Steamed Houjicha and Matcha Olive Oil Cakes

Houjicha Mushi Cake

I love and love donabe steam tea cakes! And both Houjicha and Matcha flavors are my top favorites. The rectangular mold with a removable tray is also a must-have item for me, and I make so many things with this mold. Here, I wrote down Houjicha Olive Oil Steam Cake recipe. For the Matcha version, you can simply substitute the houjicha with 1 tablespoon of matcha powder and reduce the hot water to 2 tablespoons. For these, I used extra virgin olive oil and almond milk, so the recipe is dairy free and it’s so light and fluffy! Happy Donabe Life!


Iced Houjicha Latte

Quick and super tasty Iced Houjicha Latte with Chocolate Almond Milk. I loves blending it with chocolate almond milk with a splash of date syrup. The roasted flavor of the houjicha goes so well with the chocolate flavor, but feel free to blend with your choice of milk. The experience even enhances with these hand-made Glass Katakuchi Serving Bowl and Cloud Glass Tea Cups from Shiga, Japan.
