  • Line a baking tin with grease-proof paper.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until creamy. 
  • Add one egg at a time and mix until evenly mixed with the butter and sugar.
  • Sift in the flour and the matcha powder and combine until you have a smooth mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into your baking tin and bake for around 45 minutes.
  • Leave to cool before serving or icing.

Finish with a dusting of icing sugar, or why not try the matcha-infused buttercream icing for a really indulgent treat? 

  • Simply mix the butter with sieved icing sugar and matcha powder. 
  • Add the vanilla extract and a tablespoon of milk to bind it together.
  • Ice once the cake is cooled.
