Add heavy cream in a small saucepan and heat up over medium heat. Cook for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly. Turn the heat to low and then add the chocolate. Mix until completely incorporated.
Add egg and egg yolk. Whisk the mixture for 1-2 minutes and then add matcha green tea powder, butter, and flour. Continue to cook for a couple of minutes more. Remove the mixture from the heat and set aside.
Line a small baking pan with parchment paper and add adzuki beans. Flatten the beans as evenly as possible to create a nice flat layer. Pour the matcha mixture over the beans and set aside.
Make a water bath in a medium baking pan and place the terrine in it.
Bake for about 30-35 minutes at 300 degrees F.
When done, remove from the oven and cool to a room temperature. Refrigerate for about an hour before serving. Optionally, decorate with some more matcha and serve.
A terrine is a classic French pate made with many different ingredients, baked until completely set, and then served cold.
A couple of weeks ago, I have tried this fantastic terrine recipe that includes a refreshing and my personal favorite) matcha green tea powder, heavy cream, and mashed adzuki beans for a lovely balance of flavors. Eggs will hold the mixture together while the white chocolate will provide the right amount of creaminess and chocolate flavor you expect in a good dessert.
The recipe is relatively easy to make and takes about 15 minutes of total preparation time. Baking, on the other hand, does require a nice water bath for the best results – the terrine should be completely set but tender and creamy when chilled.
Optionally, sprinkle with some more matcha powder, cocoa powder, or even fresh berries. Serve this elegant terrine and impress your loved ones. Enjoy!
