Baked Matcha Donuts

Our Baked Matcha Donut recipe uses rice flour for a moist finished product. To preserve the Matcha’s color, make sure to lower the oven temperature for the second half of baking!

Makes 5 donuts.


    • ¾ cup rice flour 
    • 1 tsp baking powder 
    • 1 Tbsp Aiya Culinary Grade Matcha
    • Tbsp butter 
    • 4 Tbsp sugar 
    • 1 egg 
    • ¼ cup Milk 
    • 3 Tbsp sweetened azuki beans


    1. Sift the flour, baking powder, and Matcha together and set aside.
    2. Begin pre-heating your oven to 350F.
    3. Allow the butter to come to room temperature and stir it until it is smooth and creamy.
    4. Whisk the sugar into the butter until it is well incorporated and the whole mixture takes on a white color.
    5. Beat the egg and add it in little by little until it is well incorporated.
    6. Add the milk into the sifted dry ingredients, mix gently, and then add the butter and sugar.
    7. Tranfer the batter to a piping bag.
    8. Using a donut mold (or any circular mold you like), place 3-4 azuki beans into each mold and then pipe the batter over them.
    9. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes, lower the temperature to 325F, and bake for about 5 more minutes.

    Note: While this recipe calls for rice flour, you can substitute all purpose or cake flour instead.  Please be aware that changing the flour will slightly alter the finished product.
