>Baked Donut Balls with Matcha Glaze
June 16, 2010 § 17 Comments
Very quick entry, I don’t have much time but wanted to post these beauties before they fell to the wayside. I made baked donuts last week and there was too much dough so I tossed the leftovers into a ziplock back and into the freezer they went. It was a little experimental as I have never frozen dough before so I was interested to see how they would turn out. After thawing a quick half hour or so, I was delighted to find out that they still rose beautifully and were just as delicious and chewy as before! I wasn’t really sure what to call them as they are obviously very far removed from traditional fried donuts shaped into rings, but what’s in a name, right?
Baked Donut Balls with Matcha Glaze:
Use the recipe in the linked entry to make the donut dough. Preheat oven to 375 and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Roll little balls of dough into about 1.5″ diameter and place each ball into a muffin setting. Cover with a wet paper towel and let rise for 45 minutes. Bake for 8 minutes, and dip into matcha glaze, recipe below.
1 cup powdered sugar
2+ tbsp milk
1/2 tsp matcha powder
Slowly add the milk to the powdered sugar a little bit at a time. When you reach the desired consistency, add in the matcha powder and mix until smooth.
