Matcha Cheese Cake

Matcha Cheese Cake
A cafe in Kyoto started serving matcha cheese cake in a masu (wooden sake cup) and it became a huge hit. We tried to recreate it and it tastes good. Plus, it's not too hard to make. You can use your own cups!
  • 3-4 slices thin sliced bread (or store bought sponge cake)
  • 1½ Tablespoons matcha powder
  • 1½ Tablespoons sugar
  • 2/5 cup (100 ml) boiling hot water
  • ⅘ cup (450ml) heavy cream
  • 3-4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 package (8oz) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3 Tablespoons plain yogurt
  • matcha powder to dust
  1. Tear thinly sliced bread into small pieces and lay them on the bottom of the cups.
  2. Mix matcha powder and sugar and add hot water to make a matcha syrup. Stir well.
  3. Pour the matcha syrup over the bread in the cup and set aside.
  4. Put the heavy cream and sugar in a bowl and whip with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
  5. Put the cream cheese and yogurt in another large bowl and mix well with an electric mixer.
  6. Add the heavy whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture and mix well.
  7. Ladle the cream mixture on top of the soaked bread pieces.
  8. Using a tea strainer, sprinkle matcha powder on top.
