Notes

Copyright The Foreign Fork. For educational or personal use only.
  • Butter: I like to use unsalted butter. Melt it completely, and then let it cool slightly before beginning.
  • Sugar: Use white sugar, also known as granulated sugar
  • Flour: Use all purpose flour. I have not tried this recipe using any other types of flours.
  • White Chocolate Chips: The measurement of white chocolate chips should be divided. Some will be microwaved and added to the batter. The rest will be added in chips at the end of the recipe.
  • Matcha Powder: You can usually buy this at organic or health food stores. If you can’t find it in a store, you can also buy it online. Make sure to get a good quality matcha powder.
  • To really amp up the flavor of these brownies, try using browned butter.
  • Using room temperature eggs means that they will blend more easily into the batter and will also help the brownies rise better!
  • Add green food coloring for a more vibrant green color.
  • You can melt the chocolate using a double boiler method if you prefer, but I find that microwaving the chocolate chips is easier and faster, with less clean up!
  • Sift your dry ingredients for ultimately smooth matcha brownies!
