Enjoy the Rich Taste  - Matcha White Brownie Recipe - - Yunomi.life

Have you had any matcha sweets? Have you made them by yourself? What I love about matcha sweets is I can enjoy a nice flavor of matcha and also enjoy sweet and bitter at the same time. I think bitter taste brings out the sweet flavor. 

I felt like having matcha cake with a rich taste. Also I wanted to make a simple recipe. I tried making it a few times and I got an idea to bake with white chocolate!! I think matcha goes very well with white chocolate!


I used this matcha for the cake. 



Kanes Tea Factory #08: Unsweetened Matcha - Yuzu 抹茶 柚子美人 30g


柚子 (Yuzu) is a type of Japanese citrus fruit. There is just a little natural yuzu peel powder in the matcha. You will feel a flavor of Yuzu when you bake.  Please try it if you would like to add a refreshing citrus aroma with the brownie!! 

It is no problem to use any matcha at home. I am happy if you would bake it and enjoy the rich taste.
