Easy Matcha Green Tea Pound Cake with Pancake Mix and Okara

Don't you get hungry when you're pregnant? I made this pound cake more filling by adding okara (soy pulp). It's really satisfying.

Ingredients: 8 x 17 x 6 cm loaf pan

✿ฺ Pancake mix
150 g
✿ฺ Fresh okara
50 g
✿ฺ Matcha
2 teaspoons
Milk
100 ml (adjust the amount based on how dry the okara is)
Egg
1
Granulated sugar
1 tablespoon plus

Steps

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F).
2. Add all dry ingredients marked with a ✿ฺ into a bowl. Mix well with a whisk.
3. Add milk, eggs, and granulated sugar into the bowl from Step 2 and combine well.
4. Pour into the loaf pan and bake for 20 to 30 minutes. Please adjust the cooking time based on your oven.
5. Remove from pan and set aside to cool. When it's cool, cover with plastic wrap to keep fresh.
6. Here's a strawberry version. Blend 5 strawberries and 50 to 80 ml of milk in a food processor.

Story Behind this Recipe
