What is matcha? This is a classic Japanese green tea, the leaves of which are ground into a fine powder. Matcha has been used in tea ceremonies for a long time, and today it has become especially popular due to its taste and structure, which allows this tea to be used in the preparation of desserts and drinks. Not only does matcha add a subtle flavor to dishes, but it also gives sweets a wonderful shade of green.

Delicate biscuit cake with matcha and protein glaze


Biscuit Ingredients:

200 g flour; 4 eggs; 200 g of sugar; 1 tsp matcha powder; half a teaspoon of baking powder; butter for greasing the mold.

Glaze Ingredients:

150 g of powdered sugar; 4 proteins; 2 drops of vanilla.

Let's start by making the biscuits. Separate the whites from the yolks. Beat the whites with a mixer, gradually mixing in the sugar, as soon as the mass becomes white and airy, pour in the yolks, and beat well again.

In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder and mix with matcha tea. Combine wet and dry ingredients, beat well with a mixer.

Lubricate a deep baking dish with butter, or lay parchment paper on the bottom, pour the dough. We send the biscuit to the oven preheated to 180 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Readiness is checked with a wooden toothpick. Take the cake out of the oven and let it cool down a bit.

Ready for frosting. Using a mixer, beat the proteins until a dense mass, slowly adding powdered sugar. When the proteins become airy, add 2 drops of vanilla, and mix everything well. We cut the biscuit into 2 parts, spread the icing, decorate the cake with whipped cream.
