Matcha / Green-tea Tiramisu

 

mt3

This tiramisu was made with my last save of matcha powder, as I poured it out to the mascarpone mix, my heart started to ache… why?  Why did I just bought two sachets of this powder? Why not ten? …. but anyhow  nothing lasts forever… I might have to wait a long time  to taste  matcha sweets again. I could not even find Japanese green tea here, let alone  the powder….hiks…hiks.

Ingredients

  • 250gr mascarpone cheese
  • 2 eggs (separated)
  • 1 package savoiardi
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 espresso cups of  italian coffee (cooled)
  • 3 tablespoons matcha powder
  • 1 tea bag of japanese green tea
  • cocoa powder (unsweetened)

 

Directions

Poor espresso into shallow flat bowl and let it cool down.

Separate egg yolks and whites.
In a mixing bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar until creamy quite white, then whip in the mascarpone and mix gently.

In a second mixing bowl, beat eggs whites and whip until stiff and fluffy, stir in the matcha powder and the tea leaves from the tea bag.

Gently fold beaten and mix mascarpone cream with egg whites just  to blend.

Dip each savoiardo in the bowl with espresso. To get the right amount of espresso on the savoiardi, pull it out before they become too soft.

Arrange a layer of dipped savoiardi across the bottom of the pan. Then spoon a layer of egg/mascarpone cream across the layer of savoiardi. Use about 1/2 of the mascarpone mix.

Dip another layer of savoiardi and lay them on the mascarpone mix. Put the remaining mascarpone mix on it.

Dust  top with the cocoa powder

Refrigerate for at least 5 hours before serving.

Orange Blossom Strawberry Tiramisu

 

It’s my second time sending an entry to SHF, host this month by Susan from the foodblogga, with berrilicious theme.   I wish I have the privilege of using fresh blueberries, raspberries or any other berries in my dessert, instead of strawberries. Unfortunately strawberries is my only choice, as raspberry’s season has passed by, and blueberries are way to expensive  (7$ for 50gr ???), the rest of the “berry” clan is not even in the market here 😦

Anyhow, tiramisu (recipe) is an all time favorite, with a little twist of orange blossom marinated strawberries, it gave a fresh taste of summer and when it’s combined with the robust coffee and mascarpone flavors, it’ll simply going to “pull your head” two times 😉
