Matcha Cake

Cake can be made one day before.

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Cut the parchment paper to cover the side of the tin (cut wider than the tin, sticking out 1-2 cm above the top), oil the paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sugar, flour and sift in the Matcha.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, melt butter with water and oil; bring to boil. Remove from heat and pour over the dry ingredients; mix well. Add egg, buttermilk, baking soda, and vanilla extract; blend thoroughly.
  4. Pour the mix into a 10-inch x 15-inch cake pan. Bake approximately 10 minutes or until tester/toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

Matcha Mousse

  1. In a medium-size saucepan, melt white chocolate and butter together. Sift in Matcha powder.
  2. Add egg yolk to the melted chocolate, and immediately beat until creamy; remove from heat and let it cool.
  3. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until it turns into a firm foam. In another bowl, beat whipped cream until stiff peak form; fold into egg whites. Fold egg white/whipped cream mixture into the cooled chocolate mixture.
  4. Refrigerate the mixture for 10 minutes

Assembly of Matcha Mousse Cake

  1. Spread the cooled Matcha Mousse on top of the cake. Refrigerate for 30 – 40 minutes until the mousse is settled.
  2. Spread the whipped cream evenly on top of the mousse.
  3. Refrigerate for 6 hours or more (you can leave overnight).
