Bundt, what’s matcha?

Chocolate Matcha Bundt Cake

Matcha is what I used to make the marbled part of this bundt cake green. Matcha is a fine powdered green tea used in Japanese tea ceremonies or, in this case used to help me celebrate an Irish Holiday. (Happy St. Pat’s everyone!) Makes sense to me. I mean it is green. I’ve actually been wanting to try this unusual ingredient ever since I saw this matcha loaf cake on Fresh From the Oven’s website. The color was so beautiful and I had never seen anything like it. So, it went straight on my “to try” list. You can check out her recipe here or the one I used below.

First, I greased a 10-cup Bundt Pan. (But, based on the amount of batter I had, I really needed a 12-cup. I’ll tell you why in a minute.)

Crisco Coated Bundt Pan

After greasing with Crisco, I dusted it with cocoa. Using cocoa instead of flour helps to keep white specks from showing up on chocolate cakes when you remove them from the pan. You can also probably get away with Pam if you have a regular Bundt pan. However, this pan has so many grooves, the first time I made it, the cake just stuck to the sides. I was forced to dump it in a bowl and spoon feed myself chunks of cake. I know… terrible. Terribly good!

Cocoa Coated Bundt pan

Below is the matcha I used. I found it at Whole Foods. YAY! I don’t really know anything about matcha, so I am assuming it’s okay. The cake tasted great, so it’s good enough for me. But, if any matcha experts are out there, feel free to give me the lo-down.

Matcha Powder

Here it is next to the cocoa I used. It was Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa and it was yummy.

Matcha & Cocoa Powder

Follow the recipe below to create the two batters and then drop alternating spoonfuls into the bundt pan.

Chocolate Matcha Cake Batter

And if you want it to look more “marbled,” then take a knife and gently run it through the batter in a swirling motion. Just once or twice should be good enough.

Chocolate Matcha Cake Batter

Pretty! Now, take a good look at the above picture. I filled the pan with a little too much of the batter because it overflowed from the pan and then sank a little. Okay, it fell! Boo Hoo! So either use a 12-cup Bundt or use some of the batter and make a batch of cupcakes.

I managed to salvage it enough to get some pictures though.

Chocolate Matcha Bundt Cake

The cake was really, really good. It was dense and moist. It’s especially good still warm. So good, that it didn’t even need frosting.

Chocolate Matcha Bundt Cake

Chocolate Matcha Bundt Cake

Chocolate Mixture
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

Matcha mixture
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2-3 Tbsp matcha powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Wet ingredients
3 cups sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3 eggs, room temperature
1 3/4 cup milk, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Grease and flour (or cocoa) a 10 or 12 cup Bundt pan. (If using a 10-cup pan, you can reserve any extra batter for cupcakes.)
  • With a wire whisk, mix the dry ingredients for the chocolate mixture in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In another small bowl, do the same for the matcha mixture.
  • Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, milk and vanilla and mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Divide the creamed mixture evenly in two separate bowls.
  • Slowly add the chocolate mixture to one half of the creamed mixture and mix thoroughly.
  • Then, add the matcha mixture to the other half of the creamed mixture and mix thoroughly.
  • Drop alternating spoonfuls of each mixture into the bundt pan until it’s about 3/4 full.
  • For a marbled effect, gently run a knife through the two batters in a swirling motion. (Once or twice will do the trick.)
  • Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Enjoy!

Also, here’s a bunch of Bundt pans and my favorite Bundt Classics Cookbook.
And here’s some other brands of matcha.

Beautiful cake!! I just made a green tea chiffon cake yesterday using my bundt pan also :)

They make green tea cake in Korea – just add Matcha powder to a favorite sponge cake recipe. It adds a depth of flavor. Then, they layer it with red bean paste ( sweet). It’s quite tasty once you get used to the sweet bean concept.

Tricia Roth said...

I’m a food buyer, and I have bought Matcha in bulk before. It’s not easy! I think there is a very expensive matcha that is seasonal and processed by hand. And, there is a less expensive matcha that is still seasonal, but available year round, processed by machine and therefore much cheaper. The cake looks interesting, and your escapades with PW have me itching to make cake balls!

I love matcha and use it in anything from tea to lattes and salt. I am always looking for recipes that use it. This is so on my to make list! In fact, it may go to the front of the line! I usually buy my matcha online, its good to know that Whole Foods has it!

It looks so beautiful! Great job!

VeggieGirl – You are always so quick. Hey!

Judy in Indiana – I wanted to try green tea flavored cake.

Funky Food Trisha – I like the way you think

miss M.J. Ma’am – it was hard for me to tell with the dark chocolate.

rasilla – it wasn’t very strong to me. Now I need to taste it in actual tea.

Sarah Scottastic! – YAY

Islipian – never had green tea ice cream.

Mandy – so glad you like it Mandy!

makefabcakes – maybe I will too.

apparentlyjessy – that’s a bummer. It was kinda hard for me to find here, too.

Becky said...

That IS a gorgeous color…and the photos make me drool!

Does the tea add a strong flavor of it’s own? I wonder how it would be with a dab of peppermint flavoring added in to make chocolate mint cake?

When I saw the title, I could just see the mom from My Big Fat Greek Wedding saying “Boon-dt”, lol.

ern said...

Reading your description about using the matcha I couldn’t help but think of a similar ingredient commonly used in Malaysia, where I’m currently living. It’s called Pandan and it is used to flavor EVERYTHING, but usually sweets. It gives the baked goods a sort of…floral taste? That’s as close as I can describe it. I have NO idea if you can get it in the States, but after seeing pictures of your YUMMY-looking matcha cake I’d be interested to see what you’d do with another Asian ingredient!

Y said...

Yay for swirly cake and yay for matcha! I haven’t used that one you bought before, but you should try looking for a matcha brand that contains pure matcha (that rishi brand seems to have sugar and brown tea in it as well) – the colour is a lot greener, and that unique flavour will also be more pronounced (it’s a beautiful grassy, slightly bitter flavour).

Little Miss Cupcake said...

Wow, I love the way this looks – just beautiful! Luckily we have matcha aplenty here in Paris, France. I made some marbled cocoa-matcha cupcakes a few weeks ago, like the ones Jamieanne made for Iron Cupcake, and found the batter with the matcha cooked up so fluffy and light. It’s delicious. My one problem is that I couldnt eat too much as the théine (tea version of caffeine as it is called here) kept me up all night! Hazards of baking, I gues! :)

Jen said...

Hello,

I’m surprised that the cake turned out green even if your matcha powder isn’t green in colour at all (or maybe it’s the photo lighting). The Japanese brands I have used are very green in colour (added colouring perhaps? or could be its true green colour)and quite bitter too. I’d like to know if they’re differnt tasting from the sweet one you have. Look for them in the Asian aisle of supermarkets or your oriental marts.

my mom makes a similar green and chocolate swirled bundt cake, except the green is made by adding pistachio pudding to a yellow cake mix. I need to figure out a scratch recipe for this, but for now, I’ll just have to do with boxed. (this one doesn’t need frosting, either – just a fine dusting of powdered sugar) I will need to try this recipe, though. I love green tea.

Jenn said...

I LOVE maccha! My Japanese boyfriend introduced it to me when he brought some from home. There are many different grades of maccha, as well as unsweetened and sweetened. In my experience, the higher the quality, the more bitter it is (but that’s just my experience…don’t quote me!) Higher qualities are typically used in formal tea ceremonies and for straight drinking and probably less so in cooking.

The sweetened maccha is more often used in cold dessert drinks (lattes, flavored milk, etc), just like you’d use chocolate syrup, so you wouldn’t have to be bothered with drying to dissolve sugar.

Unsweetened is used in just about anything you can think of. I liken it to unsweetened cocoa powder. I’d say either one is good for baking, though if you wanted to add the flavor of the green tea with out the sweetness, go for the unsweetened variety.

Hi Bakerella!
I made your cake this evening. I didn’t have matcha, so I cut open some green tea bags and whipped it through the food processor. I ended up with specks in my batter, but the green tea flavor came through in the end product. I told my husband they were just chocolate crumbs. ;)
Check out my blog for pictures of my cake. Not nearly as good as yours, but passable.

I had no idea so many people have used matcha. I am impressed! I definitely need to branch out more with the ingredients. I'll keep trying.

Becky – it wasn't too strong

ern – I'm looking that up

Y – thanks for the tip

Kate – Whoa – you are fast

LaDue & Crew – Keep it up. That's awesome.

Vera – I didn't think it was that strong. But it could have been the brand.

Little Miss Cupcake – you are lucky.

Girl Japan – I'm jealous!

thereddeer – Whole Foods?

Jen – this was actually a lighter green. I've got to find some stronger varieties to get the really dark green like the link to Fresh From the Oven's in the post.

Nicole – I haven't, but thanks!

amarus – it should

The Gomes Family – Ha!

Cakespy – I want a shamrock shake!

Lori – I love a cake that's good enough on it's own

Jenn – great info… thanks!!!!

cAkEkItO – I'm happy you're here, too!

Jessica colored papers

Robynn's Ravings – try online. There is a link in this post. $32 is outrageous. It must be potent.

Tony and Cayla – Creative. I like it

I love Nordicware! I have a ton of them – and the best advice is to use Baker’s Joy Spray (cooking spray with flour, formulated I believe by Nordicware). All of the nooks and crannies of the designs come right out perfectly.
And I need to try this cake.
A few years ago, Starbucks had a blackberry green tea frappucino, and it was the best thing ever. I’ve been on the lookout for affordable matcha ever since.

Whoa! I had never heard of Matcha before.

I did a quick google search and found a recipe for a cake without the chocolate swirl.

Anyways, I’m going to try making your cake balls out of them. Depending on how that goes I’ll use that instead of the oreo balls next year.

It looks delish! Keep up the great work Bakerella!

The cake looks yummy & beautiful!

I made green tea mini muffins for our church "cafe" (coffee & omemade muffins). I had a hard time finding matcha. Whole Foods did have it in their bulk section, but it was VERY expensive for a tiny bit. I've never seen it in a can– will have to look again. Thanks for the "heads up"!

Used to work for jamba juice and there we would serve up ‘matcha green tea shots’ for energy. It has natural caffiene that wont cause you to crash like sugar will. The shots were made using 4 oz. of liquid (either soy milk or orange juice, or if you are a fan of creamsiciles you can half soymilk and half OJ and you’ll never know it wasnt a popsicle), and shaking together with ice in a shaker and then straining into a shot glass. Its a great pick me up and not to mention, tastes great too! Thanks for this suggestions :)

I just found your blod recently and I am obsessed! I made your cupcake bites for my 4 year old’s birthday party and I cant believe how much everyone loved them! They all thought I was this amazing baker, which I am not at all! My little bro has Cystic Fibrosis and had a Liver transplant 3 years ago we always celebrate with a party and I thought how fun to make them themed in some way, any ideas?
