There are two kinds of people in this world, those who love green tea and those who don’t want it near them.

Love it or hate it, there is no denying its benefits.

Now imagine having it as a main ingredient in a very delicious nicely textured dessert. If you are living in Japan you have probably come across it, maybe even bought it just to try something new.


It’s called the Green tea cake roll, it’s basically a normal Swiss roll but with a kick of green tea, matcha to be exact. Matcha is Japanese green tea finely grounded into powder. You probably already have this in your kitchen if you’re a green tea fan.

Some flour, a bit of baking powder, obviously some matcha powder, sugar, milk and eggs for a soft texture and a pinch of salt is all you need to make the roll. The inner creamy part that adds the sweet flavor is only a two ingredient mix, powdered sugar and heavy cream.


Of course, like any dessert there are infinite ways of preparation. Some healthier than others, but the taste depends on your sweet tooth and how much of a kick of green tea you want in your dessert.

It’s enough to type “green tea cake roll” in the all mighty Google to have a never ending list of recipes. Original Japanese recipes are recommended. You might have to do some digging, but it’ll be worth it.
