Matcha green tea tiramisu recipe

Looking for some inspiration, try this Matcha Tiramisu. It really is sooooooo Good.


9 oz marscarpone cheese
3 egg yolks
1/4 cup white sugar
1 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon matcha powder
splash of hot water


1. In a small sauce pan with 1″ of simmering water, place a heat-proof bowl on top. Ensure that the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Place the egg yolks and sugar into the bowl, and beat with a hand mixer until pale and fluffy.
2. In a stand-up mixer with the paddle attachment, cream the mascarpone cheese until light and fluffy. It’s best to leave it out on the counter for at least 15-30 minutes before using.
3. Fold in 1/3 of the egg yolk mixture into the mascarpone with a spatula. Fold in the rest until incorporated.
4. In a stand-up mixture with the whisk attachment, whisk the whipping cream until soft peaks form. Fold in the whipped cream into the mascarpone/egg yolk mixture.
5. Divide the completed mascarpone cream into two bowls.
6. In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of matcha powder with a bit of hot water (just enough to dissolve the matcha powder).
7. Add the matcha into one of the bowls with the mascarpone cream and mix until well-blended. Set aside.

Honey Syrup

1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon grand marnier

In a small sauce pan, bring the above ingredients to a boil and turns into a syrupy consistency. Set aside.
