Go green! Serve these cute little green tea-flavoured cakes dusted with icing sugar and a sprinkle of extra matcha powder.

Made using OMGTea Japanese Matcha Tea in our 12 Hole Madeleine Tin.

Ingredients

  • 110g butter, melted, plus extra for greasing
  • 1 tbsp matcha powder
  • 130g caster sugar
  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 30g ground almonds
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • Icing sugar and matcha powder, for dusting

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/ Gas 5. Brush the holes of our 12 Hole Madeleine Tin with a little melted butter.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and matcha powder, then add the caster sugar, flour, baking powder and ground almonds, mixing well.
  3. Beat the eggs and milk together, then stir into the mixture and beat until smooth. Spoon into the moulds, putting 2 level tablespoons into each one. Bake the first batch for 12-13 minutes, until lightly tinged with brown. Cool for 3-4 minutes, then remove.
  4. Grease half the moulds with a little more melted butter and spoon in the remaining mixture. Bake as before for 12-13 minutes. Cool and remove. Serve when completely cold, dusted with a little icing sugar and matcha powder.

Tip: For an indulgent treat, drizzle the madeleines with melted dark chocolate.
