Raw, Vegan Matcha Green Tea Cake Recipe

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 - a Matcha Smoothie cake and a Raw 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.

  • 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.
