Buffalo Wings

Recipe from http://www.carlsbadcravings.com/buffalo-honey-hot-wings-traditional-buffalo-hot-wings-recipe/

  • Tried the honey hot wings version and it’s way too sweet and non-spicy for me despite adding a lot more hot wings sauce. Will go for the traditional hot wings next time.

Matcha Opera Cake

Matcha opera cake

Recipe from http://www.cannellevanille.com/courses/cakes/matcha-lemon-and-chocolate-opera-cake/

With changes:

  • I used a matcha syrup instead of lemon syrup
    • 100ml hot water, 20g sugar, 1 tsp matcha powder
  • For the chocolate glaze, I used 95g of bitter chocolate chips and 30g of oil. This was a bit too liquid so I might use less oil next time

Notes:

  • The chocolate taste was overpowering and the cake did not taste much like matcha despite me changing the lemon syrup to a matcha syrup
  • I will try a matcha buttercream and matcha white chocolate glaze next time
