"Soft and spongy green tea cake - full of flavor, and not too sweet. This recipe has been widely enjoyed by family and friends, and I reap the side benefit of having the whole kitchen filled with the blissful aroma of green tea every time I make this. This can also be made into 12 cupcakes."

I did as some of the reviews suggested and halted the sugar amount, and the cake wasn’t too sweet. The problem I had was the cake being too dry.

I put half the sugar that you had. Your amount of sugar was the amount of flour which meant that it was too sweet.

Quick, easy, and tasty! I swapped almond milk for the water, added 1/4 teaspoon of lemon extracted, and about 1/3 more matcha power to boast the flavor. Love it! No need for frosting or anything...
