Mucho matcha desserts!

Matcha isn't just for drinking. It is also a very versatile ingredient for cooking and baking.

For instance, Blowfish Sushi to Die For (yes, that's the restaurant's name) serves the masterpiece "Zen Garden," at left. This is one of the more unusual matcha deserts out there.

A more down-to-earth confection — and one you can easily make yourself — is Kelly Keough's gluten-free Matcha Green Tea Cupcakes [scroll down the page a bit], shown on the right.

Finally, The Stir's Kim Conte makes us drool — well, I did anyway — with no less than five matcha desserts.

So the question isn't How can you use matcha in baking? but rather How can't you use matcha in baking?.

If I find out the answer to that, I will let you know. In the meantime, I have a lot of yummy treats to test.

Remember these?
