Kat loves matcha so much she’s finding endless ways of incorporating it into her day. Her latest obsession is baking with it. It’s fun to watch Kat mixing and rolling in the kitchen, filling the house with delicious aromas. I admit I started getting a little jealous when she was spending so much time in the kitchen without paying me much attention, but of course matcha desserts go perfectly with a warm cup of tea. I love how we can find new ways to spend time together!
Here are a few baking recipes Kat and her friends have been making lately.
If you enjoy rich chocolate brownies, wouldn’t brownies matcha be even better? Kat adores these brownies with a matcha glaze. The green tea flavor pairs perfectly with gooey, sweet chocolate.
If you love shortbread cookies as much as Kat does, you must try these green tea shortbread cookies! They are simple to make, and perfect for afternoon tea. They are a treat fit for company or just for a quiet moment all for you.
I remember when these matcha lemon meltaway cookies were a hit at her last tea party. They are the perfect texture, with a memorable tangy citrus and sweet green tea flavor. No crumbs were left behind on my saucer!
Finally, if you’re feeling tired but really wish you had a luscious piece of matcha cake all to yourself, you really can’t go wrong with this matcha green tea mug cake! You simply combine the ingredients and microwave for 1 minute. Just please be sure to use a microwave safe mug. A little bit of effort for a delightful result. Kat was surprised at how moist a microwaved cake could be!
Wouldn’t these scrumptious treats would be perfect for your dinner party, or a decadent snack at teatime? If you’ve baked with matcha lately, I’d love to hear about what you’ve made!
