Green Tea Cake
You’ll love all the real flavors in this incredible green tea raspberry cake! I start the cake with a simple vanilla cake batter and add loads of matcha green tea powder. Using this tea powder adds the most amount of flavor, and adds that bright green color to the batter. You can find this tea in most grocery stores or online on Amazon (affiliate link). You’ll get real green tea flavor with every bite, complemented by the fruity raspberry filling. Make sure to cool the tea cake layers completely before frosting and filling!
All the Raspberry Flavor!
Green tea and raspberry flavors go hand in hand! The simple berry filling is made with crushed fresh raspberries and just a touch of sugar. If you don’t have fresh raspberries on hand, frozen berries will also work well; just let thaw them first! Fill the layers generously with the fresh berries and frost them with a delicate raspberry buttercream. This raspberry frosting is so incredible! 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.
And if you want the ultimate Raspberry Buttercream to go with this cake, try my newest version of the recipe HERE! This buttercream is made with seedless raspberry sauce and has so much incredible flavor!
