Matcha Mushipan 抹茶蒸しパン

Steamed Japanese matcha cake- soft and moist, packed with matcha goodness! And I did I mention no oil and butter too? 

If you have ever eaten fatt gou (Chinese 发糕), the texture of this cake is quite similar to that, except without the signature split open top and Gula Melaka. Both cakes are steamed, giving it lots of moisture and cakey texture without adding any fat into the batter!

So if you want to have your cake and eat it too, Mushipan is the way to go! I mean with matcha, what's not to love? :) 

1 week + 3 more days of burden to go. I really don't know how this camp is going to turn out- I've done my best for my proposal planning, and I've tried to help out in my role in whatever ways possible. I don't know if that's enough, but I hope it is. It all comes down to the 4 days in camp and executing the camp with my teammates. As much as doubt my ability to lead others well, I just hope everything turns out okay. And no matter what the outcome is, as long as I think I've tried my best and done what I could, nothing else matters anymore.
