Matcha Chocolate Bars

This is undoubtedly the most popular way people prefer to enjoy matcha! The sweetness of the chocolate is the most perfect way to disguise the bitterness of this tea while you can continue to savor its numerous health benefits. To prepare this, heat half a cup of heavy whipping cream until bubbles start to appear in the pan. Remove the pan from heat. Now, stir in finely chopped 400g of white chocolate and two tablespoons of chopped unsalted butter. Stir the mixture well until smooth and both butter and chocolate is melted thoroughly in the warm cream. Sieve about 1½ tablespoons of matcha into the chocolate mixture and stir it well so that no lumps are formed. Transfer the chocolate mixture into a lined baking dish and refrigerate the chocolate overnight or until it sets well. Cut chocolate into even-sized bars and enjoy!

In a bowl, beat yolks of 2 small eggs with ½ a cup of powdered sugar until the mixture is well blended. Now, whisk in two tablespoons each of any vegetable oil and water. Sieve ½ cup of all-purpose flour, ½ teaspoon of baking powder, and ¾ tablespoon of matcha into the mixture. Whisk it all well and keep it aside. Now, gently fold well-beaten whites of 3 small eggs into the matcha blend. Transfer the cake batter into a greased baking dish and bake it at 170 degrees C until the cake is cooked from inside. Slice and enjoy!
