Recipe | Green Tea Marble Cake with a White Chocolate Glaze


I'm not a massive lover of green tea, I find it super bitter, but I had a bag of matcha powder just sitting doing nothing so I decided to make a Green Tea Marble cake with a White Chocolate Glaze. Even if you don't like green tea, it's really delicious! 

Ingredients - 

For the cake - 

180g sugar
160ml oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
245g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
200ml buttermilk
4 tsp matcha powder

For the glaze - 

85g sugar
30g butter
40ml double cream
30g icing sugar
50g white chocolate

Method - 

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 900g loaf tin and line with parchment paper. 

2. Combine the sugar, oil and vanilla extract in a large bowl and beat for 3-5 minutes. 

3. Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt and mix well until combined. 

4. Add the eggs and buttermilk and mix thoroughly. Pour one third of the mixture into a bowl and set aside. 

5. Beat the matcha powder into the remaining two thirds of the batter and pour into the prepared loaf tin. 

6. Add the batter that was set aside, pouring in a circular motion then swirl the batter using a skewer. 

7. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before adding the glaze. 

8. To make the glaze, combine sugar, butter, chocolate and double cream in a medium saucepan over a medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Allow to boil for 1 minute then turn down to low, allow to simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat and whisk on icing sugar. Allow to cool for 3 minutes then spoon over the loaf while it's still warm. Sprinkle a little matcha powder down the middle of the loaf.
