Matchamisu = Matcha (Green Tea) Tiramisu

My baking guru, Queenie, came up with the name Matchamisu and the recipe. It’s utterly brilliant.
She took a classic Italian dessert, the tiramisu, and gave it a green tea spin by replacing espresspo with matcha green tea. Even better, they’re adorable since each one is a mini portion.
Get a little adventurous and try swapping out the espresso like we did here with matcha or any fruit like this rhubarb tiramisu recipe.
Layer upon layer of matcha! It’s super fluffy and rich with alternating layers of matcha cream and matcha sponge cake.
Beware, if you’re sensitive to caffeine, you may want to limit yourself to just one of these decadent tiny treats.

Matchamisu = Matcha (Green Tea) Tiramisu


Ingredients

Matcha Syrup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon matcha

Matcha Sponge Cake
  • 4 eggs
  • 7 tablespoons of sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1.5 tablespoons matcha
  • Confectioner's sugar for dusting

Matcha Cream
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rum
  • 2/3 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon matcha + more for dusting

Instructions

Matcha Syrup
  1. Make the matcha syrup first by bring water (3/4 cup) and sugar (1/2 cup) to a boil. Simmer for 3 minutes and remove from heat.
  2. Let cool, then sift in the matcha (1 tablespoon). Whisk well. (This can be made up to a day before.)

Matcha Sponge Cake
  1. Turn oven on to 350°F. Lay parchment paper on a 13"x18" sheet tray. If the parchment paper rolls up, put a little butter or oil under each corner. Dust the parchment paper with confectioner's sugar. Set aside.
  2. Separate eggs (4). In a mixing bowl, whisk on low speed, the egg whites for 1 minute. Turn up the speed to medium and slowly add the sugar (7 tablespoons).
  3. After adding the sugar, turn speed to high. Mix until the stiff peaks form and the egg whites look shiny. Add the egg yolks (4) and fold to mix. Sift in matcha (1/2 tablespoon) and flour (3/4 cup) to the egg mixture and fold to incorporate.
  4. Pour the mixture onto the sheet tray and spread evenly. Dust confectioner's sugar on top.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes. Use a cookie cutter (we used the 3") to cut out circles.

Matcha Cream
  1. Bring a small pot of water to a simmer. Put the egg yolks (2), sugar (1 tablespoon), and rum (1 tablespoon) in a stainless steel bowl that will sit on top of the pot.
  2. Continuously whisk all three ingredients together until it thickens to the "ribbon stage" (about 5 minutes). Cool for 5 minutes.
