You’ve probably seen by now, I have a new obsession… Matcha Green Tea Powder. After making matcha tea lattes, I kept experimenting with this rich, bright green tea and came up with an easy and healthy recipe for Match Green Tea Pound Cake.
My friend Anne and I sipped on Matcha Lattes as we whipped up this narly green cake. It was an overcast day, perfect for enjoying a cup of tea and slice of cake. And green seemed to fit the mood just perfectly.
The result, a sweet, but not-too sweet, dense cake with a hint of green tea flavor. The exterior was perfectly crispy while the interior of the cake remained moist. We all LOVED the flavor, Josh couldn’t stop snagging a slice out of our kitchen, and I ate a slice or two for breakfast with berries and Greek yogurt for the next couple days. This recipe needed no perfecting. It came out perfect on the first try and now we just look forward to another loaf soon!
