Green Tea and White Chocolate Mousse Cake

For my dear hubby’s birthday, I made a Green Tea and White Chocolate Mousse Cake. It felt kind of repetitive because I’ve made a Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake which in some sense it was kind of the same. I was going to make just Green Tea Mousse cake, but I couldn’t find a recipe that I like, and so I ended up using this one.

Cake Base

For the cake base I used a recipe given to me by a friend that they use for making Swiss Rolls, I cut the recipe in half so it can fit in my pan.

  • 2 eggs
  • 35g sugar
  • 25g oil
  • 25g milk
  • 35g cake flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp green tea powder

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Separate the egg white and the egg yolk.
  3. Mix the oil and the milk and whisk.
  4. Sift the cake flour and baking powder into the milk mixture, add in egg yolk and whisk until light and creamy. Mix in green tea powder.
  5. Use a mixer to beat the egg white, add in the cream of tartar, salt, and sugar slowly. Beat until stiff peaks.
  6. Fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg white 1/3 at a time.PIC_20140506_223846_0C2

Note: I put aluminum foil in my 8 inch square pan before I started baking for easier removal. This recipe should work with a 7 inch springform pan also.
