Don't know you, but I have a big obsession with tiramisu. The creamy mascarpone cheese layer with coffee flavor just excelled all other trifles or cheesecake, and personally I really enjoy my eggless version. This week, I worked with my original tiramisu recipe again and gave it a Japanese kick!
For matcha freaks out there, say yay!
In this recipe, matcha powder is used instead of cocoa powder; a homemade matcha syrup is also used in replace of coffee. I have also tried a condensed milk version and if your trying out this recipe, watch out for the level of caffine!
2 tbsp matcha powder
3 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp rum
100ml hot water
250g mascarpone cheese
1/2 can (14oz) sweetened condensed milk
matcha powder, for dusting
How to make green tea matcha tiramisu:

- In a medium bowl, cream together mascarpone cheese, condensed milk.
- To assemble, place lady fingers and spoon syrup over them. Dollop cheese mixture on top. Repeat the process until final layer of cheese and dust with matcha powder.
- Chill overnight, scoop and serve.
