Raw, Vegan Matcha Green Tea Cake Recipe

April 15, 2014 2 min read

Now I just realized in all this time making matcha recipes I've never made a matcha green tea cake. I've made matcha smoothies, green tea ice cream, matcha lattes but no cake!

So when I discovered Chris' Matcha cake recipes I decided it was about time to make one. This recipe is a combination of two recipes - aMatcha Smoothie cake and aRaw Matcha Coconut Cake. With my own spin including avocado and mixed berries to garnish. It is raw, vegan, gluten free and completely delicious.

This recipe makes 2 Small Matcha Cakes or 1 Large Cake

Making the base of a raw matcha cake

  • Set aside and wash your blender as you will need for the filling
  • Throw all filling ingredients into a blender and blend create your mixture. It should be like a thick smoothie at this stage.Taste for flavor, if it needs some more sweetness you can add some agave or honey to suit your tastes.
  • Pour in your filling mixture until the top of the tins - shake the cake tins gently to spread it out evenly and create a flat top of the cake.

  • Put in the freezer for 1-2 hours - depending on thickness of your cakes. It should be chilled and become firm, but not completely frozen. I left one in overnight and it was rock hard the next day.
  • Remove from cake tins and serve immediately.

After being in the freezer for about an hour - The outside is firm while the center was still gooey. I ate it like this.

First matcha purchase!

So far I have made tea cookies, raw nut/fruit balls, smoothies, and plain matcha with cashew milk and it's all good to me! Don't have much to compare it to but a chain coffee shop latte experience years ago. I learned the amazing benefits that make the cost of matcha well worth the price.

I have yet to receive my order

This review is not about the quality of the set, but based on my customer service experience. Placed my order on April 13th, got shipping notification on April 14th, and the last shipping notification I got was April 16th saying USPS was awaiting the item in Buena Vista, CA. Emailed customer service April 22nd and received a response the same day from a member of your team saying he would inform me once he receives info from usps. I also contact usps and they stated they have no information regarding the package. As of today, April 27th, I have yet to receive any information about my order. This was meant as a gift that will now be late. Was very excited to try the set and the matcha, but this experience makes me doubt if I will order from Kenko again, unfortunately. Would appreciate this problem being solved as soon as possible. Thank you.
