Matcha Tiramisu

This is a fun spin on classic tiramisu that uses matcha (green tea) instead of coffee, and are alcohol-free as well. All you need is a packet of store-bought ladyfingers (or you can make your own too), and a few ingredients to make a delicious marscapone cream. For the matcha powder, a culinary grade will work well.

You can essentially make these using a container of any size or shape. I've done it here with a couple of dessert glasses. The recipe below can easily be doubled or tripled. Just remember to let it sit in the fridge for at least a day after assembling, for maximum enjoyment. If you want to see the video process, check out the link below.

For the marscapone cream
  • 100g marscapone 
  • 150ml whipping cream 
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup sugar 
  • 50ml milk 
To assemble
  • 100g ladyfingers
  • 2 tsp matcha powder
  • 80 ml (1/3 cup) hot water
For the marscapone cream
In a large pot over low-medium heat, whisk the egg yolks and sugar. 
Add the milk and continue whisking until mixture thickens. Make sure you continue whisking while it is over the heat to ensure it does not over cook and curdle. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. 
Add the mixture to your marscapone cheese and whisk until combined. 
In another large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks form, then pour cream into marscapone mixture. Fold with spatula until fully combined. 
To assemble
Mix the matcha powder and hot water until powder is fully dissolved.
Cut the ladyfingers if required, to fit into the container of choice.
Pour marscapone cream into a piping bag (if using a cup or tall container)
Dip the ladyfingers into the matcha and assemble to cover the base of the container/cup.
Add a layer of marscapone cream.
Repeat with ladyfingers and marscapone cream until you reach the desired height.
Place in fridge for at least one day. Before serving, dust with matcha powder.
