Matcha Chiffon Cake(Green Tea Powder)

Usually I post my baking post in my the other blog but I think this post is unique because I used matcha (green tea powder ) to make this chiffon cake.I still have plenty of matcha powder that I brought home from my last trip to Malaysia,so I figured I should infused matcha(green tea powder)flavor into this chiffon cake.Beside the flavor I tweaked some of the ingredients:olive oil and cake flour.Most of the time I just used all purpose flour or regular corn or vegetable oil but this time I would like to tried with olive oil and combination of cake flour and all purpose flour..My new experiment of making this chiffon cake result is really beyond my expectation!!That mean great!! The texture of this chiffon cake is really soft and fluffy light like cotton..

1 cup cake flour,sifted
1/2 cup all purpose flour,sifted
1 tsp baking powder,sifted
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp matcha +3 tbsp water,dissolved
5 large eggs yolk
1/2 cup olive oil
3/4 cup milk

6 large white eggs
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp cream of tartar
Pre-heat oven to 325 degree F(or depend on your oven temperature)Prepare a 10"inch tube pan.
1) Sieve all the (A) ingredients in a large bowl until well combined
2) Mix ingredients(B) until well blended and then add in ingredient (A)beat and mix until smooth
3) Beat ingredients(C) in mixer on high speed until stiff peak. It should not fall out when you turn the mixing bowl over. Fold 1/3 of the egg whites into the egg yolks mixture(A+B) and continue to do so until egg whites is finish. Remember to FOLD in gently until well mixed.Do not mixed!!
4) Pour batter into a un-greased 10" tube pan and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or used a bamboo skewer to test the cake. Just insert the skewer into the center of the cake and it should comes out clean.
5) Invert cake and let it cool complete in the pan. When is cool, loosen the edge of the pan with knife and remove cake.
6) Cut the cake for 12 pieces or your desire size and serve with tea or coffee.

Honestly, never thought of a 'green-tea flavoured' chiffon. The more common ones I've tried are coffee, orange, lemon. Would like to try but not sure if it'll go down well with hubby's taste buds! Hmm, would give it a shot anyway. Thanks for the recipe!
