Chocolate Matcha Bundt Cake

From: www.bakerella.com

Matcha is what makes the marbled part of this bundt cake green. Matcha is a fine powdered green tea used in Japanese tea ceremonies or, in this case used to help me make an amazing cake. The color is very beautiful and I had never seen anything like it in a cake.

Choclate Matcha Bundt CakeServes 8-10

Chocolate Mixture Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt

Matcha Mixture Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2-3 tbsp. matcha powder
  • 1 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt

Wet Ingredients Ingredients

  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ¾ cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Cooking Instructions

  1. First, preheat the oven to 325° and grease a 10-cup Bundt Pan. After greasing with Crisco, dust it with cocoa. Using cocoa instead of flour helps to keep white specks from showing up on chocolate cakes when you remove them from the pan.
  2. Next, with a wire whisk, mix all of the dry ingredients for the chocolate mixture in a small bowl and set aside. In another small bowl, do the same for the matcha mix.
  3. Using a mixer, cream the butter and suger. Add the eggs, milk, and vanilla and mix until thoroughly combined.
  4. Divide the creamed mixture evenly into two separate bowls. Slowly add the chocolate mixture to one half of the creamed mixture and mix thoroughly. Add the matcha mixture to the other half of the creamed mixture and mix thoroughly
  5. Drop alternating spoonfuls of each mixture into the bundt pan until it's about ¾ full and bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes

Cooking Notes

Matcha sweet tea can, at times, be difficult to find. It is most likely to be spotted at health food stores such as Whole Foods or Outpost.
