Last week I made a matcha bread with white chocolate. I received many trade requests on this bread so I did not get to really one myself. Therefore I was really happy to get the feedback from Mirjan (image). Mirjan traded a massage for a bread. Thank You!
Last week I also traded with Laura from Tausendsünd. I have already told you about Laura, the magic cake queen that makes one of the few Sweet things that I eat. We met through Bread Exchange since she can’t bake bread – and I can not bake cakes. Since then I bake Bread for her dinners and she makes magic cakes for birthdays for me. As an example, the birthday cake for my BF was a Blackberry cake with sea salted Caramel, Wodka-Tonkabean-buttercream, covered in belgian chocolate with nicaraguan choco nibs. Or the cake for my friend Elins Baby shower was a prezel cake with seasalted caramel. Yes, she takes private orders too.
I usually do not ask for a specific trade but last week I did. I asked Laura to share with you a sweet recipe with Matcha. And she shared 2. I will post the other one soon. Enjoy! (in German on the bottom of the post)
VEGAN MATCHA WAFFLE
550 g spelt flour
730 ml soy milk
Juice of 2 squeezed oranges
100 ml heatable oil (such as coconut oil)
1/2 tsp sea salt
3 tablespoons raw cane sugar
Mark of 2 vanilla beans
1 tablespoon Matcha
3 tsp baking powder
Mix the orange juice with the soymilk and let it stay for a while (like 2 min) until it becomes uneven. Mix the flour, baking powder salt and sugar in a separate bowl. In a 3rd bowl, mix the matcha powder with oil until smooth and there are no chunks. Add the flour mix slowly to the soymilk mix while you stir. Add the matcha/oil mix and stir until the dough is smooth.
The waffles works great with a vegan chocolate syrup
300 g of sugar
100 g unsweetened cocoa powder
Mark from 1 vanilla pod
a pinch of tonka bean
Stir all ingredients until smooth and let simmer over a low flame until it turns into a thick syrup.
I asked for honest opinions on my matcha bread. This is the feedback I got:
I agree with Laura. It could have been more Matcha taste. Together with the artisan white chocolate I used a whole package of matcha (30 euro/package- no cheap stuff) for 4 breads so it was a quite heavy baking session. The matcha bread is for special occasions.
