Matcha Mousse Cake


It seems like a japanese food preview for most KL bloggers this week ( such meiyin and lyrical lemongrass) and my oven got under attack too. I wish cicak man can come to rescue me. hahaha… that’s funny.

Matcha (Green Tea) Mousse Cake is nothing new these days in KL as you can get it at most cake shops in KL. For my version, I used matcha sponge cake, matcha syrup to moist the sponge cake during assembling, matcha mousse, azuki (red bean) and white chocolate for the deco.

This is yet another very simple cake to make and has a very oriental flavour and taste.


Love Sunny Yaw

    So impressive. And green tea is healthy, so this whole thing is good for you … right?

    This is soooo matcha! Would dark chocolate pair well with the matcha flavor? I know the “white” matches the color better, though.

    I love matcha. Quick q, which type of matcha powder do I use? Can I buy from Isetan or must it be the one sold at the bake shops? They seem to be pale green vs the bright green ones I see in Japanese cookbooks.

    D longer I stare at it (since cannot taste), the white choc corals (quoting teckiee) seems to be growing & waving.

    You said, “This is yet another very simple cake to make…”

    Sure does not look simple to me. I think it would take me hours to make just the white chocolate garnish and I am not even sure if it will turn out as good as yours.
