Are you ready for a fancy dessert? Mr. Fearless Dining and I love matcha green tea. You have seen it in a few recipes on my blog like this Gluten Free Matcha Green Tea Banana Bread and these cute Gluten Free Matcha Green Tea Madeleines. We love the flavor and even the funny vibrant green color! You can see in the picture how light and fluffy these matcha cakes are!
Here is a quick video that shows you step by step how to make this delicious gluten free dessert.
I have slowly been working on improving my videos. I hope you like this one...it is hopefully the last video I make with iMovie. I finally splurged a little on Adobe's Premiere Pro. There are so many great video editing tools in this software. One thing I need to work on is lighting for videos.
Is matcha green tea gluten free?
I have been adding matcha green tea powder to all sorts of desserts that I have baked over the past year. It is so good in this easy gluten free matcha cake recipe.
If you have wondered how to use matcha in your baking and cooking, it is important to know that matcha comes in many grades of quality. There are several ceremonial varieties of matcha, and even culinary grade matcha. Ceremonial green tea is the highest quality matcha and it is preferred for the tea ceremony.
Culinary grade matcha is a little less defined as it is a newer term. I have experimented with both and I have found the culinary matcha is ground very fine. I highly recommend using a culinary grade matcha powder because it ensures your baking is not grainy!
(**Note, read the label when purchasing matcha green tea. Trader Joe's matcha is NOT gluten free!!)
What is matcha cake?
Matcha cake is a fluffy dessert cake that is made with matcha green tea. The color can be surprising, but the flavor is so worth making. I can't wait for you to try this green tea cake. For some reason, green tea gives the dessert a tropical feel to me. Matcha desserts are becoming more and more popular as more people discover matcha.
Add the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend.
I have tested three gluten free flour blends in this recipe. I liked King Arthur Gluten Free Measure for Measure, Nameste GF Flour, and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend. This doesn't mean other blends won't work, I just haven't tested any others. Try to avoid flour blends that are high in starch.
As always, if your blend does not contain Xanthan Gum, you will need to add 1 teaspoon.
Add your wet ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix.
Add your gluten free matcha cake batter to the mini bundt pans and bake at 350 degrees F. for 25-30 minutes until done.
How do you know when your cakes are finished baking?
The best way to test if your bundt cake is done baking is to insert a toothpick into the middle of the cake. If the toothpick comes back clean, your bundt cake is ready. If there is batter or crumbs on the toothpick, it needs to bake longer
Can you make one large bundt cake with this recipe?
You can easily make one large bundt cake, cupcakes, sheet cake, or a layered cake with this gluten free matcha cake batter.
You can use icing or frosting to decorate the mini matcha bundt cakes. Enjoy!!
