Green Tea Chiffon Cake

The matcha tea aroma is rich and the cake comes out fluffy. Please give it a try.

Ingredients: Enough for a 17-cm cake mold

Cake flour
75 g
Matcha
10 g
Sugar
80 g
Egg yolk
3, large
Egg white
3, large
Water
60 ml
Vegetable oil
40 ml

Steps

1. Mix the cake flour and green tea powder together. Preheat the oven to 180℃.
2. Put egg whites in bowl and whip with an egg beater until stiff, add sugar a little at a time while whipping, until the meringue turns shiny and stiff peaks form.
3. In a separate bowl, add the egg yolks, vegetable oil, and water, and blend with a hand mixer without forming bubbles. Add the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until it becomes glutinous.
4. Add 1 dollop of meringue from Step 2 into the cake mixture from Step 3 and blend together with a mixer.
5. Add the mixture from Step 4 to remaining meringue, and fold together until the white streaks disappear.
6. Pour the mixture into a cake mold and bake for 30 minutes at 180℃. When it's ready, turn it upside down and let it cool. Remove from the mold after it thoroughly cools to room temperature.
7. I tried adding large dainagon adzuki beans to the mix.
