Green Tea Tiramisu Recipe (Irresistible Matcha Italian Cake with NO Heavy Cream) | Cooking with Dog

Hi, I’m Francis, the host of this show "Cooking with Dog" Today we are making Tiramisu with matcha green tea powder instead of using cocoa powder

Let's prepare the ingredients Cut the castella sponge cake into 7mm (03") slices Partially freezing the cake makes it easy to slice Cut the 2 slices into small triangular pieces

These will be used to fill the gaps of the dessert bowl later Next, add a small amount of hot water to the matcha green tea powder and mix it thoroughly This process will help the matcha dissolve completely Then, add the water and rum Stir the matcha liquid well

Now, place the egg yolk in a bowl and add half of the sugar Using a balloon whisk, beat the egg mixture thoroughly until it turns a light color as shown Add one third of the mascarpone cheese Press it with a spatula and thoroughly combine the mixture Add another one third of the mascarpone

The mixture easily separates so you might want to avoid using a hand mixer Add the rest of the mascarpone and mix Finally, lightly mix with a balloon whisk to combine it evenly Next, float the bowl of egg white on ice water and lightly beat it with a hand mixer Then, add the rest of the sugar in 3 steps

Now, the meringue begins to have a glossy texture Thoroughly beat the meringue until it reaches a stiff peak stage Lift the beaters to check if the stiff peaks form Add half of the meringue to the cheese mixture Lift the mixture with a balloon whisk and gently drop it into the bowl

This will help to avoid breaking the foam and also combine the mixture quickly Add the other half of the meringue and combine Unlike our previous tiramisu, this recipe doesn't heat the egg so be sure to use eggs that can be eaten raw or find pasteurized eggs Finally, lightly fold the cheese mixture with a spatula Let's make the matcha tiramisu

Place the fruit granola into a dessert bowl Arrange the castella slices onto the bottom Authentic Italian tiramisu uses Savoiardi biscuits also known as ladyfingers but other types of sponge cake are also used Fill the gaps with the small pieces of castella Using a pastry brush, soak the castella with a generous amount of the matcha liquid

Place the cheese mixture into the bowl and flatten the surface Arrange the castella on top The dessert bowl we used in the video serves 2 people, but you can also make the tiramisu in one large container for 6 people Soak the castella with the matcha liquid again Place the cheese mixture onto it

Castella is a relatively sweet sponge cake so we used a minimal amount of sugar, but you can adjust the amount according to your taste With a scraper, even out the surface Finally, sprinkle on the matcha green tea powder Clean the edges of the bowl and thoroughly chill the tiramisu in the fridge for 2 hours This tiramisu doesn't use any heavy cream, but it has a rich taste and light and fluffy texture

This elegant dessert really makes the green color of the matcha stand out We are very glad that one of the most popular Italian desserts goes great with Japanese matcha green tea powder! Good luck in the kitchen
