  • Vegan Matcha Maleines

    I am not Vegan but I enjoy trying new recipes and tastes. So I looked for a Vegan recipe with Matcha and found one for a cake. I changed some of the proportions and ingredients a few times before finding the best way to make it. For example, the original recipe is sugar free so I added some. As you will see in the pictures, I tried with milk rice and sunflower oil, but let me advice you that it is not the better way to make it! Milk rice is tasteless and sunflower oil too strong. I changed it for coconut milk (sooo good) and grape seed oil (perfect…
