Raw Delicious Matcha Cake

It’s a brand new week, so let’s start off the right way with another awesome matcha recipe!

Cake is always the best dessert. You probably have childhood memories sharing special desserts with your family. Perhaps your mum or grandmother would bake you a birthday cake  and you look back on those memories fondly.

Unfortunately, maintaining our weight isn’t as easy today as it was when we were young. So sometimes having a  healthy dessert is a better idea, and that usually rules out cake.

But with the healthy touch of matcha, we can have our cake and eat it too!

For a guilt free dessert cake you can enjoy, we’d like to unveil Raw Vegan Matcha Cake Recipe by the awesome Janti Wignjoprnaoto, akaalterjiwo.

Janti is from Yogyakarta, Indonesia. She has a strong passion for veganism and pursuing a healthy lifestyle. She is a (raw) vegan chef and organic gardener with plenty of great recipes and pictures oninstagram.

Now, this cake recipe is vegan, raw, sugar-free, dairy-free, easy to make and super delicious. Let’s get stuck in!

Real matcha

Kenko is the best matcha I've found in Australia. Expensive, but genuine tea matcha unlike the cooking grade which is sold by some suppliers. Whisks up to a beautiful foam, taste and aroma excellent. Reminds me of matcha I bought in Kyoto.

A very nice gift pack

This Matcha tea taste really good. Best advise, only boil water to 80%.
Staff at Kenko are really helpful. A great alternative to coffee.

Best Matcha by far

I've tried several different brands of Matcha over the years and Kenko is by far the best, highest quality Matcha you can buy. I absolutely love it! Thankyou.

Electric Matcha whisk

This great little electric whisk froths up my morning matcha in no time. Easier than using a traditional hand held bamboo whisk. Comes with a compact storage case. Kenko orders are sent with love, wrapped in red tissue paper. Highly recommended.
