Chocolate Cake

A little confession: baking is not my favorite form of cooking at all. But I do so often crave a slice of a good chocolate cake to go along with a cup of coffee or tea, and I am pretty picky about what constitutes a good cake 🙂 At a time when the craving hit, and the city was sleeping due to snow, I had no choice but to bake a loaf. I am so happy that I ended up with an easy recipe that I absolutely love. This cake is bursting with rich cocoa flavor, it is not dry nor gooey, and the chocolate topping is the best thing in the world. The recipe is below:

Vegan Matcha Zebra Cheesecake

I am definitely a tea person, and of all the varieties, matcha has a special place in my heart. One reason, of course, is that it is super high in anti-oxidants. Actually it is much more potent than regular green tea. But another, perhaps more important, reason is it’s smooth and delicious flavor. Lastly, that pretty vibrant green definitely needs a mention. This all makes it a great ingredient, not only for drinks, but for desserts!

Merging my love of the matcha tea with that of vegan cheesecakes, I set out to make this vanilla matcha zebra cheesecake. I used the Carrington Farms Matcha Tea Powder and I couldn’t be happier with the result (as expected with my experience with other Carrington Farms products so far). The dessert turned out creamy but light, absolutely delicious and flavorful, and very pretty 🙂

See below for the full recipe and a video description of the zebra layering.
