GLAZED GOLDEN MATCHA DONUTS

I love infusing tea into my desserts. Be it masala chai or earl grey, teas lend a beautiful flavour to desserts. Yesterday I got to work with SPRIG's golden matcha tea powder- high quality green tea in its purest form. I decided to bake some quick matcha donuts that were heavenly! I can't get enough of the subtle taste and aroma. You have to try out this recipe!
