I found this recipe a few years ago, but can't remember where. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I thought it sounded interesting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Line 2 mini loaf pans or 1 standard loaf pan with parchment paper and/or coating it with non-stick spray.
  3. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. In a large bowl, combine eggs and sugar and mix until well incorporated; add the flour mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Add vanilla and yogurt and mix well; gradually add the melted butter and continue to blend until the cake batter is smooth.
  6. In a separate bowl, mix the powdered green tea and about a teaspoon of lukewarm water into a paste; if desired, add a tablespoon of cream and continue mixing this into a paste.
  7. Add about 1/4 to 1/3 of the cake batter to the green tea mixture; blend until it is a solid green color.
  8. Add the green tea batter to the plain batter with a rubber spatula; make 1 or 2 large swirls with the rubber spatula, being careful not to over-do it.
  9. Pour the batter into the prepared pan (s), and bake for about 40 minutes; cake will be done when it is slightly springy in the middle.
  10. Note: The cake is best if you let it rest 1-2 days in the fridge; wrap tightly with saran wrap and aluminum foil and let the flavors develop.

I don't know why the previous two user's cake turned doughy, mine turned excellent, love it! definitely going to use this recipe all the time. The cake is moist, soft, and yummy. I use thick sour greek yoghurt and milk instead of water. And i also mix the butter with sugar instead of melting it.

Like the other review the cake came out ok the first day but got doughy later on. I tried it again in a bundt pan and double the recipe using cake flour and less butter. came out wonderfully!

It was great one the first day, but the leftovers after a day become doughy.
