Matcha Vegan Green Tea Cake Recipe with buckwheat flour, plain flour and almond milk

The weekend is here and it’s time to relax and enjoy some delicious food after a long, hard, working week.

To keep things simple and sweet, we have an easy and super tasty matcha recipe for you - Matcha Vegan Green Tea Cake Slices -  from Tess Begg, a regular contributor to Kenko Tea’s matcha food collection.

Tess has created many delicious, clean and healthy desserts with matcha, which you can check out here:

This delicious dairy free green tea cake does not have that neon green tea look because of the small amount of matcha used. But if you want to turn up the volume just add more matcha!

Green Tea Vegan Cake Slices, clean treat, healthy dessert with unrefined sugar and malt syrup

The sweetener used in the recipe is unrefined cane sugar, which comes in a natural state without being chemically processed. It retains a lot of nutrients like calcium, iron, and magnesium – which white refined sugar doesn’t.

It’s a great way to switch to healthy diet without cutting out on sugar completely.

Okie, it’s time to get down to the actions. Here is the recipe!

Vegan Matcha Green Tea Cake Slices

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • ¼ buckwheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp Kenko matcha powder ( adjust to suit your taste)
  • ⅓ cup vegan butter
  • ½ cup unrefined cane sugar
  • ¼ cup brown rice malt syrup
  • ⅓ cup almond milk

Method

  1. Whisk together plain flour, buckwheat flour, baking powder, & matcha in a bowl
  2. Beat butter, sugar, and malt syrup in another bowl till creamy
  3. Stir in flour mixture until mixed
  4. Mix in almond milk until combined and smooth
  5. Add more almond milk to adjust the consistency if needed (I added 2 tbsp)
  6. Pour into square tin lined with baking paper
  7. Even the surface with the spatula
  8. Bake at 190 C for 20-25 mins or until risen and fluffy

Lovely green color powder

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.
