HOW TO MAKE KETO MATCHA (GREEN TEA) CAKE – GLUTEN & WHEAT FREE WITH DAIRY FREE OPTION
Some of you have requested or a Keto Matcha Cake (Green Tea), so here it is. It is so soft, moist, flavorful and delicious. The key is to use a good quality matcha powder and in the video, I used Uji Matcha. In order for the flavor to stand out, we need to use more matcha powder. During my experiment, I used 16 g or 4 tsp of Matcha Powder and the cake was so flavorful but I decided to reduce to 12 g or 3 tsp for this video. If you would like a stronger flavor, feel free to use 16 g or 4 tsp of Matcha Powder. The batter will be slightly thicker but it bakes up fine.Matcha is a special kind of powdered green tea, traditionally used in the Japanese tea ceremony. Matcha is unique among other types of green tea in both appearance and taste. It has a vibrant, beautiful green color, a subtle aroma, and a rich umami taste.Because matcha powder has a huge surface area, it deteriorates quickly through oxidation, especially in the presence of light, heat, and humidity. Oxidized matcha is yellow- or brownish-green, loses its prized aroma and flavor, and becomes bitter. Hence, it's important to store matcha powder in a non-transparent container in the fridge or freezer.Match powder is packed with nutrients and it is an excellent source of calcium, protein, potassium, vitamins A and C and more to help support the immune system. It’s also been linked with lowering bad cholesterol and blood sugar and with improving liver and heart health. Matcha is also high in fiber.
