Yes matcha lovers, your 5-minute cake is HERE!! If you haven’t made a mug cake before, you’ll be absolutely blown away by how easy and FAST it is.

For top speed, use a microwave. Full disclosure, I’m not a microwave fan and making this recipe was probably the first time I’ve used mine in five years. However, it works perfectly for this recipe. You’ll also get to watch your cake batter puff up in one minute right in front of you like a super-cool science experiment! If you don’t use a microwave, you could experiment with putting the batter in an oven-safe ramekin and baking it in the oven.

This recipe uses coconut sugar which is less refined than regular sugar. It also uses UNSWEETENED matcha powder which has a bitter taste (don’t be alarmed) but tastes amazing in the cake.

Matcha is a type of green tea that hails from Japan. They take the green tea leaves and grind them into a fine powder. This means when you consume it, your consuming the entire leaf, vs. the leaves just being steeped in a tea. Because of this matcha powder typically contains about 10 times the antioxidants regular green tea does. Sip on it, bake with it, throw it in a smoothie, make ice cream, there are so many ways to consume matcha!
