1 teaspoon baking powder
3 teaspoon matcha powder

How to Make Green Matcha Cake
Preheat your oven to 350 For 180 C degrees. Line with parchment paper square pan (11x11inch).
In a bowl, mix the butter and granulated sugar using a hand mixer. Add in the egg yolks and mix until combined. Add in milk and dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, and matcha powder. In a separate clean bowl, beat in the egg whites until stiff peak forms. With the help of a spatula, transfer the egg whites into the butter mixture and combine until fully incorporated. Spread the batter into a baking pan and bake for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool completely and cut it in four equal sponge cakes. Set aside.
To make the buttercream filling in a clean bowl beat in the egg whites alongside with granulated sugar. When stiff peaks form, slowly add in the softened butter and melted chocolate. Stir well and stir in the chocolate chips.
Take one of the matcha sponge cakes and spread with ¼ of the buttercream filling. Repeat the same process until you build a square cake and decorate it with matcha macarons if desired and fresh strawberries.
