Adzuki red bean donuts with matcha glaze (vegan friendly)

February 27, 2015

Ahhh, it’s that time again. Matcha time. Every now and then I go mad for matcha.

I need it, I want it, and I crave it in any shape or form.

But as much as I love my matcha white chocolate cookies, matcha chia pudding, matcha redbean rolls, and matcha redbean buns, I was just in the mood for something new this time around…which meant it was off to the drawing pastry board I went!

I made these redbean based donuts a good week ago and I still can’t get over that oh so delicious shiny matcha glaze…<3

I mean look at it, it looks like perfection.

I know that making donuts may sound intimidating to some because first you have to make the donut itself, then the glaze, and then put everything together into a neat little package, but let me tell you, these little baked donuts are no different than making a cupcake!

They’re just that easy to make!

4. Make the glaze by mixing the powdered sugar, matcha powder and milk together until smooth. It should be quite thick.

5. Let donuts cool completely before dipping the donuts into the glaze. Dust more matcha powder on top if you like.
