Matcha Glazed & Filled Donuts

November 2, 2016

I had so many of you ask me to play around with some matcha and donuts are my first casualty. These have to be one of the most vibrant, unique flavored donuts that have ever come out of my kitchen and they’re just too good to be true…but not…because they are true and delicious and you have to make them. If you whip up some of these for your friends and family (especially the matcha lovers) they will flip out. Go and matcha everything you see in sight, then report back to me. Sound good?
