Green Tea Tiramisu Recipe (Irresistible Matcha Italian Cake with NO Heavy Cream) | Cooking with Dog
100 Comments


Hi, I’m Francis, the host of this show “Cooking with Dog.” Today we are making Tiramisu with matcha green tea powder instead of using cocoa powder. Let’s prepare the ingredients. Cut the castella sponge cake into 7mm (0.3″) slices. Partially freezing the cake makes it easy to slice. Cut the 2 slices into small triangular pieces. These will be used to fill the gaps of the dessert bowl later. Next, add a small amount of hot water to the matcha green tea powder and mix it thoroughly. This process will help the matcha dissolve completely. Then, add the water and rum. Stir the matcha liquid well. Now, place the egg yolk in a bowl and add half of the sugar. Using a balloon whisk, beat the egg mixture thoroughly until it turns a light color as shown. Add one third of the mascarpone cheese. Press it with a spatula and thoroughly combine the mixture. Add another one third of the mascarpone. The mixture easily separates so you might want to avoid using a hand mixer. Add the rest of the mascarpone and mix. Finally, lightly mix with a balloon whisk to combine it evenly. Next, float the bowl of egg white on ice water and lightly beat it with a hand mixer. Then, add the rest of the sugar in 3 steps. Now, the meringue begins to have a glossy texture. Thoroughly beat the meringue until it reaches a stiff peak stage. Lift the beaters to check if the stiff peaks form. Add half of the meringue to the cheese mixture. Lift the mixture with a balloon whisk and gently drop it into the bowl. This will help to avoid breaking the foam and also combine the mixture quickly. Add the other half of the meringue and combine. Unlike our previous tiramisu, this recipe doesn’t heat the egg so be sure to use eggs that can be eaten raw or find pasteurized eggs. Finally, lightly fold the cheese mixture with a spatula. Let’s make the matcha tiramisu. Place the fruit granola into a dessert bowl. Arrange the castella slices onto the bottom. Authentic Italian tiramisu uses Savoiardi biscuits also known as ladyfingers but other types of sponge cake are also used. Fill the gaps with the small pieces of castella. Using a pastry brush, soak the castella with a generous amount of the matcha liquid. Place the cheese mixture into the bowl and flatten the surface. Arrange the castella on top. The dessert bowl we used in the video serves 2 people, but you can also make the tiramisu in one large container for 6 people. Soak the castella with the matcha liquid again. Place the cheese mixture onto it. Castella is a relatively sweet sponge cake so we used a minimal amount of sugar, but you can adjust the amount according to your taste. With a scraper, even out the surface. Finally, sprinkle on the matcha green tea powder. Clean the edges of the bowl and thoroughly chill the tiramisu in the fridge for 2 hours. This tiramisu doesn’t use any heavy cream, but it has a rich taste and light and fluffy texture. This elegant dessert really makes the green color of the matcha stand out. We are very glad that one of the most popular Italian desserts goes great with Japanese matcha green tea powder! Good luck in the kitchen.

  4. So glad to see another wonderful video from you chef, miss seeing Francis with you but good to see you keeping his spirit alive.

  5. I didn't.know that Francis is in heaven now.. 🙁 I was really thinking about him. 🙁 Dogs are just wonderful gifts from above…. We don't deserve them yet they gave their love. <3 Francis will always be in our hearts..

  6. I'm hungry already. Looks so good! (this is my first video. I'm sorry to hear about Francis. It's great to know you're keeping his spirit alive with this!)

  7. I didn't know Francis passed away, I will miss to see how excited he was every time the chef ate some of the finished dish! Best regards from Mexico

  8. Somehow Francis's absence hit me especially hard this video. He's never coming back. It's always going to be a plushie or a photograph from now on. It makes me feel lonely. And the first anniversary of his death is just a couple days away…

  9. Hi Chef! Cold and flu season is beginning. I am wondering if you would be able to show us how to make oyaku. I am most interested in ingredients that would help with nausea. Thanks so much! I can't wait for the next video. 😉

  10. Tbh I expected the recipe to basically be the classic tiramisu, simply replacing the coffee with matcha flavor.
    Instead we get an original recipe idea that uses castella and granola, which is quite typical for Japanese desserts. Cooking With Dog never fails to impress. 😀

  11. I haven't watched in a long time and didn't know Francis had passed on. I legit cried watching. He was my dog, too. 😥😥

  12. sees stuffed animal francis bursts into tears at work I will always watch this channel, thank you for continuing to teach us wonderful recipes Chef ❤

  13. I'm not going to lie. After Francis died, I stoped watching the channel because I was so sad about him passing on. Everytime I tried to watch a new video, it made me so sad that I couldn't bare it. Its been a year now…but as time has passed and seeing chef so positive and happy all the time reminds me that life is life and u got to let go and move on. It doesn't mean you are forgetting anyone cus no one can replace Francis. He will always be in our hearts.
