Chocolate Matcha Bundt Cake

After all the baking and tempering of chocolate to bake a cake like Sachertorte.. it sure was an easy peasy job baking something like this...

I hv never ever like to drink tea... i dont know why... gv me coffee and i will drink it like water lol nevertheless that doesnt gv me the reason not to try to bake something with tea... and especially after seeing Bakerella gorgeous Chocolate matcha bundt cake.. it was kind of a no brainer..

Surprisingly enough... after eating a slice I really really really like the taste of this cake... its moist, rich, and dense, and the colors are every bit as beautiful as I’d hoped it would be... I must admit that I like the chocolate better than the matcha, but what can I say – I’m a chocolate person by a mile... will definitely bake it again and again and again!

Chocolate Batter
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder (i used valrhona cocoa powder) 
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Matcha Batter
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 tbsp matcha powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients
3 cups sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
3 large eggs, room temperature
1 3/4 cup milk (or soy milk), room temperature
1 tsp vanilla essence or extract

Preheat the oven to 175C. Grease a 10 cup bundt pan and dust with cocoa powder, or flour. There will be batter leftover for cupcakes so prepare 6 muffin tins, or use a 12 cup bundt pan instead.

Whisk together all the ingredients for the chocolate batter in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the matcha batter.

Cream the butter and sugar with the paddle attachment of a mixer. Add in the eggs, then the milk and vanilla. Mix until thoroughly combined, then separate into two bowls.

Mix the chocolate batter ingredients into one bowl of the wet ingredients, and mix the matcha batter ingredients into the other bowl of wet ingredients.

Spoon the two batters into the bundt pan, alternating batters until the pan is 3/4 full. Drag a long, thin knife through the batter to create a marbled effect. Fill the muffin tins with the leftover batter.

Bake the bundt cake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. The cupcakes take less time to cook, around 50 minutes. ( i decided to use my mini bundt pan instead of baking em as cupcakes.. ) 

Note: I wanted the matcha to be a surprise and put chocolate batter against the pan for the cake... it turned out lovely and yep hb was surprised alright! hehehe
