Raspberry Matcha Cake
 
I’m so excited to share this matcha roll cake recipe with you all! Don’t you just love the colors? I can’t think of a more spring-like cake!
 
Ever since I traveled to Japan two years ago, I’ve become enamored with matcha. We saw it (quite literally) everywhere on our trip and in every form imaginable. If you’re unfamiliar with the ingredient, matcha is the powder form of green tea leaves, which are grown in the shade. 
 
This unique growing method produces a vibrantly green tea that is less bitter and more sweet in flavor. Matcha has a very complex flavor that lends itself well to so many flavor pairings, particularly fruit.
