Green Tea Chocolate Chip Cake

I bought green tea powder some time ago but never got to baking green tea cake. Here's my own concoction of green tea cake with my all time favourite of chocolate chips. Hope you can enjoy it as much as I do.

2 egg yolks
10g sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
2 egg whites
50g sugar
55g cake flour (sifted)
35g melted butter
3/4 tbsp green tea powder
30g chocolate chips

Whip egg yolks, sugar and vanilla essence till smooth and creamy. In a separate bowl, whip egg whites till soft peaks form then add sugar and continue whipping. Fold this mixture into the egg yolk mixture. Sieve in flour and mix well with spatula. Add in green tea powder and combine well. Pour in melted butter. Pour into a 18-20cm cake pan and throw in chocolate chips randomly. Bake at 190 deg C for about 20min.

The green tea powder can be found at Phoon Huat. Thats the place i always go for my baking stuff :) very cheap about $1-$2 for a small bottle.

I also got my green tea powder from Phoon Huat but I think I paid about $2.50 for a small bottle (20g).

I love the contrast between the brown exterior and green interior (it would be fun to cut the cake in front of unsuspecting friends), and the little chocolate dots.
