Easy and Authentic Using Pancake Mix! Matcha Pound Cake

Easy and Authentic Using Pancake Mix! Matcha Pound Cake

This cake is well flavored with matcha. This is made with care.

Ingredients: 1 17-cm pound cake mold

◎ Japanese Pancake mix
100 g
◎ Matcha
1 tablespoon
100 g
80 g
2 tablespoons


1. Make sure to bring the butter and sugar to room temperature. Mix the ◎ ingredients together. Pre-heat the oven to 170 °C.
2. Put the butter in a bowl. Whisk until smooth and fluffy.
3. Add the sugar in 2 batches. Whisk well with each addition, until the mixture is white and fluffy.
4. Add the beaten eggs in about 4 batches, whisking well between each addition. Add the milk and mix well.
5. Add the ◎ ingredients using a rubber spatula, using a cut and fold motion. The batter should become glossy.
6. Pour the batter into the mold lined with a parchment paper, and drop it to the counter 2 or 3 times to remove the air. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 40 to 50 minutes.
7. When a bamboo skewer stuck into the middle comes out clean, it's done! Take the cake out of the mold and cool on a cake rack.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this for my matcha-loving friend for her birthday, since I had some pancake mix.
