I leave you with this super simple recipe. I love matcha in everything, as you can see here, here, here, here, here, and here. Okay, I didn't realize there were going to be so many links. Also, check out what I made in prep for lunar new year's below. It's a pseudo Japanese kagami-mochi... something you'll find everywhere for new year's. It's supposed to bring you lots of luck and prosperity for the new year, which is something I really need for this exam (literally a miracle please).
Anyway, this is seriously my final good bye... seriously :P. I will be back soon though XOXO
Matcha Mochi Waffles with Maple Grapefruit Syrupserves 4-5
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup mochiko
2 tbsp sugar
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp matcha tea powder (from Panatea)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp melted butted
3/4 - 1 cup buttermilk
Maple Grapefruit Syrup
1 grapefruit, segmented
- Preheat oven to high broil setting. Lay segmented grapefruit on a lined baking tray. Sprinkle generously with brown sugar and just a little streak of maple syrup over them. Broil until caramelized
- For the waffles, mix dry ingredients in a large bowl (flour to salt) and the wet ingredients in another bowl. Combine and mix so no lumps remain
- Preheat waffle iron and make waffles like you usually do!
- Serve hot waffles with grapefruit and more maple syrup
Here, I dressed up the waffles to look like kagami-mochi decorations you find around Japan during the Lunar New year. This makes me laugh hahaha.
