ZenMatcha Green Tea Pudding
Yield: (Serves 4oz cup x 8)
5 oz sugar
21 oz milk (warmed to 100 degrees F)
0.25 oz matcha green tea powder
2.5 oz hot water
caramel sauce (see recipe below)
Mix eggs and sugar together until smooth.
In a bowl, mix the ZenMatcha powder and hot water, then combine with hot milk (100°F)
Combine all the above, mix well, then strain.
Pour mixture into cups/ramekins with caramel sauce in the bottom, place cups in the pan with 1" water, then bake for 1 hour 20 minutes at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. After 60 minutes, check the cups to see if they are stable.
(KEY) Cups must be resting in the pan with hot water so the pudding does not dry out.
3.5 oz sugar
3 teaspoons hot water
Put the sugar in the small pan and heat over medium heat.
After sugar turns to be golden brown, add boiling water without stirring sugar. Once the sugar is completely melted remove from the burner.
Pour the caramel sauce into the cups while it is hot.
