Matcha Tea Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Dina Cohen

I like the moist texture of this cake and it is pretty easy to make. I buy the green tea powder (matcha) in Asian groceries because it's way cheaper than the high quality matcha sold in tea stores and designed for the tea ceremony.

I made this into muffins rather than a cake and although they were Ok it would work much better as one large cake. I found it easy to put together and they baked with no problems. I found the flavor to be very mild but this could have been my green tea rather than the recipe. I nice little cake that would make an unusual picnic or potluck ingredient
