Donuts seem like a hard pastry to tackle since the dough can be intimidating, but rest assure, if you follow this recipe you will be making fried white chocolate matcha donuts and patting yourself on the back when you’re done! It’s really not as hard as it seems!

The dough recipe is obviously very important… as is the the glaze!  This one is simple and uses fast acting yeast to help it rise quicker. You leave it in a warm place for an hour or so and when it’s risen, you know it’s done.

Then roll it out about 1″ and use a 3″ biscuit cutters to cut the outside circles and then a smaller one for the center. You can find something in your home that would work too.

We actually ended up using the end of a frosting tip for the middle since we didn’t have the exact circle size needed. Then you drop them in a pan of hot oil and they brown quickly!

The white chocolate matcha glaze is as good as it gets. Super simple to make and tastes exactly like white chocolate matcha! It’s made with white chocolate, powdered sugar, matcha and milk.

Sprinkled a little matcha powder over the top to garnish. A powder like this is perfect to use!

Pure heaven! We also use this dough recipe for our pumpkin-filled donut holes too!

How To Make White Chocolate Matcha Donuts – Step By Step

  • In a stand-alone mixer, add in the warm milk and the yeast. Whisk until combined and then let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • Add in the egg yolk, flour, butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla and mix with the dough attachment.
  • Mix for 4 minutes until everything is combined.
  • Remove dough and place on a floured surface. Knead into one large ball.
  • Spray a medium bowl with oil and place the dough in the bowl.
  • Cover with a dark towel and keep somewhere warm for the dough to rise.
  • Wait 1 hour for the dough to double in size… you can make the filling while you’re waiting for this.
  • When the dough has risen, punch it in the middle (kinda fun in a weird way!) and then roll out 1-2″ thick.
  • Cut circles using biscuit cutters.
  • Fill a medium pot halfway with canola oil and bring it to 350 degrees. Keep a thermometer in there so you can gauge the temperature, keeping it at 350 degrees.
  • Drop two donuts in the hot oil and cook on each side until golden brown… about 35 seconds on each side.
  • Remove and place in on a plate that’s lined with a paper towel to soak the grease.

What Does Matcha Taste Like?

If you’re not familiar with matcha, it’s a high-quality green tea that’s ground into a fine powder. Matcha has a powerfully earthy, bitter flavor, so a little goes a long way. These donuts blend the bitterness of the matcha and the creamy sweetness of white chocolate perfectly, creating quite a unique and delicious flavor.

What Is The Best Way To Store Glazed Donuts?

Donuts stored at room temperature often dry out before the integrity of the glaze is compromised. You can counteract this by covering donuts with plastic wrap or placing them in a plastic bag. Store donuts in a cool, dry place in your pantry.Glazed donuts last one to two days at room temperature.
