Matcha Green Tea Cheesecake Recipe by Chef Edward Mateo

It’s Fri-yay, which means the weekend is almost here!


To make your time off healthy and fun, I’m sharing a brilliant matcha green tea driven recipe from the Modern Desserts and Pastries Royalty, Chef Edward Mateo. And yaaas, it's as green as it is delish! Just looking at it now is making me drool!


For the crust:

1 cup crushed grahams

2 tbsp sugar

¼ cup melted butter

For the cream cheese batter:

500g cream cheese

225g heavy cream

1 cup refined sugar

2 pcs large egg

2 tbsp matcha green tea powder

2 tbsp all-purpose flour

Mixer & Oven

Procedure:

Preheat the Breville Smart Oven™ at 150C.

In a separate bowl, mix all ingredients for the crust until
well-combined.
Press the crumb mixture over the bottom of a 8-inch springform pan wrapped in foil.


Using the Breville Scraper Mixer Pro™ and the Scraper Beater attachment, cream the cream cheese and matcha green tea powder until smooth. FYI: Breville is a beautiful thing. Not only does it have a wide range of kitchen tools and products, it can also Breville-lize your kitchen, making your cake better tasting and the process of preparing them easier. See my last post here where Chef Edward loudly sings its praises.
Then, add only half of the cream and mix until smooth.
Add the other half and mix again until you have a smooth, creamy mixture.
With the mixer on light mixing speed, beat in the eggs one at a time. Wait until the previous egg is just barely mixed into the matter before adding the next one.
Mix in the sugar and flour for about 1 minute until incorporated.
Pour the mixture over the pan and spread it into an even layer against the sides of the pan.
Bake using bain marie method for about 1 hr and 30 mins.
Once baked, cool for 2-3 hours.
Add decorations as desired.

Hope you enjoy this recipe just as much as I do. That said, at the end of the day, this is cake. Cake, at its best, is buttery and sweet and a total treat. Happy baking!
