1/3 cup milk
4 1/2 tbsp butter
8-in cake pan

For the cream
2 cup heavy cream
2 tsp Mizuba matcha powder

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a small bowl, add butter and microwave 15 seconds or melt over the stove until completed. Add matcha powder and mix well. Then add your milk and whisk to mix well. Set aside.
