Matcha tea is a staple food in my kitchen. I mostly drink it but I love to bake with it too. This Japanese tea is full of subtle flavours and creaminess. It’s sweet but bitter at the same time and it also gives a fun colour to everything you bake. If that doesn’t make it for you, you should also know that matcha is an energising superfood because of the levels of caffeine and antioxidants. It will help protect your heart and liver while boosting your brain functions 🙂
It is a costly produce though as for as little as 4 oz (113g) of powder, you will pay $20 at Kroger for example. But you won’t use that much each time you cook. This is the one I use. It’s a lighter blend but it’s aromatic.
This cake is a creation I LOVE. It comes out of the even so moist, green and tasteful. It will go great with a cup of tea and fruits for a morning or afternoon snack.
I’ll let you discover the recipe below!
Prep time : 10 min – Baking time : 50 min
- 1 and 1/2 cup of oat flour (I mixed it a little with nut flour, that’s 150g)
- 1 tablespoon matcha green tea powder.
- 2 tbsp coconut oil melted
- 1/4 cup (50g) brown sugar
- 2 eggs, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup (125ml) almond milk
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- Preheat your oven at 325 F (165 C)
- In a bowl, mix your dry ingredients together (except the sugar). Mix it well until your matcha powder has coloured your flour
- In another bowl, melt your coconut oil, then add the eggs and mix well.
- Add the milk and sugar to your wet ingredients and mix everything together.
- Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and mix together until you get a liquid batter
- Oil a cake pan and pour the batter in
- Cook at 325 F for around 50 minutes or until your knife comes out clean if put in the cake
- Let it cool 5 min before taking out of your cake pan. Enjoy!
I make my own oat flour by putting 1 cup oat inside my blender and blending it! It’s super easy and convenient 🙂
