Strong Indian macha tea, much like chai, flavors are delicately combined with sweet sugar ice cream and earthy pureed almonds to generate light, airy, finger cakes. You should think of these cakes as an Indian inspired, raspberry infused version of a Twinkie. They lightly flavored sponge cake is filled with a vibrant red tart raspberry jam that soaks into the surrounding dough and infuses each bite with a bite of zest. Make these during the summer for a sweet and sour daytime surprise.
