Green Tea Pound Cake
I made a marbled green tea pound cake to a friend's house recently and Evy loved it. And since I have all the ingredients at home, I made another one for her but this time I made it all green tea. This recipe was adapted from Kraftfood~ Grandma's Pound Cake; and definitely a keeper recipe for me. It is just as good without changing anything in the recipe, the pure vanilla extract itself made the cake Mmm..so good.
My Adapted Green Tea Pound Cake Recipe:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 pkg. (4 oz) Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
1 cup flour
1/2 Tbp. baking powder
1 tsp. green tea powder (for baking)
1/2 tsp. salt
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Beat butter in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed 1 min. Gradually add sugar, beating well after each addition. Beat an additional 5 min. or until very light and fluffy. Add cream cheese; beat 1 min. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
2. Combine flour, baking powder, green tea powder and salt. Add to butter mixture. Beat 1 min or until well blended. Pour batter into greased and floured 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 loaf pan and bake for 40 minutes.
