Matcha Red Bean Bread Loaf~抹茶红豆土司

~ Slice, slice... Matcha Red Bean sandwich loaf ~ Matcha and red bean is a very good combination. The compliment  each other. I love the taste and the flavour of Matcha.  'Matcha'  means finely-milled or fine powder green tea. It is not only for drinking. Matcha also can be use to flavour and dye food such as mochi, soba noodles, ice cream and here I am using Matcha for making bread.  This Matcha Red Bean sandwich loaf is soft and nice. This recipe source is from ' 孟老师 100 types of bread book' The original recipe is three tone sandwich bread loaf. I change it to Matcha Red Bean sandwich loaf. Since this month is Saint Patrick Challenge by Very Good Recipes ,  it is why I change it to green by adding Matcha (green tea).  Hope you will enjoy this! ~ Matcha Red Bean sandwich loaf.
