Healthy Matcha – Blueberry Cake

Healthy Matcha – Blueberry Cake. So yes, it was about time we made a matcha cake, but how can you not  add some berries to it? The combination is mouthwatering and makes perfect for breakfast, afternoon tea, all-day-guilt free-pleasure!

Matcha tea has an intense flavour, just a tablespoon is enough for one loaf, but of course, that’s up to you. Many ways to add the berries, either stir in some to the batter and top with a few more, or add them on the top or just stir them all inside and bake! This time I decorated the top of the batter with the lovely berries and let the batter half-cover them while baking.

If you check the cakes on this blog, I usually follow one cake recipe and adjust it accordingly, depending on the theme ingredient. Yes, it’s mom’s recipe, it’s always a winner and makes either one loaf or 12 cupcakes-muffins! Lately I enjoy replacing the milk with vanilla flavoured soya milk but of course, you can always use fresh milk. Find the basic cake-recipe here: Royal Blue Cake
