What's great about it

It's no secret that I love my Matcha. One of the many reasons I love it is because of all the incredible health benefits - Matcha has the ability to boost you immunity, control your stress and gently support weight loss. Whilst I always start my day with a warming cup of Matcha Green Tea, I also love to use my matcha powder in recipes so I can enjoy all of it's wonderful health benefits. This Matcha Tea Cake is a delicious recipe from my Healthy Baking Cookbook and is perfect to serve for morning or afternoon tea.
