Sakura Cherry Blossom Almond Donuts with Matcha Glaze

Ingredients

Sakura Cherry Blossom Almond Donuts

  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
  • 1 tbsp sakura powder (see below for more about this)
  • ½ tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp almond extract
  • ½ tsp salt

Matcha Glaze

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease the donut pan with coconut oil.
  2. Prepare the donut batter by adding the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and sakura powder in a bowl. Mix until everything is well combined. Add the maple syrup, coconut oil, milk, and almond extract, and mix until a batter-like consistency forms (it should feel a little sticky).
  3. Add the batter to a ziploc bag and cut a small piece off from the corner of the bag. Pipette the batter into each donut cavity, filling about ¾ of the way.
  4. Place the filled donut pan into the oven and bake for 12 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare the glaze by whisking all of the glaze ingredients into a small bowl until the mixture is smooth.
  6. Allow the donuts to cool for 10 minutes before dipping them into the glaze.
  7. Serve fresh and enjoy!
