Mini Matcha Cake with Chocolate Chips 抹茶巧克力粒小蛋糕

Except the unpleasant shape of green, overall I like my creation very much.

The cake tastes very good. It's soft and spongy with a hint of matcha flavour.

Matcha not only goes well with red bean, it also goes well with chocolate. I think they both compliment each other.

4 eggs
80g sugar
¾ tbsp ovalette (aka sponge cake emulsifier or SP)
100g cake flour }
1 tbsp matcha (green tea) powder } sifted
½ tsp baking powder }
3 tbsp water
3 tbsp olive oil (you may use other vegetable oil)
50g chocolate chips

1) Add (A) in a mixing bowl, beat at low speed for a few seconds then change to high speed, beat till ribbon stage (mixture should be thick and fluffy)(it takes my small mixer about 7 - 8 minutes).
3) Add (B) and mix till well blended at low speed (should take only a few seconds. Do not over mix). Alternatively, you may fold in using a spatula.
4) Fold in (C).
5) Scoop batter into baking cup till 60% full and sprinkle some chocolate chips on top.
6) Bake in preheat oven at 190C for about 15 - 20 mins. Cool on wire rack.

1) This recipe yielded 13 big cups.
2) I lowered the temp to 180C after baking for about 8 mins.

  3. Hi Anncoo,

    It doesn't look nice lah but it definitely tastes good. :)

    U may adjust the amount of flour depending on ur liking of the texture. If u like it to be softer (less firm), reduce the amount of flour but I won't recommend to use more than 100g.

  4. From the picture, can see that it is yummy yummy...
