Double Matcha Mousse Cake filled with Adzuki beans. The fluffy matcha sponge cake layers with matcha creamy mousse

Today we have an awesome new matcha dessert that will make you fall head over heels.

It’s a pretty simple recipe, at least easier than last week’s recipe, Matcha Nettle Moss Cake! This new recipe is forMatcha Adzuki Mousse Cake and was created by the delightful Jenny Yau aka @jennywcyau.

Jenny is a passionate baker who started her home-based bakery last year. At first, she just made cakes for family and friends, specializing in super light fluffy sponge cakes and mousses with different flavors.

Then Jenny experimented in making macarons for her sister-in-law to sell in her Japanese restaurant. Due to the success of these projects, Jenny now has her own blog featuring an extensive portfolio of cakes and macarons. Here where you can check out her amazing creations:

This Double Matcha Mousse Cake is a nice combination of fluffy light matcha cake with a smooth and creamy matcha mousse. The double green tea flavor will certainly satisfy any matcha cravings you might have. The adzuki beans in the filling also pairs well with the matcha tea.

Lovely green color powder

First matcha purchase!

So far I have made tea cookies, raw nut/fruit balls, smoothies, and plain matcha with cashew milk and it's all good to me! Don't have much to compare it to but a chain coffee shop latte experience years ago. I learned the amazing benefits that make the cost of matcha well worth the price.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
