Japanese Adzuki & Matcha Green Tea Cake
Adzuki beans or Red Beans are very popular as a dessert item in Japan.
Adzuki Bean desserts are not as sweet as our American desserts. We love sugar and do not consider this high protein treat as highly as it's health benefits deserve.
Use a mixture of Splenda and granulated sugar to bring it to a sweeter taste if you desire.

Here is some great advice from: LYNNETH7
*1 tsp of matcha is as beneficial as up to 6 tsp of brewed green tea leaves because you actually eat matcha powder instead of tossing it away after brewing.
*Get yourself a decent matcha powder. Check your local Asian supermarkets. Find a container sealed with a vacuum/nitrogen lock.
*Make sure it is grown in Uji for best quality.
Enjoy! Love, Vera
