Matcha Green Tea Cake Recipe with Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea

I am finally back after taking last week off for Christmas. Talking about Christmas, how was your celebration? Did you get anything on your wish list? Hubby dearest got me a Kate Spade iPhone 6 case and I was extremely happy! That has been on my wish list for the longest time so yippee! He also got me a whole set of Thierry Mugler Angel, my all time favourite perfume and a jewellery box so I can finally store my accessories in a proper place...what can I say, he knows me well. And I had the best and most enjoyable traditional Christmas dinner. I think I ate myself into a food coma.

And yes, today I am sharing another food post. If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice that I have some sort of passion for food. Baking, cooking and unfortunately eating, you name it, I love it. So when I saw the opportunity to try Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea*, I happily jumped on it.

I've only tried matcha green tea once and to be honest, I wasn't the biggest fan of the taste. Unlike the usual green tea, matcha is more bitter and the taste is also stronger. So why be an idiot and try this? Well, I read that it's great for metabolism boost and I am instantly sold. Let's face it, I'm not getting any younger and my metabolism rate is slowing down, wayyy down. And after the Christmas feast that I had, I need all the help that I can get.

Kiss Me Organics Matcha Green Tea

Kiss Me Organics is supposed to send some recipes with this matcha green tea however, I received none so I had to sit down and come up with my own recipe. I'm not too pleased about this because it would have been very helpful to have some sort of guide on the product but apart from that little hiccup I actually like this matcha green tea. And of course, I had a great time baking and eating!

Matcha Green Tea Cake

Ingredients:
1 cup margarine
1 cup sugar

2 cups flour
2 tablespoons green tea powder
1/8 tsp baking powder

4 extra large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract


Baking method:
1. Preheat oven to 180 Celsius.
2. Grease a cake pan.
3. Sift the flour, baking powder and green tea powder.
4. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. 
5. Add the flour mixture 1/4 cup at a time.
6. Add the eggs one by one.
7. Stir in vanilla extract.
8. Mix well until mixture is completely smooth. Batter will be very thick, almost dough like.
9. Pour batter into pan and bake for about 35 minutes.

NOTE: I had no cake pan so I had to bake it in a bread pan. DO NOT follow my footstep, use a proper cake pan please.



I've also used 1/2 a teaspoon in my coffee in the morning but I didn't enjoy it as much. The powder never fully dilutes regardless how long I stirred so it wasn't pleasant drinking it. That being said, the biggest difference that I noticed is..get ready to be grossed out...good bowel movement. After starting to incorporate this into my morning coffee, my bowel movement has been like a clock work, every morning without fail. Not joking, not kidding, I'm really impressed. Will I continue adding this into my coffee? Absolutely! It's not pleasant to drink but I'm willing to make that little sacrifice.

If you are a fan of green tea or looking for an healthy alternative to add into your daily routine then this is a great option. This is not the cheapest available matcha green tea but it has definitely done my digestive system some good.
