Green Tea Flavored Baked Donuts

Adding green tea powder for a change. You can add cocoa powder for a chocolate flavored donuts as well (recipe won't be the same as you will need more cocoa powder to bring out the flavor).

I split it open to share the texture of this donuts. It's still soft the second day.

Ingredients :

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon green tea powder

1 egg
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 tablespoons milk (I used whole milk)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Toppings: sweeten coconut flakes & semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional). You can glaze it with green tea icing or coated it powder sugar before serving.

Method :

1. In a big bowl, combine (A). Whisk to mix well.

2. Push the flour to the side and in the center, add in (B). Mix (B) well with a whisk and mix the flour in to blend well. Set aside.

3. Spray the donut pan with nonstick cooking spray and divide the sweeten coconut flakes and chocolate chips at the bottom of each of the donut tube pans. Divide batter among pans. Place the batter only half full so that you will see donut hole when baked. 3/4 full will not be able to see any donut hole when baked.

4. Bake at 400°F for 10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire rack.

~Yield 12-14 baked donuts

I keep telling myself that I have to try making baked doughnuts because that alone makes them healthier. I love how yours turned out and adding dessicated coconut on top sounds like a delish idea :)
Thanks for sharing them with the Original Recipes Round-Up!
