What We Love the Most: Matcha Cake
Matcha is considered as a powerhouse of antioxidants, helps in lowering cholesterol and blood sugar levels, and also calms your body and mind. If you’re a fan of mactha, you’ll be enchanted by this nokcha, or green tea, cake. This simple, moist cake is subtly sweet, light and velvety, so it may be an appropriate treat for someone with diabetes or another health condition in which blood sugar must be managed. Of course, if there’s no medical reason for you not to indulge your sweet tooth. Beware! If you’re caffeine sensitive, having this as dinner desert might keep you up at night, just jokingMatcha contains roughly 25mg of caffeine, which is approximately one-fifth the caffeine of a cup of brewed coffee from Starbucks.
