Matcha Strawberry Shortcake

Don’t we all love a light and fluffy cake that is light on the palate? If that’s that you like, i have the perfect recipe for you! As much as i bake, i almost never eat my own bakes except for a taste test, but i could chow down a slice of this which pretty much says a lot about the cake! 😀

i would say, the main ingredient of this cake will be the matcha powder; so please use a decent matcha powder that you could get your hands on! Remember, dodgy matcha gives you dodgy cake! i’m using O’Sulloc which i managed to snag a couple of bottles from korea and these are really good!
