CAKE MODE!

Cake mode? Yes, cake mode! I made a Pistachio Matcha pound cake in my bread maker! I added 1.5tsp of sifted matcha to the pound cake recipe that came with the instructions. The cake came out slightly green.

Flavor is sweet, with a hint of pistachio but with lots of pistachio aftertaste. Overall came out very good and tortured the entire house while it baked – I would try again, maybe adding more matcha and another flavor. I was tempted to do a fruity matcha, but I’d also like to add fruit and not sure how to pull that off in the breadmaker.

I love love love baking with matcha. It adds such a lovely punch of flavor and makes simple desserts seem a lot more rich and decadent.

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
