A few weeks ago I had the urge to make a matcha cake! I had some matcha green tea powder left over from these, so I made a layered coconut and matcha cake recipe with a matcha buttercream frosting! It turned out wonderful and was such a fun flavor combination! I used coconut extract to flavor the coconut layer and then organic matcha powder for the green layer. The color turned out perfectly! I also love how both flavors are tasted throughout the cake. I actually had enough cake to add one more coconut layer, but opted out of making it a 4 layer since it wouldn’t fit on a normal dessert plate! You have to make two cakes to get the layers. I started with a coconut and while it cooked made the matcha layer. If you’re up for a fun dessert or hosting a tea party, this matcha cake is the cake to make!
I used this buttercream recipe and added 2 tablespoons matcha powder to it! You can adjust and add what you think!
