Green Tea Pound Cake
For this recipe, you will need:
* 2 large eggs
* 1 cup flour
* 2/3 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup butter
* 1 tbsp maccha (green tea powder)
* 1/2 tsp baking powder
Combine Dry Ingredients
In a large bowl combine together flour, baking powder and green tea powder and mix them with a wooden paddle.
Cream the Butter
Soften the butter at room temperature. Mash it slightly with a fork so it's easier for the mixer to handle it. Insert the mixer and turn it on high, then slowly add the sugar and continue mixing it until they're combined. Then gradually add beaten eggs until you get a mousse consistency of a batter.
Combine All Ingredients
With the mixer running add your flour mixture to your butter-egg bowl and continue mixing until the batter is smooth.
Bake the Green Tea Pound Cake
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcious. Oil your loaf pan and pour the batter into it. Place your loaf pan in the oven for 30-40 minutes. You will see the pound cake is done when the sides of it turn golden brown and pull away from the pan. Take it out and cool it.
Serve it with a sprig of mint.
