ganache, place all the ingredients in a small heatproof bowl and microwave for about 45 seconds. Stir until smooth and glossy.
  7. Dunk the donuts into the warm ganache and place on a drip rack until the ganache is set.
  8. For the Matcha glaze, stir together the icing sugar, water and Matcha tea. The consistency should be like that of double thick cream.
  9. Dip the cooled donuts in the glaze and set aside for at least 10 minutes. Repeat the dipping a second time for even glaze coverage.
