{Recipe} Creme Brulee Green Tea Chiffon Cake

Combining the boy's and my favourite desserts - creme brulee and green tea ;)

Sprinkled too much sugar before torching :( 
Hence they started dripping down all over the cake before I could get a nice caramelized torched top. Looks more like a creme caramel?

This creme brulee was so simple to make and taste really good!

And of course, my favourite green tea chiffon cake :) 

It was a wonderful mix of textures! Soft, rich pudding with a crispy top and fragrant, spongy green tea chiffon cake :)



1. Pour 60g sugar into a deep skillet and heat over low heat.

2. Once the caramel starts browning at the edges, drag the sugar towards towards the center to prevent any burnt spots. 

3. Once the caramel turns dark amber, pour it into a 6" round pan.

3. Set aside and leave it to cool. 



2 eggs
1/4 cup sugar

1 cup whole milk

1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste


1. Add in milk and sugar into a sauce pan.

2. As soon as the sugar dissolves, turn off the heat. 

3. In a large bowl, whisk eggs until blended then add in the warm milk slowly. 

4. Add vanilla paste and whisk well. 

5. Strain the custard mixture into the 6" round pan.

  1. I love that so many of your recipes incorporate matcha! Which brand of matcha powder do you use?
