Matchamisu (Matcha Tiramisu)

Prep time: 30-45 minutes
Total cook time: 4 hrs (refrigeration time)
Serving: 8 slices

- 475g Mascarpone Cheese
- 1/2 Cup of sugar + 1 tbsp (for the matcha tea mixture)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp matcha powder
- 2 cups of boiling water
- 1 1/2 Cup of whipping cream (35%)
- 1 pack of lady fingers (about 20-25 biscuits)
- 2 to 3 tbsp of matcha powder for dusting


1. Add mascarpone cheese to a mixing bowl.
2. Add 1/2 Cup of sugar and vanilla extract to the mascarpone cheese in the mixing bowl.
3. Combine all the ingredients thoroughly in the mixing bowl.
4. In a separate bowl make the matcha tea.
        A) Add matcha power to a small bowl.
        B) Add 1 tbsp of sugar to the matcha powder.
        C) Add all of the bowling water to the matcha.
        D) Stir until well combined.
5. Whip the cream to stiff peaks.
6. Fold 1/3 of the whipped cream to the mascarpone cheese.
7. When it's well combined, fold the rest of the whipped cream into the mascarpone cheese.
8. Soak the lady finger biscuits in the matcha tea mixture and lay them on the bottom of the cake pan. (Make sure the entire base is covered, because this will serve as the base of the cake).
9. Take about 16-18 lady fingers and cut 1/3 off. Line the remaining 2/3 of the 16-18 biscuits vertically around the cake pan. (Without dipping in the matcha tea).
10. Place 1/2 of the mascarpone cheese mixture over the base with lady finger biscuits.
11. Spread the mascarpone cheese evenly.
12. Dust some green tea powder on top of the mascarpone cheese. (Until it's all covered by the matcha powder).
13. Repeat steps 8-12 for the second layer of mascarpone cheese.
14. Refrigerate for at least 4 hrs to let the cake set.

And now it's ready to serve!!! Please enjoy! ^^

Please note: I used a 9" cake pan for my matcha tiramisu.
