I love baking and I love chocolate cakes, and I also enjoy drinking matcha to my cakes. I thought, why not combine both of it? So I created my very own Matcha Chocolate Marble Cake Recipe yesterday and it turned out so good!
The cake tastes delicious and that's why I thought, I'm not going to keep my recipe as a secret. Today I will share it with you, so you can try it on your own.
I would like to say, that this is my first self-created baking recipe ever and I'm so happy that it wasn't a fail. Hopefully I will create some more in the future, which I can show you on the blog too!
- 300 g Wheat flour
- 30 g Cacao powder
- 9 g Matcha powder
- 180 g Sugar
- 250 g Butter, softened
- 125 ml Milk
- 15 g Backing powder
- 8 g Vanilla sugar
- 4 Eggs
- electric mixer
- one big bowl
- two medium bowls
- kitchen scale (with Tare feature)
- measuring cup
- box-shaped baking pan (28 cm)
PREPARING THE CAKE DOUGH
Put wheat flour, sugar, butter, milk, baking powder, vanilla sugar and eggs in a big bowl and use an electric mixer to mix them all together for one minute on low level and one minute on medium level.
When everything is well-mixed, divide the mixture between 2 bowls.
Stir the cacao powder in one bowl and the matcha powder in the other bowl and mix them thoroughly.
Now you have the two doughs for your marble cake, the chocolate and the matcha one.
BAKING AND SERVING
Grease the baking pan thoroughly with butter and add the chocolate dough.
Now add the matcha dough and softly swirl the dough with a fork to create a marbled effect.
Put the cake into the oven and bake it for 45-55 minutes at 180°C (356°F). The cake is done, when a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Turn out the cake onto a cooling rack and leave to cool.
Step 5 (optional)
Version 1: Melt some bittersweet chocolate and pour it all over the cake. Leave time for the chocolate to harden. (That's what I did with my cake)
Version 2: Sprinkle the cake with some powdered sugar.
Version 3: Cover the cake with a frosting. If you're a super-duper matcha lover, you can also add some matcha powder to the frosting as well.
Now you're all done! Enjoy your delicious Matcha Chocolate Marble Cake!
I hope you liked this blog post, it's the first time, that I share something like this and like I said before, this is the first time I created an own baking recipe.
