Matcha recipes: Fried Matcha Cheese Bread: Our Fried Matcha Cheese Bread is easy and fun to make. You can even do any shape/size you like. When you bite into one, the beautiful light Matcha cream cheese filling greets you as a fresh and welcome surprise

[Makes 8]

[Ingredients]

Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha........... 1 tbsp
Cream Cheese.................................. 3.5 oz
Dried Fruit......................................... 1 oz
Thinly Sliced Bread...........................  8 pcs
Oil (for frying)
Granulated Sugar


 

Tip:  Slightly moistening the bread makes it easy to shape!
Note: While this recipe suggests two different ways of forming the bread, you can try any shape you like!

 [Directions]

  1. Set the cream cheese out to soften.  Chop up the dried fruit.
  2. Sift the Matcha into the softened cream cheese and mix.
  3. Mix the dried fruit into the Matcha and cream cheese.
  4. For maki sushi style preparation, place each piece of bread on some plastic wrap or, if you have it, a sushi mat.  Spread some of the cream cheese mixture in the center of the bread and then tightly roll it.
  5. For cheese puff style preparation, spread a thin layer of the cream cheese mixture all over one side of each slice and then roll it into a ball, tucking the spread side to the inside.
  6. Heat the oil (350 degree oil will yield the best results) and carefully place the bread into it, frying until it turns golden brown.
  7. Roll in granulated sugar to coat while still hot.
