After some inspiration from this macha green tea cake recipe, I decided to experiment with using macha powder in my own version. As I wanted to use up a lot of the left over ingredients from previous baking days, I used macadamia nuts instead of sweet chestnuts and almond meal instead of flour. It didn’t turn out as green as I had hoped though…perhaps due to the brown sugar? Nevertheless an ‘interesting’ afternoon tea – I may have to keep to the exact ingredients next time.
If anyone has any great recipes using macha powder, send them my way 🙂 I love green tea!
