就让我来做一个简易抹茶红豆刨冰消消暑吧 *^_^*

Matcha Granita
(makes 2 glasses)

1 tsp good quality matcha powder 
1 Tbsp fine sugar
300g boiling water

Azuki beans
kinako powder

1. Combine all ingredients in a small jug. Stir well & strain into a bowl.
2. Freeze for 2hrs. Then mix well, breaking up the crystals around the edge of the bowl & mixing them toward the center. Freeze for 1hr, then mix again.
3. Scratch up the granita with a fork & put in a small glass. 
4. Add azuki beans & sift some kinako powder over before serve. 

Kinako Granita
(makes 2 glasses)

2 Tbsp Kinako powder  
300g boiling water
Azuki beans
刨冰有很浓的黄豆粉味是我喜欢的。因为我用了日本罐装的红豆,所以Kinako Granita不须加糖。在淋上少许的日本黑蜜更能提升刨冰的层次感。哈哈。。。吃完之后,甜在嘴里,凉在心底。下回我一定要另加一球冰淇淋呐 =)

天然酵母做出来的鬆饼味道真的不错,很喜欢它淡淡的酵母香。由于用了天然酵母,又加上没有鸡蛋的关系,所烘好的鬆饼颜色很浅因此我把waffle maker到4号让它上色。这款鬆饼很容易做,只是在面糊发酵的过程中须要多一点的心。鬆饼可以前一天先混合好,放冰箱密封冷藏發酵一夜,隔天要吃时,先回温再用waffle maker制做。

200g Blue Jacket Cake Flour, sifted
100g natural yeast
30g fine sugar
200g Cowhead UHT milk
10g Cowhead salted butter, melted

1. Combine flour & sugar in a mixing bowl.
2. Add in yeast, milk & butter. Using a balloon whisk, whisk the mixture till smooth.

因为加入了全麦粉的原故,所以和一般用普通面粉/蛋糕粉的蛋糕体相比,是显得有一点粗, 不够细致。但是这个蛋糕还是很不错吃,蛮鬆软的。橙的味道十足, 又可以咬到脆脆的奇亚籽和香香的橙皮。我给这个蛋糕十个‘Like'
