 Matcha Cream Puffs

cooking time: 30 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4-6)

Choux pastry

  • 250 ml (9 fl oz) water
  • 6 g (¹⁄8 oz) salt
  • 100 g (3½ oz) butter or margarine
  • 150 g (5½ oz) flour mix
  • 5–6 eggs
  • Icing (confectioners’) sugar

Matcha cream

  • 100 g (3½ oz) single (pure) cream
  • 200 g (7 oz) mascarpone cheese
  • 15 g (½ oz) sugar
  • 15 g (½ oz) matcha powder


Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F).

Combine the water, salt and butter or margarine in a saucepan and bring  to the boil.

When the butter has melted, add the flour mix to the boiling butter mixture and quickly mix with a spatula until the mixture is well combined and comes away easily from the side of the pan.

Pour into a mixing bowl and add the eggs, mixing with the spatula until smooth.

Spoon the dough into a piping bag fitted with a 1 cm (½ inch) plain nozzle.

Pipe small balls of choux onto a baking tray lined with  baking paper. Bake for 30 minutes. Let the balls cool before cutting off the top third of each puff.

Make the matcha cream: whisk the well-chilled cream with the mascarpone until light and airy, then add the combined sugar and matcha powder.

Spoon the cream into a piping bag fitted with a 1 cm (½ inch) star nozzle and pipe into the choux.

Replace the lids and dust with icing sugar.
