Green Tea Cake For Christmas (Fat Free)

Put on your reading glasses and get out a pen and notepad because you need to get ready for this…

My Brother’s 11 (Really) Stupid (but perhaps logical) Rules for Harmonious Living

.

  1. Mum is always right, even if she’s actually wrong
  2. You must always be home on time for your favourite TV programme (I hate this rule, we’ve rushed home like crazy people just to comply with this stupid rule of his many many times… and fyi, the TV programme is always only his favourite, not ours)
  3. If you like a movie/television programme, everyone has to watch with you (even if they hate it and throw invisible daggers at you throughout the programme/movie)
  4. Don’t go into a supermarket carrying a plastic bag from another supermarket– they’ll chase you out (I’ve proved this wrong time and time again but he still adamantly believes its true)
  5.  Do not go out alone with your sister, because people will mistake you to be her boyfriend (not if I kick his groin in public, or call him bro out loud for everyone to hear… but you know what? I’ll go with the first one… I have always wanted to do that…)
  6. Always pay when you’re out at a restaurant with your girlfriend (even if you’re broke– from paying the last time)
  7. When you’re out with you’re girlfriend, say you’re going out with your best friend MX
  8. Try not to accidentally crumble cards and gifts from your girlfriend, though they always get crumbled anyway– the effort adds a good-guy point
  9. When your girlfriend has long hair, you like girls with long hair. When your girlfriend cuts her hair short, you like girls with short hair. Without hesitation.
  10. Always look good, there’s no such thing as too many suitors
  11. Look older than your sister, that way you can boss her around (good one…)
Amused?
 .
Get over it.
 .
We need to get on to another ‘issue’– My Green Tea Cake! for CHRISTMAS!

You have no idea how hard it is to get good pictures of these green monster. Ugghh. After tedious editing trials in Photoshop and Picasa and Picnik, the photographs still look utterly horrendous.

 .
Honestly, looking at the photos, you probably wouldn’t want the recipe. But just to record my successful attempt (yes, it does taste very good), I shall put down the recipe anyway.

Ingredients

For Cake
  • 5       large eggs
  • 60g   castor sugar45g   all-purpose flour
  • 5g     matcha powder 
.
For Filling
  • 2 tbsp peanut flour
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup/ agave syrup/ malitol syrup
  • 2 tbsp light butter/ reduced fat spread
Optional: Fondant (I used homemade marshmallow fondant)
.
.

Directions

Note that a hand mixer can be used in place of the stand mixer for this recipe.

Bake cake according to this recipe, adding matcha powder with flour.  I used cake flour instead of all-purpose flour, making the cake denser but a bit softer. Let cool completely before removing from cake pan.

Filling:
Blend all ingredients in a blender/food processor OR  mix in a stand mixer/ hand mixer.

To assemble:
Slice cake into half diagonally. Spread filling on the bottom layer. Place top half back onto bottom half.

Shape fondant however you want if using.
