Charcoal Ogura Cake

Yummy Bakes | 3:11 PM |
Instead of a green tea ogura I baked a charcoal ogura cake because I could find my green tea power so might as well utilise my charcoal powder before it expires.  Hmm .... what a clumsy week!

Recipe adapted from Min's Blog
Green tea powder1tbsp mix with 20ml hot water and stir well
Corn oil 45g
Milk 60ml
Salt 1/4tsp
Egg yolk 100 g Whole egg 1
Super fine flour 65 g
Egg white 200g
Castor sugar 65g
Tartar powder 1/2tsp
For A:
  1. Beat together corn oil, milk, green tea paste, salt, egg yolk and whole egg till frothy.
  2. Sift in super fine flour and mix well, put aside.
For B:
  1. Using electric mixer, beat egg white with tartar powder and castor sugar till soft peak.
  2. Using spatula, mix together A and B till combine, pour into a 7" square baking pan (lined with baking sheet at the bottom), steam-bake in oven at 160'C for 60 minutes.
  3. Invert the cake after baking and let it cool before serving.



  1. I want to make this but haven't got guts to try it yet. How is the taste of charcoal ?
