Green Tea Chiffon Cake

Here's my adaption of the recipe Green Tea Chiffon Cake from the same book Okashi sweet treats made with love. I just love the aroma and taste of matcha or green tea powder in this light airy cake and it was gone within a day.




Here is the recipe (adapted from Okashi sweet treats made with love)

70g Plain flour
10g Green tea powder
5 Egg yolks
20g Caster sugar
70g Water
60g Canola oil or corn oil

Meringue
90g Caster sugar
10g Corn flour
5 Egg whites

Method:
  • Preheat oven to 170C
  • Sift flour and green tea powder together twice. Combine egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and mix well. Add water and corn oil and blend together. Add flour and green tea powder mixture and mix until batter becomes sticky. Set aside.
  • Make meringue ~ Combine sugar and corn flour. Beat egg whites until foamy. Add half the sugar and flour mixture and continue beating for a few minutes, then add remaining sugar and flour mixture and beat until egg whites are glossy, with stiff peaks.
  • **Add one third of meringue to egg yolk mixture and fold in lightly, then add remaining meringue and fold to incorporate completely. **I've changed this method the other way round ~ Slowly pour all the egg mixture into the meringue at low speed then stop machine. Using a rubber spatula and fold the mixture well.
  • Pour batter into an ungreased 20cm chiffon cake pan. Place in the oven and bake for 50 minutes then switch oven to lower grill for 5 minutes.
  • When cake is done, remove from oven and turn the pan over. Leave cake to cool in pan.
  • Once cake has cooled completely, carefully run a knife or spatula around the sides of the cake to loosen it.

**slowly pour egg mixture into the meringue

Enjoy!

  1. Perfect chiffon! I love the Green Tea chiffon, but it's hard to get good quality green tea powder here.

  2. I like the fact that this chiffon cake uses so little flour! I still have some matcha left, I can bake this cake now using your way of folding in the batter! :D Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi Ann,

    This is a beautiful cake! I love those patterns on top of your cake. Green tea is one of my favorite flavors. I especially like it in desserts as most green tea desserts are not too overly sweet (which I dislike). I'll bet my parents would love this too. Can I ask you if there was a reason why you decided to add the egg into the meringue instead of the other way around? Another great recipe!

  4. Ann, the cake looks so yummy! You're really tempting me to make one. I am extremely tired after all the travellings for the past few days. I hope someone can bake for me right now! haha.... Hope you're enjoying your day.

  6. Ann, thanks for supporting this event! I like the texture of your chiffon. I notice that you used a different method of mixing the egg yolk and egg white. Any difference?

  7. Padhu, Min Thanks alot Padhu :)

    Lequan, SSB ~ Thank you for your compliments. I have been using this method in most of my chiffon cakes (no special reason) because this method is quicker than adding egg white to egg yolk.

    Kristy ~ no problem but you must come here and collect the cake ;D

    Angie ~ Thanks!

  11. Ann, this is really pretty. I am also fascinated by you pouring the egg mixture into the meringue. Looks like it all worked out well! Did you use a paddle fixture for your mixer?

  31. Lovely!!! I did not know can add egg yolks into egg whites... Always thought chiffon must do egg whites into egg yolks because egg whites is lighter than egg yolks. Hehe, you have proven the theory otherwise!! :)

  35. What a lovely idea. I'm amazed that you get such a lovely green colour without any colouring. I definitely want to try this one, but not sure where I would get the Green tea powder. Do most Asian supermarkets stock it?

  36. This green tea chiffon cake is our all-time favourite dessert. I often bring one to party, everyone likes it.

  37. love your green tea chiffon cake...awww I wish I can bake chiffon like you. Mine always collapse before I can take a good picture of it...LOL! have to try again and again before I can get a good one :) I think whisking the egg white and folding them into the batter mixture is where technique is required :)

  38. Denise, Xiaolu, Christine, Ann:

    Thank you very much for your compliments.

    Vix ~ This matcha powder is actually imported from Japan. You may get this from Japanese grocery store.

    Elin ~ I think the trick is how you whisk the egg white, folding and the timing of baking is also very important.
