voor Nederlandse
4 eggs (separated, room temperature)
120 gr sugar
120 gr plain flour
½ tsp. salt
30 ml veggie oil + 40 ml milk
1 tbsp. matcha powder
Oval cake pan
This is one of my favorite cake pan! You can use a springvorm pan as well.
I`ve actually used two small cake pans as this recipe is good enough for one 18 ⌀ cm pan.
To release big airbubbles inside the cake. So. Drop it! (like it`s hot)
The Steps
1. Line a baking pan with baking paper and preheat oven to 150C degrees. In a clean large bowl beat the egg whites while gradually adding the sugar init to stiff meringue peaks with a handmixer.
2. Then add the egg yolks to this meringue batter and combine/fold with a whisk by hand until super creamy.
3 Sift in the plain flour, salt and the matcha powder into the meringue batter gradually and mix/fold it gently until the flours has combined and dissolved into the batter.
4 Lastly add in the oil and milk mixture to the batter and gently fold everything until smooth. Pour the batter in the prepared baking pan. Drop the cake pan a few times on a table or work surface to avoid large air bubbles inside the cake.
5. Bake the cake for 35 min. Increase the oven to 180C degrees for 3 minutes. Then let it cool down completely!
6. Run your knife carefully around the edges of the cake for easy unmolding. Enjoy your cake!


  1. this looks absolutely appetizing ugh! i looove sponge cake :9
    the only difficulty i find is to find the right matcha powder. my mom and i used to try baking matcha roll cake (which failed because we couldn't roll it to perfection) and the matcha powder we bought didn't look green - it looked... muddy dark green, like chinese herbal medicine LOL

  2. OMG! look so yummy! love everything Matcha!

  3. So beautiful!!! I love a green recipe :3 But I'm also loving that photo of the yellow yolks and your blue nails :3 Those colours together! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  5. Oooo I might have to try this with lemon zest - sounds so good
