Green tea cakes

I managed to get out of bed early enough this morning to do a little wedding ritual for a friend who got married today on the other side of the country. Mr. J promised me shopping for the last ingredient for green tea cakes, "matcha" (green tea powder). We journeyed to the Stash tea store and paid far too much money for a few ounces of green tea powder and a bag of red rooibos tea (but I got a free container!).

The tea cakes turned out very nice. It's my new favourite dessert. The green tea powder gives it a very faint flavour; if you didn't know it was there, you might not pick up on it. These are very dense little tea cakes, and I am looking forward to enjoying some tonight with my new tea and the latest copy of combat handguns magazine.

They are really good! Next I'm going to make pancake batter with the self-rising flour and steam those in the silicone cups as well. Pan-tea-cake, anyone?
