This elegant version of a sunken pear cake is true to its flavors and hides the perfect surprise on the inside, making it incredibly moist and fluffy. This bread gets a powerful infusion of fresh ginger, maple syrup and white wine to make it even more festive.
Matcha is a powdered green tea that’s high in antioxidants; you’ll find it in most large natural grocery stores or Asian markets. If you can’t find matcha, steep 4 green tea bags in 1⁄2 cup boiling water for 3 minutes. Remove tea bags and let liquid cool, then add tea to smoothie; reduce rice milk by 1⁄2 cup.
