These cakes are very easy to make and very tasty! Sweet, fluffy, and moist with a lovely, light green color.

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp matcha green tea powder (see note)
  • 1 (6-oz) container vanilla yogurt
  • 3 large eggs whisk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup canola oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350'F. Place paper cups in the muffin pan.
  2. In a big bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and matcha powder. Add the yogurt, eggs, vanilla, and oil and stir until combined.

  • You can also make miniature bunt cakes if you have the little pans. I made a few bundt cakes as well as cupcakes.
  • I like to use Maeda-En* universal quality matcha green tea powder.
