#17- Matcha Madeleines

10953084_1405725463061784_1200717755_n

I had some leftover matcha and wanted to make more madeleines, since they’re so pretty. So this week I made Matcha Madelines. These are easy to make and delicious, especially if you like the green tea flavor! You can also substitute the matcha with earl grey tea. Happy weekend!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup & 1 ts of confectioner’s sugar (65g)
  • 2 tsp matcha powder (get the good stuff)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp of milk (10ml)
  • 1/2 cup & 1 ts of all-purpose flour (65g)
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder (2g)
  • 5 tbs of unsalted butter, melted then cooled until lukewarm (65g)
  • Confectioners’ sugar for garnish

Methods:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat an egg, milk, confectioner’s sugar, green tea and a pinch of salt just to blend. And set aside.
  3. In another bowl, sift the flour and baking powder.
  4. Pour the dry to the wet mixture, and fold until just moistened.
  5. Beat in melted butter slowly until thick ribbon is formed.
  6. Fill 2/3 of madeleine molds with batter (it may not look like a lot of batter)
  7. Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown.
  8. Let cool the madeleines in the pan for one minute. Then transfer madeleines to the wire rack. Madeleines should come out clean after one minute of rest in the non-stick pan.
  9. Dust the shell sides with confectioners’ sugar (optional) before serving.

#1: OT(ea) Chiffon Cake

20141021_070400

To start off strong, my first bake challenge is an OT cake. That is, an O-shaped Green Tea chiffon cake. This green cake is to celebrate the end of OT (occupational therapy) month, and was inspired by another OT. Plus, the aim of my PhD (and hence this 200bakechallenge) is to improve people’s lives through OT research! Listen to this impressive rap song about OT!

I used matcha green tea powder, and the recipe can be found here. I was a little nervous because it was my first time making chiffon cake, but it turned out well 🙂

If you are reading this blog for the first time and wondering what this 200bakechallenge is all about, everything will be explained here!
