Moist, buttery matcha cake is a gorgeous green color with a subtle flavor of green tea. I’ve topped it all off with a creamy strawberry frosting! This is the perfect springtime cake!

Green Tea Matcha Cake with Strawberry Frosting

This gorgeous cake is perfect for spring! The green tea matcha cake paired with the pale pink strawberry buttercream would be perfect on any Easter table or brunch. OR if you are a matcha lover, for anytime of the year!

What To Expect:

  1. A beautifully green, green tea flavored sheet cake with a subtle sweetness.
  2. Easy to make in a 9×13 pan OR as a layer cake in 2 8- inch round cake pans. 
  3. Moist texture.
  4. Done quickly and can be served on a cake plate or right out of your 9×13 baking pan!

What Is Matcha?

Matcha’s literal translation is “powdered tea”. When you make green tea you steep the leaves into hot water and remove the tea bag (or leaves) from the water and enjoy! With Matcha Green Tea the leaves are pulverized and whisked into the water or milk so you are actually drinking the leaves. You can add the matcha powder right into the cake batter which naturally colors the cake or baked good a beautiful green color while giving it the subtle flavor of green tea!

Choosing The Right Frosting for This Cake

I love the matcha paired with strawberry frosting, but you can absolutely mix it up and use something different! Here are a few ideas:

  • Buttercream. A simple, vanilla buttercream frosting would pair beautifully with this cake! And I happen to have the best recipe out there!
  • White Chocolate Buttercream. White chocolate would be an amazing pair with matcha! I’ve linked up my recipe for my white chocolate that includes a white chocolate frosting recipe too!
  • Chocolate Frosting. My creamy chocolate frosting is amazing, and it would be a delicious topping for this matcha cake!
  • Heritage Frosting. This cooked frosting is an old fashioned treat! My mom used to always frost her red velvet cake with Heritage Frosting
