You might have heard of matcha green tea before, but a matcha cake recipe might seem more obscure. Instead of brewing leaves as a tea, which is known for its high levels of antioxidants and energy-boosting properties, this dessert incorporates matcha powder. The Matcha Cake with Black Sesame Buttercream Frosting is from the blog My Name is Yeh.

The tiered confection combines the green tea variety with black sesame in "that dark but whimsical way." This matcha cake recipe can be used to make cakes in a range of sizes using cake rings. The food blogger used Aiya cooking-grade matcha as well as ingredients like buttermilk, toasted black sesame seeds. The cake also appears to be topped with regular sprinkles.
