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
Preheat the Breville Smart Oven™ at 150C.
In a separate bowl, mix all ingredients for the crust until
Press the crumb mixture over the bottom of a 8-inch springform pan wrapped in foil.
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!
