Today I’ll be sharing one of my favorite cake recipes – vegan matcha marble cake. It’s moist, soft, and bursting with a unique matcha flavor. Not to mention the striking green swirls make this cake extra special. Whether you’re making it for an afternoon treat, or for a special occasion, this Japanese-inspired cake will be a keeper!
I love cake, but I love a simple cake even more. Loaf cakes are pretty high on the tier simply because they are just basic cakes. They’re not as sweet, they’re not dressed up in frosting – it’s just cake! So, for this cake, I knew I wanted to create a simple matcha cake. when I created my vegan ube marble cake I knew I wanted to do another one with matcha. I love the balance of vanilla and hints of matcha you get in every bite. And if you’re a matcha lover like I am, I know you’ll appreciate this cake.
To keep things short, it’s best to use culinary-grade matcha powder. Compared to ceremonial grade matcha, this one is sold in bigger batches. The main difference between the two types of matcha is how they are intended to be used. Ceremonial-grade matcha is intended to be consumed on its own when whisked with hot water, while culinary-grade matcha is designed to be added to lattes, baked goods, smoothies, and more.
Another tip is to make sure your matcha is high quality. High-quality matcha is expensive, vibrant in color, smells a bit sweet, and tastes smooth. Yes, it’s expensive, but you’re definitely getting your money’s worth out of it. Not only that, but you’ll create a better-tasting product! My favorite culinary-grade matcha is from Mizuba Culinary Grade Matcha.
