Finally! It seems like a whole life time ago but can you believe it’s only been 10 days since our crazy Matcha Madness came to a close? Well, technically it came to a close but secretly we all know know we’ll never ever be over our matcha love affair!

Don’t look at me like I’m crazy because I ain’t the only one obsessed with a certain green powder. Check out the awesome submissions I received and here, in all their glory, I’m sharing with you 38 ~ that’s right, THIRTY-EIGHT ~ original, beautiful and utterly delicious matcha recipes!

Each and every recipe is brilliant in its own right, from a fabulous matcha dacquoise cake to the crazy creative savouries from Recipe Taster and these adorable matcha cake sushi rolls!

But tough as it was, the guys at teapigs and I each had to pick a winner because in case you forgot, winners from this little do here each receives a £25 tin of matcha powder!

So. Without further ado… *drum roll please*

Green tea ice cream cake by Bertha of Gourmet Baking because guys, ice cream. AND MATCHA. and absolutely stunning.

Matcha and white chocolate panna cotta by Quinn of Quinn’s Baking Diary because “matcha and white chocolate are a winning combination and the lavender flower and vanilla is a nice touch.”

And although it pains me that I can’t give out 38 cans of matcha powder, I totally love all of the recipes which were sent in and want to thank everyone for the effort and support and mainly, to make me not feel like the only statutory wacko for being so in love with matcha.

You Guys Rock.

    I’m blown away with all the recipes you have here. It puts our recipe list to shame!

    In fact, I’m so impressed, I’m sending you a complimentary 80g tin of Vitalife matcha so you can keep on making these amazing treats.

    Just a quick note for everyone using matcha in their cooking/baking, we’re introducing a culinary grade matcha to our range early in the New Year specifically for this purpose. Keep an eye out for it!

  33. Amazing recipes, really impressed with the pictures too! I will definitely give a go to the winner, looks absolutely amazing! Great blog, thaks for sharing!
