Matcha and White Chocolate Cake


  • 3 eggs
  • butter (the same weight as the eggs)
  • caster sugar (the same weight as the eggs)
  • plain all-purpose flour (the same weight as the eggs)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon matcha (green tea powder)
  • 70g white chocolate chips


Step 1
Preheat the oven to 170ΒΊC, and butter and flour a 19 x 19 x 8 cm loaf tin. Weight the eggs, then weight out the same amount of butter, sugar and flour (the weight of the eggs I used was about 180 g, but I have used a bit less butter and sugar, about 100 g).
Step 2
With an electric mixer, beat the sugar and butter together until light and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing each one in well before adding the next.
Step 3
Sift in the flour, baking powder and matcha. Combine with a spatula. Stir through the white chocolate chips, then pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 40 minutes. The cake is ready when a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
