Being Matcha obsessed, we are always on the lookout for creative and easy ways to use our Matcha. Matcha cookies, Matcha lattes, Matcha smoothies. Matcha everything, we always say! That’s how our quest led us to discover this simple yet delicious Matcha Mug Cake recipe by www.kirbiecravings.com. It is packed with the lovely Matcha flavour and is ready within minutes. Here’s the recipe:


  • 4 tbsp (30 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp  Tea Trunk Matcha
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp (12.5 g) granulated white sugar
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) nonfat milk
  • 1/2 tbsp (7.5 ml) olive oil


In a microwave-safe mug, add flour, matcha powder, baking powder and sugar. Whisk until evenly blended and no lumps remain. You want to make sure to break apart any matcha or flour lumps before adding the liquid.

Add in milk and oil. Mix with whisk until batter is smooth and uniform in color. Cook in the microwave at full power for about 1 minute. Let cake cool for a few minutes before eating.

Do you love the recipe as much as we do? Do try and let us know in the comment section below. Pro tip: Try making it with our  Cacao Matcha or Berry Matcha for a truly un‘Matcha’ed experience!
