Keto Matcha Green Tea Mug Cake

0 comments

This matcha green tea cake is so fluffy and has a strong green tea flavour; it has a slightly sweet taste as the matcha flavour shines and helps to balance out the sweetness of the cake. Adding some chocolate chips on top of this matcha cake gives the flavour a sweet kick. It has a beautiful green colour which will charm you before you even taste it.

I like the simplicity of this recipe, adding a few ingredients together, whisking, then microwave for 2 minutes, and there you are. This beautiful, matcha green tea mug cake is healthy and delicious.
