I had to try this chocolate fondant with green tea! This recipe comes from again Ma petite cuisine Japonaise from Marabout. My boyfriend and I went to Japan 2 years ago and just fell in love with the culture and food.
Here is the recipe for Fondant Matcha & Chocolate
25 g of flour
10 g of matcha (green tea powder)
125 g of butter
50 g of hazelnut powder (I used coco powder, however the fondants weren't green like in the picture)
40 g of brown sugar
A pinch of salt
12 squares of dark chocolate
Preheat oven to 355 F.
In a bowl, sift the flour, matcha, and salt.
Melt the butter. In a second bowl, beat eggs and sugar with a whisk. Add melted butter, ground hazelnuts and flour to the matcha mixture.
Butter and flour 6 small cake pan and pour half the mixture. Place 2 squares of chocolate into each one and cover with the rest of the preparation. Bake in the oven for 7 to 8 minutes. Serve warm for the chocolate squares are melted.
