  • Beat sugar and egg whites together in a bowl using an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Add egg yolk and mix well. Stir grapeseed oil, honey, and milk into egg mixture.

  • Sift flour and green tea powder 2 times into a bowl; mix into egg mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Olive oil or vegetable oil can be substituted for the grapeseed, if desired.

I added 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoons of baking soda. It was divine! I couldn't get enough of it. Light but very tasty. Read More

This was nice but for me the cooking time was too long. We took it out 5 minutes early and the bread was good but a little dry. Nice recipe. Read More
