bowb brought forth the challenge, and this is my response: a matcha green tea sponge cake lamington, with a red bean and double cream filling, lightly coated with a smooth red bean paste and dessicated coconut. i simply added a few teaspoonfuls of matcha powder to a standard sponge cake recipe baked in a square pan, cooled it, cut it in half and spread double cream on one side, and a chunky red bean paste on the other, then sandwiched the halves together and froze the cake for easier handling. i cut the cake into cubes, spread a thin layer of smooth red bean paste on all sides, then rolled it in dessicated coconut.
deelish. i woulda never have thunk it, so i'm glad she did. hope it meets your standards, cakelet queen!
