Matcha Doughnuts | Dairy-Free

Sweets don’t usually come in this vibrant a green without dyes, which makes these round doughnuts a cute treat for Christmas.


  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons almond milk*
  • 1 Tablespoon melted lard
  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cups cake flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Matcha Powder
  • Frying oil: enough to fill the pan to a 1/2 inch depth
  • Coating
  • 1/4 Tablespoon matcha powder
  • 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar.


  1. Start heating the vegetable oil to 350 F (175 C). It is best to use a thermometer so that you do not overheat the oil.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, brown sugar, melted butter, and milk.
  3. In a separate bowl sift together the baking powder, cake flour, and 1 tablespoon matcha powder.
  4. Create a hole in the middle of the flour mixture, pour in the egg mixture. Starting from the center, mix the flour into the egg mixture a little at a time to avoid pockets of flour. Work quickly, and be careful not to over mix.
  5. Once the oil is ready, drop 1 tablespoon of batter into the oil. It is easiest to use a small ice cream scoop that has been dipped in the oil before scooping. Do not cook too many doughnuts at a time, otherwise the oil temperature may drop too much.
  6. Let the doughnuts cook in the oil for 4-5 minutes.
  7. Scoop out each doughnut and drain the excess oil roll on a piece of paper towel to absorb some of the oil from the doughnut.
  8. Let the doughnuts rest until cool.
  9. In a large plastic bag, shake together the 1/4 teaspoon matcha powder, and powdered sugar. Add the doughnuts, and shake until they are coated in the sugar mixture.
  10. *If you are making this dairy-free, I recommend using earth balance butter and unsweetened almond milk. The nutritional content will change from below.
