Chocolate Matcha Bundt Cake

Happy Thanksgiving to all! I am so excited when seeing everyone enjoying roasted turkey with cranberry sauce and all kind of dishes served on their thanksgiving tables. Especially the desserts! Really mouthwatering. Though I'm not celebrating it, I'm still looking forward to have something sweet to ease the crave. What an excuse! haha....

And here's the recipe for this cake.

Ingredients :
(A)
1-1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1-1/2 tspn baking powder
1/2 tspn salt

(B)
1-2/3 cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp matcha/green tea powder
1-1/2 tspn baking powder
1/2 tspn salt

(C)
2-1/2 cup sugar
230gm butter, softened
3 eggs
1-3/4 milk
1 tspn vanilla extract

* melted chocolate for decoration as desire.



Method :
(1) cream butter and sugar untill fluffy then add in eggs & mix to combine.
(2) beat in the milk untill well mix.
(3) divide the mixture into 2 portion (about 2 cups each).
(4) add in portion to ingredients (A) & the other to ingredients (B) and mix well.
(5) coat the bundt cake tray with butter & flour.
(6) pour half portion of mixture (A) into the baking tray and then follow by all mixture (B).
(7) finally, top with the remain mixture (A).
(8) slightly swirl the batter with a spoon.
(9) bake at 165'C preheated oven for about 1 hour 15 mins.
(10) leave cake to cool before removing it from the tray.
(11) then decorate the top with melted chocolate.

Green tea is never the favourite of my family but at least they didn't complain a thing about this cake. The cake is actually quite huge and we managed to finish it the following day. I like the texture a lot. And hope you will too!

By the way, any of you watching this Korean drama series, 'Tamra The Island'? I bought the tape and already finished watching it. Gosh, the story is marvellous, very touching! I can watch it over & over again. I enjoyed the songs very much too. So, do you have any comment based on this movie?

Hi Kristy! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family too! Your bundt cake looks marvelous! I have a question though...is it Matcha or Mocha? Your title says mocha but you are using green tea powder in the recipe. :P

Heavenly Housewife said...

Being an american but living in the UK, I dont celebrate thanksgiving, and I miss it when I see all the yummy stuff people are eating. Yesterday though, Mr P took me to my favorite restaurant and I ate loads of food, so it was ok :D.
I am not a fan of green tea either, but you cake looks lovely. I would so like to have a slice :D
*kisses* HH

Peanutts said...

wow , nice cake :), sorry I dont watch the korean drama's mainly because they dont have english subtitles. By the way made the corn bread to serve with a beef stew :) went against the traditional chilli corne carne, have anice week end

Alice Law said...

iThe cake is adorable, it looks like a huge donut... donut is Juan Juan's all time favourite!^-^

I didn't watch since normally we are not at home on Sunday evening, but 'Tamra The Island' sounds interesting!

Have a nice weekend!

Megan said...

Hi Kristy! Sooo I haven't seen the drama so I can't comment there. But... that cake is glorious... I love matcha in things... the green is super cool!

Happy day to you and I am glad you could have an excuse to make something sweet! xoxo
Megan

Cheah said...

Lovely cake, especially since I like greentea. No, can't comment on Korean drama because I never like to watch them, more so if it's dubbed! Btw, how big is that bundt tin?

Dimah said...

Mmmm, this looks delicious!

I’ve an award for you (The Versatile Blogger Award), please come and pick it up when you’re free

Barbara said...

The cake looks delicious, Kristy! I love the splash of color on top. The swirls are such fun and the cake looks so moist! No wonder it only lasted a couple days!

Kumi said...

Looks really decadant. :-) Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!

Drick said...

another pretty dessert and darn good recipe Kristy, looks and sounds so interesting and tasty - hope you are doing well, I have been very busy with work and little time with blogging lately but did manage to cook a Thanksgiving dinner (no turkey this year, did a southern bourbon glazed ham)... take care and best wishes for a great month ahead

Pegasuslegend said...

Kristy this is awesome! thanks for the well wished even though you don't celebrate...do you have a similar festivity that you all celebrate to?

3 hungry tummies said...

That is a wicked looking cake...why am I seeing cakes everywhere?

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

This look beautiful and good. I have no time to watch drama recently.

pe said...

Such an amazing looking cake. nom nom! I love drama. will have to note this down.

alwayswinner786 said...

Kristy dear what a lovely cake with green tea and those pink chocolaty lace decor, Santa will definitely knock your door this year for a heavenly cake treat!

lena said...

kristy, did you really get the bundt cake pan for RM2? Unbelievable..the cake looks simply gorgeous to me. Yummy! oh i think the korean dramas are getting you drunk..on the matcha and mocha!!

Lyndsey said...

Kristy thank you for your Thanksgiving wishes! We went to my aunt and uncle's house and I brought pie and wine! Today is my daughter's birthday 16 today, shessh time flies!

I'm not a big green tea fan either, but I do have some match that I try to use in things. I have to bring a cake to work on Monday (don't ask me how I got myself into that one). Do you think I could make this? It looks awesome and I love how good the texture looks and the touch of matcha swirled inside. The topping is stunning! The cherry on top of the sundae...hehe...or icing on the cake. Okay enough...now it sounds like I've been watching too much Korean dramas!

Brownieville Girl said...

Really beautiful cake.

Havn't come across the movie though.

My Little Space said...

MaryMoh : You just reminded me of your last Winter. The snow was actually lasted untill this April or somewhere sbout. And now it's snowing again.

Ann : Thank you!

HH : You lucky lady! Guess, you're having a fantastic thinksgiving. And no need to cook! ha!

Peanutts : Oh yeah, you're right! They only have Malay subtitles. Sorry about it! Beef stew sounds as good.

Alice : If Juan Juan saw this, she must be wondering how to eat such a gigantic donut! haha....

Megan : Thanks, dear! We chat later.

Cheah : haha... not all of the Korean drama series! I only like a few of them. Those with laughters & tears & romantic at the same time! They really lifted up my spirit! Btw, the bundt cake pan is around 22-24cm large.

Dimah : Thanks a million for the award. That's very sweet of you. I am honoured and really appreciate it.

Barbara : I wish there's some leftover so that I can make some cake pops. Too bad non left!

Drick : It's OK. I think we;re all busy. Will chat later.

Claudia : We have one festival which is quite similar to thanksgiving, we called it as 'winter soc' festival. It falls on every December or one month before our Chinese New Year.

3HTummies : Definitely you're craving for one! haha....

Sonia : Do take care! Busy lady.

Pe : I bet you will love this drama! Would love to hear from you more often.

Sutapa : Haha... yeap, keep dreaming!

Lena : No, I got the pan from Mydin supermarket. I got it less than $10! Since this is a China product, so I think probably the 2 ringgit shop also available. Actually, the 2 ringgit shop not everything is $2. Some cost more than $2.lol! I'm not addicted to those dramas. I only like a few of them. Like 'The man in vineyard', 'Gong', 'Coffee Prince' & now this one.

Lyndz : Sounds like you guys were having a fabulous time! Did you get Maranda the cake? And you have to bake a cake this Sunday! ha... Looking forward to it.

Brownieville Girl : Thank you so much!

Thanks everyone for visiting and spending your weekend here with me. Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend and enjoy!

Blessings, Kristy

tigerfish said...

Lovely bundt cake - the pink really is striking though I am not a fan of this color.

Kimberly Peterson said...

alison said...

AngelineBK said...

Kristy, I've tried the ice cream cake with swiss roll, not bad for the 1st attempt (try with simple ingredients & hope it works). Will go for another try!

U like korean drama too? me too! Have a nice day

denise @ quickies on the dinner table said...

Very pretty bundt cake Kristy!! I tried making something similar once, and the texture was amazing, like yours, but I didn't really enjoy the combination because I wanted a very dark green so I put too much matcha and the matcha flavour and chocolate flavour ended fighting with each other so the taste was a bit strange :P I feel like trying it again as your cake looks so tempting!

I haven't seen this series, but I am currently watching Golden House (not faithfully though) and I find it quite twisted yet funny!

Abbey said...

I've always thought bundt cakes were beautiful, this one looks great!

Mary said...

What a lovely cake. Your photos of it are wonderful as well. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Fimère said...

Sweet Artichoke said...

Yum, yum! I love matcha cakes! Yours looks stunning, delicious and perfectly moist :-)

elra said...

I never succeeded in making anything with mancha, always came out bitter. Perhaps, I shall get the right brand for this green tea powder.

Looks wonderful as always.

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

So pretty! I love that combo and the icing.

Cheers,

Rosa

Joy said...

Kristy I am very tempted to rent that series...perhaps I JUST MIGHT :) This cake looks lovely, who gets to eat all these wonderful cakes you make?

Zoe said...

I can admire the texture of your bundt cake as you do. It look very moist inside. Thanks for the info about the Korean drama :D

My Little Space said...

tigerfish : Thanks! Glad you like it too. ^_^

Kimberly : I think we all adored girlie kind of stuffs huh! ha..

Alison : Thank you!

Angeline : Yes, I saw that! It was so lovely. Glad that you tried it out.

Denise : I've never tried any other green tea branding. I get my green tea powder at the specialty shop. I think it's just nice not too strong. Wish you luck, honey! Golden House! I don't like the actor & sctress. So, never watch! hehe... I prefer those Korean movies with laughter & touching stories at the same time.

Abbey : Thanks! Do you have time for this?

Mary : You too! & thank you!

Fimere : Merci, welcome you to join me.

Sweet Artichoke : Hi there, welcome to my humble little space. Glad that you like the cake too. Hope to hear from you more often.

Elra : Wish you luck!

Rosa : Thank you! It looks very girlie huh!

Joy : I'm sure you will love the drama. Please let me know after you've finished the movie, ya!

Zoe : You're welcome! I just adored this drama alot. I think the theme song is absolutely amazing.

Thanks everyone for spending your time with me. It's a great pleasure for having you here. Hope you're all having a fabulous day.

Cheers, Kristy
