Baking with matcha FAQ
- Use culinary grade matcha when baking. Since you are mixing the matcha with ingredients other than water, culinary grade matcha is all you need. Save the ceremonial grade matcha for traditional matcha.
- Sift the matcha into your ingredients when baking to avoid clumps.
- Use pure matcha. There is a lot of matcha on the market that has fillers like flour, cornstarch, or other teas. Even though you are using culinary grade matcha instead of ceremonial grade, it should be a good quality culinary grade matcha. There are many great options out there. I buy this culinary grade matcha.
- Matcha is finely ground tea leaves so does not dissolve in liquid. Since it is not soluble, instead of aiming to dissolve the matcha powder, you are looking to disperse the matcha into the rest of the dessert. If mixing it into a liquid, you are suspending the leaves throughout the liquid.
- Making your own matcha recipe? Here is the ratio I usually use when baking with matcha: Use about 1 teaspoon of matcha per serving, or per cup.
