Matcha Cake Stack with Matcha Cream


Ingredients

4 egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
40 g castor sugar
4 egg yolks
30 g castor sugar
35 g cake flour
10 g Matcha powder

Matcha Whipped Cream

120 ml heavy whipping cream
1 Tbsp castor sugar
1 Tbsp Matcha powder

Method

Preheat your oven to 170°C. Using a hand whisk or an electric mixer, whisk yolks and 30 g sugar until pale and fluffy, around 5 mins. Sift in cake flour and matcha powder and fold until combined.

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk egg whites on low speed until soft peaks formed. Add cream of tartar and sugar a spoonful at a time while the mixer is running. Beat on high speed till stiff peaks formed. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the yolk batter till combined. Fold in the rest of the meringue until homogeneous.

Pour batter into a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bang the tray against the counter top for a few times to get rid of air bubbles. Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 20 mins. Let cool and cut into desired shapes.
