Vegan Matcha Cake

Matcha.

The bitter yet delicate, sophisticated flavor attracts a lot of people. You can enjoy them not only as a drink but also snacks and desserts. You’d be surprised how expensive it can be in the US, but you pay what you pay for, meaning you won’t regret the flavor it will give. 

After enjoying several matcha latte for afternoon tea, I finally decided to bake a cake with them. With crunchy walnuts all over the cake, it will be gone before you know it! 

Ready for baking time? Let’s cook!

After you add flour, try to mix them in less than 10 touch. As many times you touch the dough, the cake will be rock hard!
