Green Matcha Bundt Cake


A little while back, Bakerella had this recipe on her blog and I wanted to try it..... I had to find the Matcha green tea powder first. I may have used a little too much for the color, but the taste was great........ I made a lime glaze and that gave it just the right tang. If you want a great blog to drool over check her out!!! Her cake looks a lot better than mine but it still disappeared well enough!!!

Interesting. Strange color. What does it taste like? Are you feeling better? How is your weather? We had snow again this week. Not a lot but, for Texas any is something. Are you loving the Olympics? Everytime I see photos of different things I think of you. I would love to come up & visit sometime. HUGS! Charlene

Hi Margaret...
I'm positive that this cake was yummy, but my taste buds can't get past the "green" cake. Had a friend who made guacamole deviled eggs once, and I decided then and there that "I don't like green eggs..." and I love guac! (Dr. Seuss and me!)
Go figure. lol Hope you're feeling better, my friend.
xoxo

A St. Paddy's Day perfect cake!!!!! You're on time ;)
I make it black and white (I mean natural and + cocoa), it's hubby's favorite cake! Generally I don't like to add colors to food, but this looks soo cheerful! I might try!
