Anita’s Matcha Lava Cakes recipe kind of happened by mistake. She was making a green tea cheesecake but whisked it too much so it became a green tea lava cake. What a happy accident!
Whether it’s done in a cheesecake or a lava cake style, this recipe is still delicious with the perfect blend of Oreos and matcha green tea. The rich, smooth matcha cream filling is complemented by the crunchy Oreo crust and the fresh strawberry chocolate topping.
It’s also extremely easy and quick to make; a perfect loved up dessert. Let’s begin!
