Matcha~Green Tea Dacquoise


Recipe adapted from Okashi by Keiko Ishida

Matcha Dacquoise~Green Tea Dacquoise

Ingredients


Biscuit Dacquoise
180 g Ground Almonds
80 g Confectioner’s Sugar
10 g Matcha /Green Tea Powder
40 g Caster Sugar
2 g Egg White Powder
200 g (5 large eggs) Whites

Matcha Cream
100g Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
35 g (1 Large Egg) Whites
35 g Confectioner’s Sugar
5 g Matcha/Green Tea Powder

Method

Preheat the oven to 350˚F/180˚C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Sift ground almonds, confectioner’s sugar and matcha with a coarse sieve twice. Set aside.

Meringue: Combine castor sugar and egg white powder. Beat the egg whites until foamy. Add sugar and egg white powder mixture and beat until egg whites are glossy, with stiff peaks.

Add sifted almond mixture to the meringue and fold gently to make the dacquoise batter.

Transfer batter into a piping bag fitted with piping tip. Pipe out small discs (about3.5 cm in diameter) onto parchment paper. Dust with confectioner’s sugar twice and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until dacquoise rises up completely and surface becomes dry.

Matcha Cream: Beat the butter until pale and creamy. With a clean bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Add half the sugar and continue beating. When egg whites have achieved some volume, add remaining sugar and continue to beat until glossy and stiff peaks form.

Add meringue to butter and mix thoroughly. Add matcha and fold well.

Transfer the matcha cream into a piping bag fitted with piping tip. Pipe cream onto flat side of the dacquoise discs. Top with another disc, flat side down.

For best results, make dacquoises and assemble them the day before serving and let chill in the refrigerator. They can be kept for up to 3 days.

Makes 16 to 18 Dacquoises

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
