Keto Coconut Matcha Cake

Keto matcha and coconut cake recipe

Matcha, matcha, matcha …

I have decided this one be the last matcha recipe for a while probably. Reason being that I have noticed I’ve made so (too?) many recipes that include matcha green tea powder. At the same time, the matcha recipes do not seem to be in the most popular section. I don’t have much clue why this is the case. It might be that keto people are more of coffee lovers than green tea drinkers. It might also be that the recipes themselves just don’t seem too intriguing.

I do not mind, though. I love green tea, especially matcha. It is full of antioxidants. A bit on the expensive side but very delicious and beneficial for health. Combined with any kind of dairy (especially milk, but I do avoid it), its flavors get to some higher indescribable dimensions.

A quick and simple keto-friendly cake

Exactly. When it comes to baking cakes, the recipes don’t always need to be complex with complicating, hours lasting procedures. A layer of sponge cake with creamy frosting is sometimes enough to satisfy even the most demanding sweet tooths. What’s more, you don’t even need a cake slicer. In this regard, you can take this recipe without even making it a matcha one, and just enhance the frosting with vanilla or some other favorite flavor of yours.

  2. Refrigerate the cake for at least 4 hours or overnight before serving. I suggest you don't save it for dinner as matcha might keep you up for a while! 🙂
