Matcha, White Chocolate & Macadamia Brownie

Matcha, White Chocolate & Macadamia Brownie

I have been thinking what I should call this cake. This is not ‘Brownie’ because it is not brown. It’s green but I can’t call it ‘Greenie’ because it just sounds awful. Then I ended up calling it ‘Matcha & White Chocolate Brownie’. The Macadamia nuts are optional but I recommend this addition. I have made this cake with Almonds or Walnuts, and I truly believe Macadamia Nuts are the best option. Did you know that Macadamia nuts are native to Australia?

    Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until cooked though. Leave to cool in the pan as the cake is very soft and delicate. Cut into squares and dust with Matcha Powder or/and Powdered Sugar.
