Green tea coconut pound cake


1 cup unsalted butter

1 cup natural unrefined cane sugar

3 eggs

1/2 lemon juice

1 cup coconut milk

1 3/4 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 1/2 tablespoons matcha green tea powder


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • In one bowl beat together the eggs, juice of half a lemon and coconut milk.
  • In other bowl mix together the flour, baking powder and matcha green tea powder.
  • In a mixer, cream the butter and sugar until it becomes fluffy in texture (about 2 minutes). Turn off the mixer and scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
  • Turn the mixer on again and slowly add the eggs, juice of half a lemon and coconut milk. Mix for about a minute. Then slowly add the other bowl of ingredients (flour, baking powder and matcha green tea powder) and mix for another minute.
  • Take a loaf pan and grease it with butter. Then pour the mixture in it.
  • Put foil over then pan and place it in the oven for about 45 minutes. Then take off the foil and bake for another 30 minutes.
  • The cake is ready when you are able to place a toothpick through the middle with it coming out damp, but without batter.
  • Let the pound cake rest for half an hour or better yet… eat it the day after, when it has reached its maximum tastiness!
