Green Tea Bread
After the not-s0-successful attempt at this bread, I calculated the liquid ratio of this recipe versus the tried-and-tasted ones which I found the ratio here is slightly higher. Just very slightly. With this suspicion, I try it out again with reduction of 10% liquid.
Instead of using raisin, I used the green tea powder which I bought awhile back. I added the pumpkin seeds toppings for the good fats and oil.
Results? As you can see, the bread was even coarser than the last one! See the large
air pockets! And I am sooo mad that I just wasted my precious matcha :-(
OK, I have overacted. To be fair, this bread is not is not garbage quality... it is soft enough for a spartanic breakfast. The problem is I expected a more refined bread like this or this.
My next step? Use a red marker and cross out this recipe in my thick folder. Bye bye!
