Ingredients

    For the cake:

    • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 6 eggs, room temperature
    • 1 tsp. baking powder
    • 1 1/4 tsp. salt
    • 3 cups flour
    • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
    • 1 cup buttermilk, room temperature
    • 2 tbsp. Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha

    For the glaze:

Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350. Butter and flour a 10-12 cup bundt pan.
    2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter until smooth. Scrape the bowl and add the sugar. Beat for 1-2 minutes, until well light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
    3. In a small bowl, combine the baking powder, salt and flour. Add half of the flour to the mixer and mix on low until just combined. Add the vanilla and buttermilk and continue mixing to combine. Add the remaining dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Remove half of the batter from the bowl and place in a small bowl. Add the matcha powder to the remaining batter and mix to combine.
    4. Fill the bundt pan using alternating scoops of vanilla and matcha batter. Use a knife to gently swirl the batter together. Be careful not to over-swirl or you will lose the definitive swirls and just have green batter.
    5. Bake 50-60 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes before inverting it onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
    6. Once the cake is cool, make the glaze. In a stand mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment, mix the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Scrape the bowl and add the matcha powder, Whisk until combined. If the glaze seems too thick, add milk a splash at a time until it reaches your desired consistency.
    7. Use a small spatula to glaze the top of the cake, letting the glaze drip down the sides. This cake is best served the day it is made. If you are not serving it the same day, wrap the unglazed cake in plastic wrap to keep it fresh and apply the glaze just before serving.
