A dense, chocolatey bundt to make your tastebuds sing.
It’s officially springtime, and that means lots of parties and get-togethers in the sunshine. People are ready to shake off the indoors of the winter and get outside to have fun.
At these spring events, many guests decide to bring a bottle of wine. But a better idea is to bring along a delectable dessert—preferably a healthy one.
There’s always the classic bundt cake, but if you don’t want your friends to yawn in your face, why not put a little update on it? By incorporating matcha green tea powder, you will have a hit. Seriously.
More dense than the run-of-the-mill bundt cake, this chocolate matcha version is slightly chewy and texturally interesting, with a pop of chocolate adding to the mix.
This matcha dessert recipe will give your metabolism a boost, and will also increase concentration and focus. It will calm the mind and relax the body, and also acts as an immunity increaser. An antioxidant powerhouse, matcha tea contains more antioxidants than any other superfood.
Besides all this, matcha tea powder also helps prevent disease, lowering cholesterol and blood sugar.
Plus, this is yummy. It’s a CAKE after all!
