Matcha Hot Cross Bao With Red Bean Paste Fillings

This week is Holy Week. And yesterday was Good Friday for us.  I made some Matcha Bao with Red Bean Paste filling . I made the filling sugarless and instead added salt to the red bean paste for a change. It tasted good with the matcha flavoured Bao skin.  Instead of making Hot Cross Buns , I made Hot Cross Matcha Baos. Feeling good knowing that Good Friday means now we have excess to God thru Jesus who died on the cross for us. I love Pastor Glenn, the pastor of Pathway Baptist Church, Melbourne. He never minces his word. He is the only Pastor I know thus far that fear God and not man. My blessings to have met him and his wife when they visited Malaysia last year. It is a privilege to know this great servant of God. A pastor with pastoral heart. May God bless him and his wife as they continue to serve God. I digress a bit here. I will take this opportunity to introduce him to my readers and May you too be blessed listening to his sermons .
