Sake Matcha Tiramisu – Recipe

Since I've been out and about a lot this week, I just wanted to make a small, quick fix for dessert. I've been thinking I've never made a matcha tiramisu before, and I had some sake in my fridge for the alcohol part. Why not make a sake matcha tiramisu for one?

This recipe literally only takes a few minutes. Ready? Let's go.

Ingredients for Sponge Layer:

2 tsp matcha
100ml hot water
2 tsp caster sugar
2 tbsp sake (preferably daiginjo or hojonzo grade)
3 sponge finger biscuits

Ingredients for Cream:

3 tbsp mascarpone
3 tbsp sake
2 tsp caster sugar

To Finish:

1/2 tsp matcha, for dusting


1. For the sponge layer, whisk the matcha, water and sugar together until well combined, and add the sake. Trim the sponge fingers to the width of your container (in my case a sake masu cup), and soak them in the matcha mixture before laying at the bottom of your container.

2. Lightly whisk the cream ingredients together until smooth, and spoon on top of the soaked biscuits. Finish by dusting with matcha through a sieve (I laid some foil down so I didn't make a mess!).

You can either eat this straight away for a soft cream, or pop it in the fridge for a couple of hours to set a little.

Enjoy, and have fun.
