In celebration of World Donut Day, why not try a treat that is both unexpected and surprisingly healthy. The Tummy Train's recipe for sesame matcha donuts is culturally-themed and features one of Asia's most coveted ingredients, green tea matcha powder.

In addition to being adapted by multiple food bloggers, matcha powder is also a favorite among major brands -- like Pocky and Kit-Kat -- who have adapted it into its most popular products.

This sesame matcha dessert is a great treat to try this World Donut Day and features a flour, baking powder and egg base that is infused with sea salt, matcha powder and granulated sugar. The mix also features sour cream and whole milk ingredients that are garnished with a tasty matcha glaze -- made with confectioner's sugar, matcha powder and black sesame seeds.
