Tofu and Matcha tea are considered for good reasons as health food here in Japan.
They can also be combinedinto a very European/American style cake: Muffins!
INGREDIENTS: For about 6 muffins
-Tofu (kinu tofu): 150 g (no need to press waterout)
-Wheat (use one of your preference): 4 tablespoons
-Cornstarch: 2 tablespoons
-Cream powder: 2 tablespoons
-Sugar: 3 tablespoons
-Matcha tea powder: one and a half tablespoons
-Butter: 15 g
-Baking powder: 1 teaspoon
-Melt butter inside microwave oven.
Take out and pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
-Drop all ingredients inside a food processor and process until you obtain a smooth mixture.
-Fill muffin cups with mixture up to nine tenths height.
(Pouring the whole lot in an oiled/buttered pound cake mold is fine, too)
-Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 25 minutes (Check colour as all ovens have their own “character”)
-Let them cool completely.
If you don’t eat them at once, wrap them in cellophane paper and leave inside refrigerator or in a very dry box.
Best enjoyed with tea? LOL
