To follow up with my post on Maeda-en Matcha (Green Tea Powder), I used it today to make a Green Tea Pound Cake. Nick Malgieri’s recipe (from Perfect Cakes) calls for 2 tablespoons, roughly half of the $10 container. As opposed to the outstanding green tea ice cream, I don’t think the expensive green tea is worth it for pound cake. It doesn’t get to shine here. Don’t get me wrong; the pound cake is still a nice way to start your morning, but I think a cheaper green tea powder would do just fine. I will be testing some cheaper matcha powders soon.
