Rich Oil-free Matcha Chocolate Cake Made with Powdered Green Tea

If you've bought a food mill but can't use it well yet, this recipe is for you. Try making this rich, oil-free matcha chocolate cake using green tea.

Ingredients: 1 pound cake tin

Silken tofu
200 g
100 g
White chocolate
90 g
1 tablespoon
Green tea leaves
25 g
Cake flour
30 g
10 g
1/2 teaspoon


1. Wrap the tofu in a paper towel, place it in a heatproof bowl, and microwave for 1 minute!
2. Mill the green tea to make a fine powder. Use a tea strainer to remove the course bits. (I recommend milling for 1 minute, straining, then milling for 1 more minute.)
3. Lightly drain the tofu. Put it in a bowl with the sugar and mix it until smooth.
4. Add the egg and mix until smooth.
5. Finely crush the white chocolate, place it in a heatproof bowl, pour the milk over it, and microwave for 1 minute.
6. After adding the egg to the bowl in Step 3, add the remaining ingredients one at a time, beating with a whisk after each addition until smooth.
7. Pour the batter into the tin and bake for 40 minutes at 180℃. When a skewer poked through the middle comes out clean, it's done!
8. Let it cool down, then wrap in plastic wrap, chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours, and it's ready!

Story Behind this Recipe

I bought a food mill, and wanted to try making green tea leaves into a powder. The result wasn't great for using in drinks such as matcha au lait, so I tried using the powder to make a cake!
