matcha cupcakes with chocolate ganache frosting, vegan and recipe for two

Okay, let’s get serious. I need to know this about you: Are you a matcha lover? If the answer is yes, we have to be best friends. Because I’m in L-O-V-E with matcha (ssttt.. don’t tell my bf). Matcha, aka green tea, tastes so good! In baking, it makes the perfect combination of sweet and bitter. You either hate it or love it. Obviously, I’m the latter. So today, we’re going to make VEGAN matcha cupcakes with a delicious dark chocolate ganache. Yes, the ganache is also vegan! In addition, I made this recipe for two so you don’t have to worry about binging on leftovers. Gosh, I feel so healthy now.. How about you? 😉  Read more

Matcha Danish Rolls

Flaky Danish pastry with a matcha filling. These rolls are very buttery and aren’t too sweet.

I didn’t make the filling very sweet, but if you want a very sweet roll you can add more sugar to the filling. Whatever you like. Now, are you ready to see how you can get these delicious rolls in your home?

We’ve gone too long without a matcha recipe guys! My last one was about 2 months ago. That’s crazy. So I’m back with your matcha fix. As usual, this matcha recipe serves a small crowd. Well, not even a crowd to be honest. Just one person. I’m combining my love for matcha and my love for single servings with this recipe: Single Serving Matcha Lava Cake. That’s right, LAVA! I love the classic chocolate lava cake, but matcha makes everything better if you ask me. And just like the small matcha cake, my matcha-disliking-boyfriend devoured this cake. He even asked for another cake. Compliments don’t get better. Read more

Even my boyfriend, who isn’t much of a matcha fan, loved this cake. It has just the right amount of bitter green tea and sweet sugar. In addition, the cake looks gorgeous and serves a small crowd (2-3 people). There is no better cake for real matcha lovers. You only need a simple sponge and green tea whipped cream. The latter might sound fancy, but it takes just three ingredients.
