This delicate steamed cake is infused with the flavour of green tea, then decorated with black sesame seeds. Impressive dinner party fare.
This cake is extremely easy to make and tastes delicious. It wasn't very sweet (which was perfect) nor did the tea overpower the flavour (could have put a bit more). It flattened a little when I took it out of the steamer but regardless, it had a very nice springy consistency. I would definitely make this again, perhaps swapping matcha for cocoa. - 30 Jul 2013
this cake is not bad~~! i also added one cup of adzuki beans to it and some fruit with the whipped cream topping~! - 05 Jan 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This cake is not a "wow" but it sure is very good. I reduced the sugar, and used 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of splenda. The splenda does not affect the taste of the cake at all, so this is a good recipe for diabetics. I also baked 3/4 of the batter in a cake pan and the remaining 1/4 in 2 ramekins. Both version turned out well. Best served right out of the steamer I will be making this again. - 21 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
