Instructions for Green Tea Doughnuts

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Lightly coat your donut pan with cooking spray.

  2. Combine all of the dry ingredients (flour,sugar, baking soda, salt,and matcha) in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combineingredients evenly.

  3. Mix the wet ingredients together in a different large mixing bowl and whisk till incorporated.

  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients together andmix using a whisk till the batter is smooth.

  5. Pour the batter in the doughnut pan till each mold is about 3/4 filled and smooth the stop of the doughnuts using a spatula.

  6. Bake doughnuts for 7-9 minutes, or until aninserted skewer comes out clean and the doughnuts spring back when you lightly press your finger into them. Let them cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack.

Instructions for White Chocolate Ganache

  1. Place chopped chocolate in a bowl.

  2. Heat the cream in a small sauce pan on the stove until it’s simmering. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and stir to combine, until smooth.

  3. Allow ganache to cool and come to roomtemperature or slightly below. This will make sure that the ganache is thickenough to stay on the doughnuts.

  4. Dip cooled doughnuts into the melted chocolate then top with sprinkles, candied lemon peel or your garnish of choice. 

Instructions for Candied Lemon Peel

  1. Peel the lemons using a vegetable peeler. Cut the peel into your desired shape that you will use to garnish the doughnuts.

  2. Fill a medium saucepan with water and bring to aboil. Add the lemon peels and boil for 5 minutes. To completely remove thebitterness of the lemon peel, strain and repeat this process 2 more times using a fresh pot of water each time.

  3. Place sugar water and lemon juice in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the lemon peels and reduce heat to a slow simmer for about an hour until the lemon peels are translucent. Let the peels stand 12 to 24 hours to air-dry. 

  4. Store in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 1 month.
