Matcha Tea-ramisu in a Cup

We are back with our written recipes... It may sound absurd but our graphic tablet got a little wonky and we are not able to produce infographic / illustrations for our recipes.

We like to update our recipe post with full content before we post it so there was a delay with them.

Catching up slowly with the work so remember to come back for great recipe illustrations, share and pin them if you enjoyed it, we really appreciate your support :)

I. Matcha is a type of green tea and comes in powder form, can be bought in Asian markets and Tea stores
II. Make sure your bowl and utensils is free of oil when whipping your egg whites, as oil will prevent the whites from whipping. Egg yolk is a form of oil so you must be careful when your are separating your eggs
III. For Kids, you can omit all the liqueurs, it will lack a bit of flavor but the children wouldn’t notice
IV. Matcha is a green with a slight bitterness to it, just like cocoa powder and coffee so it makes a great match to the mascarpone cream
