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.







Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~  抹茶磅蛋糕  (adapted from 'here'.)
Ingredients
  • 150 gm plain flour
  • 1 Tbsp matcha/green tea
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 150 gm unsalted butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 130 gm icing sugar
  • Red bean paste for filling
  • Green tea powder or Icing sugar for dusting
Method
  1. Sift baking powder with green tea powder and plain flour, set aside.
  2. Beat butter with icing sugar till creamy.
  3. Add in eggs one at a time till well incorporated.
  4. Fold in flour in 2 portions.  Mix well.
  5. Pour half batter into a lined 23 x 13 cm loaf pan and distribute the red bean paste in strips, horizontally.  (Since I used a Pyrex dish, I just greased the dish and dusted with some flour).
  6. Top up with remaining batter and smooth the top with a rubber spatula.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for 45 mins.  till golden brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.  Let cake cool in pan for about 5 mins. before unmoulding and letting the cake cool on a wire rack.
  8. Dust with some green tea powder or icing sugar before slicing.
