Green Tea Cake with Black Sesame Cream

This is basically a sponge cake with finely ground green tea leaves incorporated in the batter. I love the aroma of the green tea in this cake, and as the recipe uses neither butter nor oil, it seemed a little too healthy for me. So I whipped some cream and folded in a black sesame paste that I made by grinding some toasted black sesame using a mortar and pestle, and then mixing some butter and icing sugar into it. This cake is light and subtly sweet with a toasty flavour.

Hi Amanda! Thanks for visiting. Sorry but I don't have the recipe as it came from a book I borrowed from the library :)
