Recipe |抹茶漸層慕斯蛋糕 Matcha Gradient Mousse Cake


Hi! As a matcha lover, when I first saw a Youtuber video from Amanda Tastes about how to make a matcha mousse cake, I was deeply attracted and intrigued. Her matcha mousse cake has layers of matcha with different gradient, and it looked so cute. Therefore, I decided to challenge myself to bake this amazing looking gradient matcha mousse cake. 

身為抹茶控的我, 看到Youtuber曼食慢语分享的超療癒系漸層慕斯蛋糕,
馬上被它深深吸引, 一圈一圈的漸層綠色看起來好療愈
所以決定參考她的食譜來挑戰看看”漸變抹茶慕斯蛋糕”

Material – Cake Bottom
材料 – 蛋糕底

IMG_3282

For the mousse cake, you can choose between two ways to make the bottom of the cake. One is to make a sponge cake bottom; another is to use crushed graham cracker mix with butter to press out the cake bottom. To make a sponge cake bottom, you would need the following ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of Matcha Powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 60-gram of granulated sugar
  • 60-gram of cake flour
  • 60-gram of milk
  • 25-gram of vegetable oil
  • 1 pinch of salt

做這種蛋糕可以用2種底層,一是烤一個海綿蛋糕當底,二是拿消化餅乾壓碎拌入融化的奶油壓成底。烤海綿蛋糕的話,你需要以下材料:

  • 1大匙抹茶粉
  • 3顆蛋
  • 60克糖
  • 60克低筋麵粉
  • 60克牛奶
  • 25克植物油
  • 1小撮鹽

 

Material – Mousse Mixture
材料 – 慕斯糊


Because you don’t need to bake the mousse mixture here, you can adjust each ingredient to your own liking.

  • 1 tablespoon of matcha powder
  • 125-gram of milk
  • 175-gram of heavy whipping cream
  • 100-gram of cream cheese (or mascarpone cheese)
  • 12-gram of gelatin powder
  • 30-gram of granulated sugar

因為慕斯不用烤,所以材料可以依個人喜好調整。材料大致如下:

  • 1大匙抹茶粉
  • 125 克牛奶
  • 175克鮮奶油
  • 100克奶油乳酪(可替換馬斯卡彭乳酪)
  • 12克吉利丁粉(或是2片吉利丁片)

The London Plane is an absolutely beautiful and chic restaurant. The second I walked in, I quickly fell in love with the atmosphere and the interior design. There are an array of flowers, baked goods, open kitchen, high ceiling, and lots of natural lights!

The London Plane 是一家非常適合拍照打卡的網美店,
當我一踏進店裡, 馬上被整個氛圍吸引
一整排的新鮮花束, 剛出爐的麵包,
開放式廚房, 挑高的空間, 以及充足的自然光

albacore, provolone, picked peppers, celery & aioli

Food was good but way too overpriced for what I get. I have to admit that each dish was beautifully plated. They were both very flavorful, clean and simple.

食物方面表現都不錯, 只是份量不多,價位偏高
食物的擺盤呈現深得我心
兩份餐點的調味都很到位
吃起來很新鮮清爽

Momoshares – Behind the scenes

Since I started posting my homemade breakfast series on Instagram, I’ve been fielding questions about how I style my food. Therefore, I decided to film a short video to show you guys one of my regular morning routines. (This first video of mine is inspired by Tasty. But instead of the “oh yes” sound at the end, mine is a camera shutter sound.)

Please let me know if you would like to watch more videos on #behindthescenes or you want to know how I edit my photos. Simply leave a comment below or PM me.
Thank you for following me, and I hope you enjoy the video!

I came to Slate Coffee Roasters to try their “Deconstructed Latte”; you get 3 wine glasses: 1st glass contains the espresso shots, 2nd glass contains the steamed milk, finally, the 3rd glass is both of them mixed together. (I wish they have used the same glass to serve all 3 ). When they serve it, the barista first explained the origins and flavor profile of the coffee beans and the milk. For the drinks, you should start with the espresso, then move to the milk, and lastly sip the latte which features both ingredients combined. You could really taste the sweetness of the milk in the latte, and I personally fell in love with the milk they used. I asked them which brand they are using, and the friendly barista wrote down the two local dairy brand they are using: Pure Eire and Twin Brook.

我來Slate Coffee Roasters試他們的“Deconstructed Latte”
“Deconstructed Latte”
的中文應該是解構拿鐵
店員會將濃縮咖啡, 牛奶, 和拿鐵 分別放在三個玻璃杯里
(
我希望我的三個杯子都長得一樣)
當咖啡師端咖啡來的時候會給我們一點關於咖啡豆和牛奶的介紹
喝的時候, 從濃縮咖啡開始, 再來牛奶, 最後拿鐵
品嘗的時候可以感受到牛奶的甜,
Slate Coffee Roasters
所採用的牛奶香甜
我特地去問店員他們是使用哪家的牛奶
咖啡師細心地將他們使用的牛奶寫給我
是兩家在地的乳製品公司: Pure Eire and Twin Brook

【Seattle】Il Corvo __ Weekday Lunch only Italian spot for homemade pastas #Italian #Seattle

Il Corvo|Seattle

Phone: (206) 538-0999
Hours: Mon-Fri 11am-3pm


I’ve been hearing about Il Corvo Pasta for quite a while now, so I was excited that I finally got to try it out. When I got there the line was way out of the door. ( I guess this is a good sign that the food is awesome here)

好幾年前就聽說過Il Corvo Pasta, 終於有機會來試吃讓我很期待.  當我到的時候, 排隊的隊伍已經到門外了 (我猜這表示Il Corvo Pasta一定很好吃)

IMG_1143.JPG

Il Corvo is only open Monday-Friday from 11am-3pm, so you better make time for it during lunch hour. Il Corvo makes things simple and easy since there are threes rotating pasta on the menu to choose from. This is amazing for someone like me who always had a hard time on deciding things 😛

Il Corvo Pasta只有開禮拜一到五的中午十一點到3點, 這裡每天提供的義大利麺口味不一樣. 我來的這天有三種口味可以選擇. 這樣精簡的Menu非常適合我這種有選擇障礙的人 😛

IMG_1114.JPG

My friend and I shared: Pappardelle Alla Bolognese, Pasta Mista, Cookie, and House Made Focaccia. They are all amazing!

I love their House Made Focaccia. It’s crispy on the outside while pillowy and chewy on the inside. Dipping it in olive oil made it tasted even better.

For their pasta dishes, there was more pasta compared to the sauce. However, the chief seasoned the sauce perfectly, so it tasted savory, creamy, and flavorful! I enjoyed the freshness of the ingredients in the pasta.

我和我朋友一起分享: Pappardelle Alla Bolognese, Pasta Mista, Cookie, House Made Focaccia. 全部都很美味!

很推薦他們的佛卡夏,  外皮酥脆, 裡面卻依舊鬆軟,  剝一小塊下來沾橄欖油讓佛卡夏的香氣更為迷人.

他們的義大利麺, 醬料看起來不多. 但廚師調味卻恰到好處, 吃起來很夠味, 也能吃出食材的新鮮.

Brunch Sat & Sun 10am-3pm


I came to Vivo 53 because I have always wanted to try the carbonara served on cheese wheel, especially after I watched the BuzzFeedVideo which is comparing $8 pasta to $100 pasta. Therefore, I decided to come here during Sunday brunch time.

最近我看了BuzzFeedVideo的影片
影片中他們將$8 $100的義大利麺進行比較
其中$100的義大利麺是在整個起司上面炒義大利麺
作為起司控, 看完之後超想試試看!
所以我決定來Vivo53嘗試

Tuscan Fried Chicken & Waffle. vanilla maple syrup, honey butter, sea salt $17

A fluffy and sweet waffle is topped with a perfectly seasoned crispy fried chicken. The chicken meat was on the dry side, and I wished it could be moister. I like their vanilla maple syrup as it is delicious and goes well with the dish.

鬆軟的鬆餅上面鋪著調味剛好的酥脆炸雞
雞肉本身偏乾, 我喜歡比較濕潤的口感
餐點本身搭配的楓糖漿很好吃

NEW PARMIGIANO CHEESE WHEEL SERVED TABLE SIDE.ALA CARBONARA. spaghetti, guanciale, egg yolk, parmesan brodo, grated parmesan $22

It was fun to watch when the server brought the whole cheese wheel next to the table, place the pasta into the cheese, and then toss the hot pasta until the cheese slowly melts and combines with the pasta. While it was an Interesting experience, the taste was disappointing. it was way too salty for me. Also, for the amount of food, the price is not friendly at all.

這道料理上桌前, 服務生會將一整個起司帶到桌邊
將還是熱的義大利麺加入到起司中間
然後馬上拌炒, 讓義大利麺的熱氣融化起司
因為是第一次看到, 覺得很有趣
但口味讓我失望, 對我而言整體調味過鹹
也讓我覺得不值得這個價錢

Overall, it was an entertaining dining experience at Vivo 53. I would expect the food and the service to be better next time.

整體而言, Vivo53的用餐體驗很有趣
但我期待食物和服務可以再加強

Bellden Cafe is a brand new coffee shop located in Bellevue. With high ceilings, lots of natural lights, and some cute plants decorations, this cafe is definitely a place where you can take amazing Instagram photos. Staffs here were very friendly and attentive. It was such a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

For pastries, I tried their Kouign Amann. It was my first time trying this dessert, and I loved it. I adored the caramelized exterior with croissant-liked filling on the inside. It’s sweet, flaky, and very buttery. I guess the only thing I didn’t quite enjoy was my latte,  I would have preferred a stronger tasting latte.

Bellden Cafe 是一家在Bellevue新開的咖啡廳
這裡很適合拍照打卡
挑高的天花板, 充足的自然光, 和隨處可見的可愛植物裝飾
店員都很友好, 讓人覺得很舒適溫馨
我點了Bellden Cafe Kouign Amann法國黃油酥餅
這是我第一次嘗試這款甜點,
我很愛那外層的焦糖口感,
但裡面卻有著可頌層層疊疊的香酥和鬆脆
一口咬下焦糖的甜香混合著奶油的乳香, 是甜蜜的味道
這裡讓我唯一不滿意的是我的拿鐵
我期待咖啡香氣更為濃郁的拿鐵

Churro Calientes is a small restaurant with seriously delicious Churros and they definitely satisfy a sweet tooth. I highly recommend their Churros con Chocolate. It comes with six classic crispy golden brown churros and a cup of Spanish style homemade rich hot dipping chocolate sauce. The chocolate sauce is so thick, creamy, yet not overly sweet. When you dip the churro into the hot chocolate, it quickly soaks the chocolate up and absorbs all that goodness, Yummy!

Churro Calientes是一家專門賣吉拿棒的小店
他們的吉拿棒絕對可以滿足你的甜點胃
我最推薦他們的Churros con Chocolate
這份裡面有六根炸的金黃酥脆的吉拿棒
和一杯西班牙家庭式的熱巧克力醬
巧克力醬非常的香濃且不會太甜
當你拿吉拿棒去沾巧克力醬,
吉拿棒會吸收滿滿的巧克力醬汁
濃郁的巧克力搭配外酥內軟的吉拿棒超級美味!

This Blue Bottle is located pretty much across the street from the Grand Central Market. I’m super into any place with modern vibes and ample natural light. Therefore, this place was perfect for me! Coffee was above average. A great place to relax after exploring downtown LA.
