Recipe: Matcha Yogurt Fruit Cake

Christmas is just a few days away! Aren't you excited? :D 

Here I am sharing yet another matcha related recipe. Hahaha! Are you sick of it yet? :P 

Sorry, if you aren't a fan of matcha. Because you're missing one of the best thing on earth! :D 

Thought of baking this cake to replace to usual Christmas fruit cake because I tried to be funny, I wanted to bake something more festive looking and healthier for the family! ^^ 

Added some shredded dried coconut (no icing sugar please!) for a snowy look. Then finish with some Christmas decoration! It doesn't look that bad after all eh? :D

I baked this cake with my pinky Wiltshire removable pan! A gift from Mcpherson's

1 1/2 cups greek yogurt
2/3 cup coconut oil (other types of oil works as well)
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups plain flour + 1 tbsp matcha powder
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Fresh fruits of your choice
Dried shredded coconut 

1. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Grease a 9-inch removable pan lightly .
2. Whisk together the yogurt, coconut oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Sieve  the flour, matcha powder, baking powder, and salt, gently fold into the liquid batter. Mix well. 
3. Pour the batter into the cake pan. Lay the fruits on top of the cake batter. Bake for 60 minutes or when a tester comes out clean. Transfer the cake onto a cooling rack and let it cool for 10 minutes before removing it from the pan. 
Decorate with some shredded coconut for a more christmassy feel! ^^
Baked this for a Christmas gathering with Mr Tan's family. :)
Pleasure to have everyone liking the cake and commented that they like it that there are lots of fruits and it isn't too sweet! ^^

Recently I've been having much fun with my selfie stick from Thailand. 

Hahaha! :P
