Green Tea Ogura Cake

I came cross this Ogura Cake recipe from MiMi Bakery House and would like to attempt using Green Tea powder. The only mistake I did was I used 8 inch square baking pan instead of 7 inch so the cake turned out not as high as I expected. However, the texture was good and the pattern came out pretty. I would like to try with other flavours such as Milo or Coffee as in original recipe.

Modified for my easy reference


5 egg yolks
1 whole egg
pinch of salt
60g milk
50g canola oil
70g cake flour

5 egg white
80g sugar
1/2 tsp cornflour

4tsp of green tea powder with 20g of water


1. In a mixing bowl, hand whisk egg yolk, whole egg, salt, milk and oil till well combined.
2. Fold in flour and blend well.
3. Whisk egg white till foamy, add cornflour and gradually add sugar. Use high speed beat till stiff peak.
4. Mix 1/3 of the egg whites into the batter till well combined and gently fold in the rest of the egg white into the batter till well combined.
5. Pour 2/3 of the batter into 7 inch baking pan. Add  green tea mixture to the balance 1/3 of the batter and mix well.
6. Pour green tea batter on top and use a chopstick to do some swirl around. Gently tap the baking pan to release trapped bubbles.
7. Steam bake in preheated oven at 160 Deg C for 60 mins.
8. Remove from oven and invert the cake to cool down.
9. Gently remove cake from baking pan and let it cool upside down on the cooling rack. Cut the cake after completely cool down.
