For me, the holidays wouldn’t be complete without donuts. Some of my favorite childhood memories are waking up and running downstairs to my favorite powdered sugar donuts on July 4th and Christmas from Dreesen’s in East Hampton. But what about a healthy donut? That’s where these maple matcha donuts come in.
I skip the fryer and the refined sugar and incorporate sweet maple, cacao, and matcha into these beautiful sweets. Matcha is one of my favorite ingredients to bake with and it lends a naturally bright color to frosting and more. You can play around and make a chocolate frosting with cacao, if that is more your thing!
