Catherine Zhang: Layered Matcha Oreo Brownies

by Denielle B

Catherine Zhang, winner of Zumbo’s Just Desserts Season 2, is one of my favorite bakers. I love how she’s able to bring interesting flavor combinations, especially with an Asian twist. Her brownie recipe is very unique in pairing matcha and Oreos together. These brownies are delicious!

I remember watching her on the show and thinking to myself, “Man, she’s who I wanted to be when I was her age!” I knew from that moment that even if she ends up not winning, that I will be following her social media accounts and trying her recipes. Well, she won that season!

This particular recipe piqued my interest because:

  1. Matcha
  2. Chocolate
  3. Oreos

I mean, what more can you ask for? This is super indulgent, but surprisingly not as rich as I thought it would be. The slight bitterness of the matcha worked really well with the chocolate and Oreos. I didn’t change anything in the recipe except for using Oreo chunks instead of whole Oreos on the top layer. This is only because I only had Double Stuf Oreos, and it would have been a little too sweet if I used whole ones.

If you’re curious to try her recipe for yourself, follow the link below!

What are recipe shoutouts?

These are recipes I’ve tried from other folks that I’ve liked. It’s not only a way for me to support other food bloggers, but also another way to showcase my food photography. I don’t own the recipes in this section, but I do own the photos.
