This melon bread is a green twist on the classic Japanese sweet bun. The Matcha Melon Bread is essentially melonpan, but incorporates a variety of antioxidant-packed and energy-boosting green tea. The recipe can be found on the Aiya website.
Described as a savory bread base with sweet cookie dough, the treat also features an intense matcha flavor. The sticky snack is also lightly dusted with sugar all over. Since matcha green tea can affect the fermentation process, the confection calls for more dry yeast than usual.
The dessert is an excellent example of how to cook with green tea. You could even enjoy it for breakfast in place of your standard pastries or even bagels.
