Raw, Vegan Matcha Green Tea Cake Recipe

April 15, 2014 2 min read

Now I just realised in all this time making matcha recipes I've never made a matcha green tea cake. I've made matcha smoothies, green tea ice cream, matcha lattes but no cake!

So when I discovered Chris' Matcha cake recipes I decided it was about time to make one. This recipe is a combination of two recipes - aMatcha Smoothie cake and aRaw Matcha Coconut Cake. With my own spin including avocado and mixed berries to garnish. It is raw, vegan, gluten free and completely delicious.

This recipe makes 2 Small Matcha Cakes or 1 Large Cake

Making the base of a raw matcha cake

  • Set aside and wash your blender as you will need for the filling
  • Throw all filling ingredients into a blender and blend create your mixture. It should be like a thick smoothie at this stage.Taste for flavour, if it needs some more sweetness you can add some agave or honey to suit your tastes.
  • Pour in your filling mixture until the top of the tins - shake the cake tins gently to spread it out evenly and create a flat top of the cake.

Filling cake tine for green tea matcha cake recipe

  • Put in the freezer for 1-2 hours - depending on thickness of your cakes. It should be chilled and become firm, but not completely frozen. I left one in overnight and it was rock hard the next day.
  • Remove from cake tins and serve immediately.

After being in the freezer for about an hour - The outside is firm while the centre was still gooey. I ate it like this.
