Green tea cakes are the newest novelty but this green tea cake takes the cake, literally! My green tea cake is loaded with tons of fresh raspberries on the inside and frosted with a creamy raspberry buttercream! The green tea flavor is made intense by adding lots of matcha tea powder right into the cake batter. If you ever wanted to try a green tea cake before, give this one a try!
Watch my video recipe for all the sweet details!
I start the cake with a simple vanilla cake batter and add loads of matcha green tea powder. Using this powder adds the most amount of flavor, and adds that bright green color to the batter. You’ll get real green tea flavor with every bite, complemented by the fruity raspberry filling. The simple filling is made with crushed fresh raspberries and just a touch of sugar. If you don’t fresh raspberries on hand, frozen berries will also work well! The layers are then filled and frosted with a delicate raspberry buttercream. Make sure to add the berries at the very end when making the frosting, to ensure the cream doesn’t break.
Grab a few extra berries to garnish the top and add a light dusting of matcha green tea powder for a bit of color.
