The simplicity of this dessert will surprise you. I love matcha, and Matcha tiramisu is as elegant as the drink. Kids can enjoy this one without the fear of caffeine. Matcha balances out the rich and heavy feel of the cream, making it light.
The best part is it takes less than 20 minutes and looks classy on your dinner table. Not to mention, matcha is healthy. I made individual tiramisu cups, but the choice is yours. You can make it in a relatively bigger dish that is transparent. I love to see the layers. It would be best if you ended the layering with whipped cream. Dust it with matcha powder just before serving.
The styling was kept light and airy by adding a sakura branch. I prefer using fresh blooms but took my chances with this to give the picture a more oriental look.
Make this classic Italian dessert with a Japanese twist; trust me, you will love it!!
