Matcha Lava Cake – Recipe

A Sake Evening at Sakagura

Yesterday evening London sake bar Sakagura held a talk presented by the Museum of Sake's Natsuki Kikuya, with five different types of sake to taste and some small eats to pair with them.

Coconut pudding, rum and pineapples. Sounds like summer, right? I made this to celebrate longer days, the arrival of spring and the promise of summer. Ironically it's pouring with rain as I write.

So I've been working on my cake-steaming technique to prepare.
