Here i am submitting this post to Aspiring Bakers #7 – Chocolate Delight (May 2011) hosted by DG from Tested and Tasted http://testedandtasted.blogspot.com/2011/05/aspiring-bakers-7-chocolate-delight-may.html
Ingredient: (makes a 9 inch square tin)
- 160g cake flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 75 ml milk (divide into two portion)
- 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 Tbsp matcha
- 200g unsalted butter (room temperature)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 190g icing sugar
- 4 eggs
- 150g ground almonds

Methods:
  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Sift all flour together in a medium mixing bowl and set aside.
  3. Divide the milk into two portion and warm it. Add the cocoa powder in portion one and add the matcha in portion two mix well.
  4. In another large bowl beat the butter with the icing sugar until creamy.
  5. Slowly add eggs one by one and whisk till well combined.
  6. Mix in the sifted flour and ground almonds.
  7. Divide the batter into two portion. Mix portion one with the cocoa mixture and portion two with matcha mixture.
  8. Pour half portion of the chocolate batter in the well greased cake tin, cover with the matcha batter and finish with the remaining chocolate batter.
  9. Bake for 50 -60 mins or till cooked.

Notes:
  • I baked it in two oval cake tin.
  • Must line and grease the cake tin well.
  • Next time must add cream cheese frosting on the cake. It helps to enhance the taste.
  • Tips: Can add some chopped walnuts, almond flake, chocolate chip & etc.
  • I add 100g white chocolate chips to the chocolate batter.
