Colorful cake with matcha tea, turmeric and cocoa.
I'm sure most of you know a two-colored lady with a nice name Zebra. The idea for a colorful grandmother was created on the basis of this recipe. I just named the new one Tricolor because there is no yellow, green, and dark striped zebra.
I invite you for a tasty three-color Easter cupcake. Let these spring colors bring a lot of joy to your kitchen.
400 g cake flour type 450 It's the one!
250g of sugar
5 "L" eggs
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons of baking powder
250 ml of oil
250 ml sparkling water (can be plain)
1.5 teaspoons of matcha tea
1.5 tsp black cocoa (can be dark)
1 teaspoon vanilla pudding powder
0.5 teaspoon turmeric powder
100 g powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
about 10 ml of lemon juice
chocolate eggs to decorate
Mix flour with baking powder and sift through a sieve.
Separate the whites from the yolks. Beat egg whites with a pinch of salt, at the end of whipping, gradually add sugar. When we get a shiny foam, we do not stop whipping and add one yolk at a time.
We replace the robot's stirrer with a wooden or silicone spoon. Now we begin to add flour to the dough in 3 - 4 turns, alternating with oil and water. Stir very gently after adding each portion of the set, just to combine the ingredients.
Divide the dough into 3 equal portions and dye each in a different color. I recommend sifting the "dyes" through a sieve, evenly over the surface of the cake. This makes it easier and faster to combine colorful additives with the basic dough. We add turmeric and vanilla pudding to the yellow cake, matcha to the green tea, and dark cocoa. Mix the dough very gently with colored powders.
Smear the mold for the cake with butter and sprinkle with coarse flour or breadcrumbs. We heat the oven to 160°C.
Put 2 - 3 tablespoons of yellow dough in the middle of the mold, a portion of dark dough on top, and green dough at the end. Repeat this operation (in order of colors at your discretion) until the entire dough is used up.
Bake the cake for 20 minutes at 160°C, then increase the temperature to 180°C and bake for another 30 - 40 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Carefully remove the baked cake from the mold and cool on a wire rack. When cooled, pour icing or chocolate, I suggest yellow icing with turmeric.
Mix powdered sugar thoroughly with turmeric, add lemon juice, mix and pour over cooled cake. We can decorate the cake with chocolate eggs and grated chocolate.
