    Akikobay's Note:

    I've been carrying this recipe around for so long that I have no idea where I found it. Note: Matcha is specially processed powdered green tea. You cannot substitute regular green tea that has been ground or crushed.

      These cakes come out very light, though at 55 minutes, mine were already slightly overdone and drier. They have very subtle green tea flavor and are a lovely shade of green. I remedied the dryness by making a syrup of coconut milk, sugar and vanilla and poured it over the cakes after poking them full of holes. It was really, really good after the glaze had set.
