- Grease the pan with butter. Sprinkle bread flour onto the pan. Tap it with your hand to remove excess flour. Let it sit in a fridge. Soften it at room temperature beforehand. Prepare room-temperature eggs..
- Put matcha powder into a bowl while sifting with a tea strainer. Add cake flour and baking powder to the matcha powder. Stir it until evenly, and sift it; set aside. Preheat an oven to 190℃ / 374°F..
- Cream the butter until smooth. Add powdered sugar in 3 parts. (If the powdered sugar form lumps, you should sift it before adding.) Mix well each time. You can replace it with granulated sugar..
- Mix it with a hand mixer on low speed until white and fluffy (for 4 mins). Use a spatula to transfer the edge butter into the center and mix evenly. If you use a whisk, mix it 7-8 mins..
- Beat egg lightly until watery. You should warm the egg in hot water to 35℃ / 95 F if your room is cold. Add it to the butter in 4-5 parts. Mix thoroughly after each addition until creamy. I use a whisk to mix, but it's okay to use a hand mixer (low speed). I think using a whipper will emulsify more than using a mixer..
- Sift almond flour over the batter. Mix well with a spatula until smooth. It's okay to put it in without sifting. If you do so, please mix while crushing the lumps..
- Add dry ingredients while sifting again to prevent matcha lumps from forming. Fold it until powderiness disappears. Please scrape the edge flour off, and fold it into the batter..
- Put the batter into the pan without gaps, as possible. Flatten roughly, and give light shocks to remove gaps. Draw a line with butter. (omittable) If you draw a butter-line on the center, the cake will crack and be baked well. Bake it at 170℃ / 338 F for 30 mins, 160℃ / 320 F for 10 mins..
- Drop the pan to prevent the cake from shrinking. Let it cool for around 20 mins, and remove the cake while it's warm..
- Make syrup. Mix granulated sugar and hot water, stir well to melt the sugar thoroughly. Add brandy and mix roughly..
- Brush all sides with syrup (twice on each side). Double-wrap it with plastic wrap. Let it sit overnight at room temperature. (You should let it sit for at least 3 hours.) Done!.
The very first cake I learn to bake is a butter cake. In the US, it is more common to refer to a butter cake as a pound cake. This is an easy pound cake in matcha green tea flavor that follows a very simple process - sifting, creaming and stirring. Reduce mixer speed to low and add flour, beating until just incorporated. Add matcha to remaining batter and beat until fully incorporated.
