A deliciously moist baked chocolate doughnuts with matcha glaze are so delicious! This yummy treat is free of gluten, dairy, and refined sugar!
I’m a big fan of doughnuts, just like every other cake, cookie, or pastry out there 😁, so I broke down and bought a doughnut pan last year with a gift card I got for my birthday.
Well the pan, still in its packaging, went into the closet and was almost forgotten about until a few months ago when National Doughnut Day came around and of course I needed
a cute picture to post on social media to celebrate this awesome day! I went scrounging around the closet for my long lost pan and finally put that baby to use!
I made chocolate doughnuts (because chocolate!) and sprinkled them with some powdered sugar. They were so yummy, but as I had only intended to make them dessert (and for my Instagram picture!) I didn’t bother to write the recipe down. 😞
I’ve been meaning make these again for a while now and finally had the opportunity to do so this week! I decided to pair them with a matcha glaze, since I’ve been dying to use this matcha powder I recently got.
My doughnut pan only has 6 molds and the first time I made them I kicked myself for not getting a bigger pan. I’m seriously eying this BPA free silicone one from Amazon though. If you’re looking to buy one check it out!
I was determined to make a glaze that didn’t call for 2 cups of powdered sugar! This one is made with one of my favorite ingredients—raw cashews! It’s the perfect thing to use when you want a creamy consistency and it’s also very versatile. I’ve used them to make frosting, a creamy taco sauce, ice cream, and even a vegan cheesecake!
If you’re not much of a matcha fan, you can eat these plain or make a thinner version of the vanilla frosting from my carrot cake muffins! Don’t forget to tag me and #wifemamafoodie on Instagram if you make these. I love seeing your creations!Print
