Matcha Azuki Roll Cake
The RIGHT one!
In the crave of green tea dessert. Not something new in my blog, but it's many cake crazes' favourite. Since I finished with my matcha powder which I bought from Japan sometimes back, I have tried out different matcha powder that are available in Singapore. But, I couldn't find one that is with real / authentic taste and gives a good green in my bakes. I have tried the one selling at our local supermarkets ( bakes turn out with yellowish green), Sun Lik bake shop's, which they claim theirs imported from Japan( Good green, but not quite green tea taste). Finally, I found the RIGHT one!! Can forget about the one selling at Phoon Huat, which has a weird smell / taste, it may give a beautiful green, but , no thanks! I was like obsessed with hunting down Matcha powder for the past two weeks, till I found it at Liang Court. Happy, very very happy with it! Love the fluffy and spongy texture!! You may get the recipe here.
The one in the glass bottle, I bought from Sun Lik. Good colour, but not quite right with matcha taste. The one in the packet, is just an ordinary green tea powder drink, with authentic taste, but bakes turnout in yellowish green.
