Making Mugwort Cake | Unique But Delicious

Wormwood is a culinary ingredient, with a strong bitter taste and aroma, so it seems to be very popular with everyone. It seems that as many fans as there are people who hate it. A lot of people like the Chocolate Mugwort Injeolmi Gateau that I posted a long time ago. I also made it with cake once. You’ll be able to enjoy it with a more colorful texture by switching to the crunchy crumbs.
