I am always looking for recipes which are easy to make, require few ingredients and taste very good. This is one of those recipes. Baking generally takes lots of precise measurements and steps, but this recipe for green tea cake is so simple, any body can bake this cake. My kids (3 and 5 yr old) help me with this and the cake finishes before even it gets a chance to cool down. This recipe can be easily doubled. Just double each ingredient.
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cooking oil (canola ,sunflower oil etc)
1/2 cup milk
1 Table spoon and 1 tea spoon matcha green tea powder

Sift flour,green tea powder and baking pan using a fine mesh sieve and add to the mixing bowl.
Add milk and mix a little more so everything is combined bowl, don’t over mix.
Add mixture to the prepared cake pan.
Bake in the oven in middle rack for about 27 minutes or till the tooth pick comes out clean.
Take out the cake pan.
Cool the cake for s few minutes ,before transferring it to a serving plate.
My family enjoys it warm , but it is delicious served cold as well.
