Raspberry Sakura Tea Cakes with Matcha Powdered Sugar

Ingredients

Raspberry Sakura Tea Cakes

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tbsp sakura powder
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder


Matcha Powdered Sugar

  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp matcha powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease 5 cups of a 6-cup muffin pan with 1 tbsp of melted butter.
  2. Prepare the tea cake batter by mixing the egg whites using a stand mixer until the mixture becomes fluffy and forms soft peaks on the whisk.
  3. Add the almond flour, all-purpose flour, brown sugar, sakura powder, and baking powder to the whipped egg whites. Mix until everything is well combined.
  4. Add about 2 tbsp of batter to each cup in the muffin pan. Gently press a raspberry in the center of each and place in the oven for 12 minutes, until tea cakes are slightly golden.
  5. Prepare the matcha powdered sugar by whisking the matcha and powdered sugar in a bowl until everything is well combined.
  6. Sift the matcha powdered sugar over the warm tea cakes, and enjoy!

100% Natural Sakura Powder 

I used the same sakura powder used in the matcha donuts recipe we released earlier.

This 100% Natural Sakura Powder has been a delightful find. I was intrigued by the idea of incorporating the delicate essence of cherry blossoms into my baking. To my surprise, this powder added a subtle floral touch that transformed my recipes. It's not just about the flavor; the natural color it brings is visually stunning too. I've enjoyed experimenting with it in both sweet and savory dishes. If you're curious about adding a bit of sakura charm to your cooking, this might be something worth exploring!
