This gorgeous cake is quite simple to make, and you probably already have most of the ingredients in your kitchen. The perfect cake for Christmas with its earthy, not overly sweet taste that will definitely make everyone smile. Cut into 4-6 slices and if there are leftovers, which I highly doubt, this cake stores well in the fridge.
I was in a bit of a pickle when I decided to make this recipe. It’s because I didn’t want to make it in the first place. I thought, just buy a cake from our local bakery that I know my family likes and I’d be done with it. That’s when I came across this matcha ingredients, and it really piqued my interest and just had to make a recipe for it.
A glass of black coffee will make a great pair for this cake, and the taste will really complement each other. You can also add some dark chocolate to give it a deeper and earthy taste. Whatever it is, feel free to add your own touch to it.
