All of a sudden, I craved for matcha flavored fluffy, cottony soft, fine texture, light & heavenly cheesecake. Without thinking much, I bake one by adapting the popular Japanese Cheesecake (aka sponge cheesecake or cheese sponge cake). Thus, here is my version of delicious Matcha Japanese Cheesecake that not only known for its deliciousness but also packed with awesome health benefits from the matcha powder.
Matcha has skyrocketed in popularity lately, with matcha shots, lattes, teas and even desserts appearing everywhere from health stores to coffee shops. Like green tea, matcha comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. However, it is grown differently and has a unique nutrient profile.
Amongst its many health benefits, matcha…
Is packed with antioxidants including the powerful EGCg
Boosts metabolism and burns calories
Detoxifies effectively and naturally
Calms the mind and relaxes the body
Is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins
Enhances mood and aids in concentration
Provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium

Matcha tea is an easy and simple way to add powerful health benefits to your everyday diet.

If you have baked the Japanese Cheesecake with the recipe I shared previously and got it done successfully, this Matcha Green Tea version is just a slight modification from the original recipe; that is, by substituting part of the flour with matcha powder. In case you are new to this 2-part batter recipe, it is important to read through the recipe and the notes given, not forgetting to watch the video repeatedly.
