The Perfect Harmony of Flavors: Matcha and White Chocolate
Matcha, known for its vibrant green color and earthy notes, has been cherished for centuries in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies. White chocolate, with its creamy texture and sweet taste, makes for a perfect partner to balance the matcha’s complexity. When these flavors merge in a brownie, it’s a delightful fusion that will captivate your senses.
Cannabis-Infused Goodness: The Right Balance
Crafting these brownies requires a bit of culinary finesse, especially in ensuring the correct balance of flavors and the desired effects of cannabis. To start, you’ll need to infuse the butter with cannabis, ensuring an even distribution of cannabinoids. This infused butter is then used in place of regular butter in your brownie recipe.
Recipe: Cannabis-Infused Matcha White Chocolate Brownies
Here’s a simple recipe to embark on your journey into the world of Cannabis-Infused Matcha White Chocolate Brownies:
- 1/2 cup regular butter (browned)
- 1/2 cup cannabis-infused butter (browned)
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp ceremonial grade matcha powder
- 1 cup monkfruit
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp sea salt flakes (optional)
- Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper. Set it aside for later.
- Brown the Butter: In a saucepan over high heat, melt the regular butter and cannabis-infused butter. Lower the heat to low once melted. Continue heating the butter until small brown bits appear. This process infuses your butter with a rich, nutty flavor. Remove from the stove and let it cool slightly.
- Combine Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, sift together the ceremonial-grade matcha powder, gluten-free all-purpose flour, and sea salt flakes (if using). Thus, sifting ensures your dry ingredients are well mixed and free of lumps.
- Mix Wet Ingredients: In another bowl, combine monkfruit, coconut sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract with the browned butter. Whisk these wet ingredients until thoroughly combined. You can also use an electric whisk for efficiency.
- Blend Wet and Dry Ingredients: Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the sifted dry ingredients. Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ones, creating a smooth batter with a vivid green hue.
- Add White Chocolate Chips: Once the wet and dry ingredients are well combined, fold in the white chocolate chips. These chips will provide sweetness throughout the brownies.
- Baking Time: Pour the batter into your prepared baking pan and add a few more white chocolate chips on top to make the brownies extra indulgent. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
- Salted Finish: Remove the brownies from the oven and gently tap the pan on the counter to remove air bubbles. Sprinkle flaky sea salt over the top of the brownies for a delightful contrast of flavors. Return the brownies to the oven for another 10 minutes.
- Cool and Serve: Allow the brownies to cool in the pan for approximately 20 minutes before cutting them into squares.
In conclusion, These brownies aren’t just a culinary experiment; they’re an opportunity to embark on a journey of flavors and effects. Whether you’re an experienced cannabis enthusiast or a newcomer, these treats promise a memorable and unique experience.
