  1. This looks like something I should try! I always have lots of leftover bananas which I do not know what to do with. Must be superdelicious with so much banana in it!

    You can add a topping of icing sugar and lime juice, or just dust with some icing sugar.

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
