  • Combine eggs, 2 egg whites, and 3/4 cup egg whites in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until thick and doubled in volume. Add ingredients one at a time, beating 15 to 30 seconds after each addition, in the following order: sugar, honey, flour, baking powder, matcha, vanilla extract, butter, and buttermilk. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 to 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can make cupcakes instead of a cake, if desired.
