Matcha Mochi Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

This is my third month participating in a baking group called Bundt Bakers. And I am already enamored with the bloggers and their creative baked goodies.

#BundtBakers is a group of Bundt loving bakers who get together once a month to bake Bundts with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all our of lovely Bundts by following our Pinterest board. We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about BundtBakers, can be found on our home page.

This month's prompt was from Rebekah of Making Miracles. She wrote: "For December's Bundt Bakers, bake up a cake that utilizes the colors red and green - it can be color in your batter, your ingredients, and / or your decorations! Feel free to pick green or red, you don't have to use both."

Here's the red and green line-up...


Matcha

As I do when I think of baking with the color green, I landed on making a bundt cake with matcha.

Just a quick note about Matcha. Matcha is "powdered tea." Unlike drinking other tea when you infuse the tea leaves in water and, then, strain out the leaves, with matcha, you are drinking the finely powdered leaves whisked into hot water. So, spring for the best quality of matcha that you can. There's culinary grade and ceremonial grade. I use ceremonial grade if I'm whisking and drinking; I use culinary grade for baking and cooking.

Ingredients 
makes 4 mini bundts and 4 muffins
or one large bundt
  • 4  eggs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 can (14-ounces) coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons matcha powder
  • 1 box rice flour (Mochiko)
  • Also needed: bundt pans or muffin pans, powdered sugar for dusting

Procedure

Mix the eggs, olive oil, coconut milk, and milk together in a large mixing bowl. Then fold in everything else until just moistened. Spoon the batter into greased mini bundt pans, muffin molds,or large bundt pan. Place on a baking sheet.


Bake for about 30 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit till the top of the cake is slightly browned and slightly cracked. 


Let cool for 10 minutes before turning the cakes onto a cooling rack.


Let cool completely before dusting with powdered sugar and serving.


That's a wrap on the December Bundt Bakers event. We'll be back in the new year; and I'm hosting. I have asked the bloggers to come up with 'A Little Bit of Nostalgia: Bundts with Flavors from Your Childhood.' Stay tuned...

  1. I'll have to make one of these for Bill. He is a matcha fiend. Just this week he was doing backflips when he came across a bag of matcha kitkat bars. Wait until he sees your cake! <3

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
