- All-purpose flour: 20g
Preparation: Wash limes and extract the juice. Cut the cream cheese into small pieces.
Warm the Milk: Heat the milk until it's lukewarm, avoiding boiling. This can be done using a microwave or slowly on the stovetop.
Mix the Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese and granulated sugar, stirring until smooth. Add the eggs and continue to mix.

Add Flour and Matcha Powder: Sift the flour and matcha powder into the mixture, stirring until smooth and free of lumps.
Add Lime Juice: Slowly incorporate the lime juice into the mixture, stirring well. Be cautious not to add too much, preventing excessive acidity.
