A fan love of MATCHA (green tea)

I always try to find and dessert that made from matcha. Coz I'm the dying fan to matcha ;p  There are the different recipe I tried like pudding, matcha latte, matcha cupcakes, and cookies. But still can't satisfy the taste I made. Still can't bring out the fragrant and taste of the matcha. However, still searching though the right and perfect recipe, though.

Matcha panna cotta (recipe from cooking with dog)


200ml milk
100ml heavy cream (i use whipped cream)
30g sugar

1 tbsp of matcha powder
1 tbsp of hot water

5g gelatin powder (i use 6-7g)
2tbsp of water

Black sugar syrup:
50g refined brown sugar
50g brown cane sugar
50ml of water 

  1. Soak the gelatin powder into the water, stir until combined and set aside.
  2. Another small bowl, mix hot water into the matcha powder and mixed until well combined.
  3. Put sugar into the saucepan, then pour in milk and heavy cream. Heat it up until sugar dissolve.
  4. Once the milk is warmed, turn off the heat, take 2 - 3 tbsp of the milk mixture and incorporate into the match mixture so that it dissolve evenly when poured back into the saucepan.
  5. Then pour in the gelatin mixture and stir it until dissolved.
  6. Strain the mixture so that there is no clump in it.
  7. Prepare a bowl with water and ice, place the mixture on the ice bowl and constantly stir until it thickened up.
  8. Then pour the mixture into the desired container and put into the fridge for 1-2 hours to set. 
  9. (Black sugar syrup) pour all the ingredients into the saucepan and cook until sugar dissolve and slightly thickening. 
Matcha cupcakes


*215g all purpose flour (i left not much of it so I mix with low flour)
1.5 tsp baking powder
110g sugar
1 1/2 tbsp of matcha powder
63g butter
*188 ml milk + a splash of milk for the batter(the end of mixing all ingredients) 
63g vegetable oil
*1 tbsp greek yogurt
1/2tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg

*At the same time I dun have milk in hand and left not much of yogurt so i:
129g yogurt + (71ml water + 1/2 tbsp condensed milk + 1/2 tbsp milk powdered)-> i make it to total 200ml 
At this recipe, you can see I tried to change the recipe by randomly mixing things here. :P You know, experiment right? 

  1. Preheat oven to 160c, lined up with cupcake papers into a cupcake tray.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients into a large bowl + butter and mix with electric mixer for 1 minute or 2.
  3. Then mix all the wet ingredients in another bowl.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and incorporate well.
  5. Scoop evenly into the cupcake papers for about 2/3 full.
  6. Bake for 20-25 mins.
As you see, it turned out not so ideal, the cupcakes are too moist and taste very floury. I think i didn't mix it well. I also made some white chocolate ganache, i didn't measure it how much i use but it turned out badly. Plus, i lazy to take the picture so, i decided to just put this cake itself only. So that's it, there still more for me to experiment!
