Perfect for spring and summer months and perfect to accompany Gael Dantec’s Wine of the Week, this beautiful cake not only looks good but tastes great. It has a great combination of the smooth matcha and tart raspberries against a sweet nectarine. I love making this cake and I love eating it even more.

Ingredients:

150g butter.

100g caster sugar.

2 eggs.

1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

150g self-raising flour.

¼ teaspoon baking powder.

2 tablespoons buttermilk or yoghurt.

1 nectarine.

2 tablespoons matcha green tea powder.

1 handful of raspberries.

 

Method:

– Line a small loaf pan and set aside.

– Beat your butter and sugar till you get a nice thick pale cream texture, and then slowly beat in the eggs, one at a time.

– Add the vanilla extract.

– Add the green tea and combine.

– Add the yoghurt or buttermilk and then the flour.

– Do not over beat as this will result in a tough and chewy cake.

– Mix well, scraping down the sides and pour into your prepared tin.

– Throw some raspberries into the cake, but do not use too many.

– Slice the nectarines and place them along the top of the cake.

– Place some raspberries around the nectarines and put in the oven at 180 degrees for about 50 to 60 minutes.

– Remove from oven and let the cake cool for 5 minutes before releasing from the pan.

– Serve with fresh berries on the side.

 

This cake is a big hit and you will truly love it. In fact, it almost seems healthy: Raspberries, green tea, yoghurt and nectarines; it’s almost a fruit salad.
