  • 60 g vegan butter room temperature
  • ¾ cup cane sugar
  • 4 eggs room temperature
  • ¼ cup oat milk
  • 3 tbsp matcha powder
  • 1 ½ cups cake flour recommended to use cake flour for a light fluffy texture
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt kosher or sea salt; use half if using table salt


  • Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat softened butter until smooth and fluffy. Add sugar and beat very smooth and fluffy, approximately 5 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk your eggs. Whisk eggs into the butter sugar mixture at 1 tbsp at a time for a very soft cake.
  • In a separate large bowl, sift cake flour, salt and baking powder. Add ⅓ of the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and using a spatula, fold the dry into the wet but do not over fold. Repeat until you have folded in all the dry ingredients.
  • In another bowl, sift matcha powder into the oat milk. Whisk until smooth. Then pour ⅓ of the cake batter into the matcha liquid and mix until the batter is coloured green.
  • Into your original cake batter bowl, add dollops of the green cake batter. Using your spatula, fold from the bottom 3 times to get the marble effect. Then pour into a greased loaf pan. Smooth out the top of your cake.
  • Lower oven temperature to 340 degrees F and bake cake for 47-50 minutes. To check if it’s done, poke in the middle with a wooden chopstick and see if it comes out clean. Let it sit in the pan for 15 minutes before removing and serving
