Is that first ingredient supposed to be "1/2 cup soy yogurt" instead of milk?

oregonblondie ,

Yes you're right. My typing mistake. Will amend it

Thanks

What kind of green tea powder did you use for this recipe? Would something like this work - baking matcha?

Sukkimi said...

Dr Gray,
I use baking green tea powder available from my local bakery store,.

I've also tried using drinking matcha powder, somehow i still prefer the baking matcha for the concentrated aroma and colour.

Hi
How about 'Green tea Glaze'
2 Tbs Margerine
1 cup icing sugar
1/2 tsp matcha powder
1-2 Tbs Soy milk

With a fork beat margerine n sugar until fluffy, add in matcha powder and finally soy milk to the consistency you want.

hope it helps
Regards
Simonne

HI,
yes you may substitute the same amount of soy milk/ rice milk with UHT full cream milk / low fat/ skim milk..but not condensed milk / evaporated milk as they are sweeter
