Found this when searching for a dessert to complete my Tai meal. Hope it turns out well! Can find the tea powder at health food or Japanese import stores

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease an angel food cake pan (or a 9-inch cake pan).
  3. Crack eggs into 2 separate mixing bowls, with the egg whites in one bowl and the yolks in another.
  4. Beat the egg whites until stiff, and set aside.
  5. Add the salt and sugar to the yolks and stir well until smooth.
  6. Add the coconut milk, oil, and vanilla to the yolks, and beat until mixed in
  7. In a 3rd bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and green tea powder. Now add (or sift) this into the yolk mixture. Stir well or beat to incorporate.
  8. Now fold in the egg whites, stirring and mixing by hand and just until egg whites have dissolved into the batter (do not over mix).
  9. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and place in the oven for 25 to 35 minutes (depending on your oven). Check cake after 25 minutes by inserting a fork into the center of the cake. If it comes out clean, it's done. (Note: the center should form a peak - if it is concave, your cake isn't nearly finished).
  10. While cake is cooling in the pan, toast the coconut. Place coconut in a dry frying pan (no oil) over medium heat. "Dry fry" for 1 minute, stirring constantly - or until coconut turns light golden brown.
  11. Decorate the cake with a sifting of the icing sugar, and add a sprinkling of toasted coconut on top. Serve warm or at room temperature.
