Step 1

Mix the eggs with the yolks, sugar (125 gr), powder matcha tea and salt at speed 4 in the stand mixer. Whisk until the mixture is foamy and fluffy. Then, pour the mixture into a large bowl.
Using a rubber spatula, add the beaten egg whites to the previous mixture, add flour until the texture is smooth and swollen.

Step 2

Spread the matcha mixture on a sheet of baking paper or silicon mat (silpat), 1-cm high, using spatula. Bake at 220° in fan assisted mode for about 6-7 minutes. Once baked, sprinkle some caster sugar over the surface and place another sheet of baking paper on top and turn over, the sugar will allow the dough to remain moist until used.
