Matcha Bavarois

Matcha Bavarois

I tried to reproduce the plate layout of a famous Japanese cafe.
The photo features the dessert with just a bit of matcha. Adjust to your liking!

Ingredients: 4 servings

6-10 g
Boiling water
2-3 tablespoons
Egg yolks
200 ml
Granulated sugar
60 g
Powdered gelatin
5 g
1 tablespoon
Heavy cream
150 ml
Heavy cream
50 ml
Condensed milk
10 g


1. Dissolve and blend the matcha in boiling water. Soak the gelatin in water.
2. Beat egg yolks in a pot. Stir in milk and granulated sugar, and mix thoroughly.
3. Continue stirring over low heat. Remove from heat when it's creamy and the bubbles on the surface disappear.
4. Add matcha and gelatin to the pot and mix well. Strain through a tea strainer into a bowl. Cool the bowl over ice water and mix occasionally until it has thickened.
5. Add whipped cream and mix thoroughly. Transfer to a serving container and chill in the fridge.
6. Add condensed milk to heavy cream and whisk. Top on the bavarois and serve.
