Easy and Delicious Matcha & Azuki Cream Cake

Matcha is the new taste of the world. Combine it with azuki beans to make it invincible!

Recipe By: Kumamon girl (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/445)
Serves 6-8

Ingredients

Self raising flour 100g
Eggs 2
Granulated sugar 100g
Butter (salted) 50g
Vanilla extract 1 tsp
Honey (in a bit of water) 1 tsp
Matcha powder 1 level tbsp
Azuki bean cream:
Double cream 150g
Sugar 20g
Tinned sweet azuki beans 1/2 (100g)

Method

1
Put the butter in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Add the sugar and mix, then add the eggs and mix thoroughly.
2
Add the vanilla extract and the honey loosened in some water and mix well. Sieve the flour and matcha powder into the bowl.
3
Mix it gently - if it mixes too much, gluten will form and it become dense. Lightly rub some butter inside a 30cm diameter cake tin and pour in the mixture.
4
Bake for 16-18 minutes in an oven that has been preheated to 180℃. Check with a skewer that nothing sticks! Allow to cool to room temperature.
5
In the meantime, make the azuki bean cream. Put the double cream and sugar in a bowl and whisk to stiff peaks. Add the sweet azuki beans and mix well.
6
Remove the cooled cake from Step 4 from the tin and Cut horizontally into two thin slices. Spread one half with the cream from Step 5 right to the edge.
7
Cover with the other half. Enjoy!
8
Even though I'm just a home cook, I think this cake might make the world smile (maybe).

Tips & Note

Tinned sweet azuki beans in Japanese food stores in London are mostly 200g. This recipe requires only 100g, so what to do with the other half? Make 2 cakes!

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.
 
Looking for an easy alternative to a traditional seafood boil? Need a simple recipe that works for both fresh or frozen seafood? If so, you need to see my Easy Seafood Pot recipe in episode 108 of POV Italian Cooking
 
Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto. This risotto serves as the bed upon which Beef Osso Buco will rest in the next episode (#107).
 
It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
