Matcha green tea cake

Cakes!! Who does not love cakes? As we all know, there are many recipes for making cakes in several ways. But have you ever heard about Matcha Green Tea Cake?

Matcha green tea adds an earthy flavour to the matcha pound cake. You will get surprised at how full of flavour a matcha green tea cake can be, and at the same time, it is not too sweet.

You must use good quality matcha to make a good matcha cake. If you want to make green tea cake, just replace some cake flour with matcha in any cake recipe you like.



But remember that wheat flour and matcha are two entirely different ingredients. In comparison with flour, matcha tea absorbs more water and less fat. If the recipe is not altered, the cake will not be more fluffy and less oily.

And through the article, we will describe some easy-to-follow recipes so that you can get a fluffy matcha green tea cake every time.

Why Use Matcha Powder For Baking A Cake?

Brings About Flavour

Baking cakes with matcha adds a green tea flavour to it. An earthy note to this flavour goes well with vanilla, ginger, chocolate, and lemon-flavoured baked foods.

Adds Natural Colour

Matcha tea will naturally add a green colour to your cakes and cookies, frostings, and glazes. Matcha tea is very concentrated, so a tiny amount goes a long way.

Nutritional Content

It has been scientifically demonstrated that matcha tea has high antioxidant levels since it contains more chlorophyll than other teas. However, it is unclear whether these antioxidants survive high-temperature baking.

To Try Something New

A simple recipe can be given new life when it is reinvented. You can easily add matcha powder to your dry ingredients to create something new and different with your homemade baked goods.

Instruction To Make The Cake

Combine the egg yolk with half of the sugar, add honey and mix for about 10 minutes. Add the egg white and the remainder of the sugar and whisk until soft peaks form. Carefully fold in both the egg white and the egg yolk mixtures. Add the flour, matcha, and butter and stir until fully dissolved.

Bake the cake at 175 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool the cake and cut it into three pieces. Spread matcha cream between each slice, and cover the whole cake. Using whipped cream and fresh fruits, decorate the cake.

Some Tips & Tricks

These are some simple tips to make the process a bit easier.

  • Immediately after being taken out of the fridge, separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. When the eggs have warmed up, this is much harder to do.
  • Before adding the egg whites to your mixer, give it a quick wipe with lemon juice or vinegar to remove any grease.
  • To mix smoothly, all the ingredients should be kept at room temperature, especially the butter, egg yolks, and milk.
  • Cake batter should not be overmixed, as this will cause the cake to deflate.
  • Before baking, tap the cake pan to release any trapped air bubbles, resulting in a cake with a uniform texture.


Making matcha green tea cake is very simple. Almost as simple as making any other cake. If you go through the instructions, you will notice that they are similar to any cake baking method.

But, you must keep the heat to bake the cake in control. Too much heat, and you may lose the green texture you intend to have.

Please let us know what you think of this guide. Good Luck.


For baking, what kind of matcha powder do you use?

Matcha powder of ceremonial grade can be expensive, but it is the most popular ingredient for baking. Since the powder has such a vibrant green colour, its colour still shows up in baked goods after baking.

How come my matcha cake is brown?

Heat destroys matcha. Excessive baking causes matcha to turn brown. Matcha will turn brown if the oven temperature is set too high.
