Matcha /Green tea Chiffon cake


I have been keeping the Matcha powder I got from Japan like a little piece of jewel for the past few months.
Every time I see it in the cupboard, I just open it ,smell it ,close it tightly  and dare not to use it .. I paid quite a hefty price for the small can of Matcha powder.
In the past 3 months I just used 1 tspn of it for making a batch of cupcakes.
So this weekend I decided to bake something with the fragrant matcha powder and the dice fell for the Chiffon cake

Who doesn’t love the soft, fluffy, melt in your mouth chiffon cakes.
This one has a teeny tiny hint of bitterness from the Matcha powder and it has an amazing fragrance!

  7. I know what you mean about saving Matcha. When I was in Tokyo last year I bought a tin of it from Ippodo and I took it out of the cupboard every now and then and smelled it. My Japanese friend and I thought I was being silly so we used it to make a Matcha Chiffon Cake just like yours but bigger. It was delicious, especially with whipped cream. Next time I'll buy 2 tins.
