Introduction

Gluten-free Matcha Cake

I really enjoy using almond flour in baking as it results in a richer, thicker consistency. As we enter spring in Japan and everything becomes matcha and sakura flavored, I wanted to try a matcha cake with a touch of sesame (neri goma). I’ve topped it with some salted sakura petals, but they’re really more for show as they’re quite salty! Enjoy this cake with tea or ice cream.

  • Blanched almond flour, 1 cup
  • Unsweetened matcha powder, 1/4 cup
  • Baking powder, 1 tsp.

  • Coconut oil, 2 tbsp.
  • Maple syrup, 1/4 cup
  • Tahini or neri goma, 2 tbsp.

      Garnish with pickled sakura petals and enjoy!
