Eggless Blue Matcha Chocolate Cavity Cake

I’ve always loved blue as a color and it’s endlessly fascinating to see the shades of blue that the butterfly pea flower reflects in the blue matcha tea. It seemed right to try a cavity cake with a blue matcha filling, and oh my, we couldn’t stop eating it. There’s something so calming and ethereal about blue in patisserie, and this cavity cake for 2 seems a perfect place for it.

Author's Notes

Makes one 3.5-inch square cake.

You can prepare the Blue Matcha Pastry Cream in the microwave. Place the whisked ingredients in a heat-proof bowl, and microwave for 30 seconds at a time, whisk, then repeat 3-4 times until it begins to thicken. Whisk well, strain, and cool, whisking now and then until a little thick, cool and pourable. Stir in the steeped matcha.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Lightly grease and line a 3.5-inch square baking tin.
Step 2
To prepare the Eggless Chocolate Sponge, whisk together Buttermilk (3.5 oz) , Oil (1 oz) , Granulated Sugar (1/3 cup) , Baking Soda (1/4 tsp) , Baking Powder (1/2 tsp) , 1/2 tsp of Lime Juice (1) , Salt (1 pinch) , Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (2 Tbsp) , and All-Purpose Flour (3/4 cup) in a bowl until smooth.
Step 3
Transfer batter to the prepared tin and bake for 30-35 minutes until the tester comes out clean. Cool completely, then level out.
Step 4
Meanwhile, prepare the Blue Matcha Pastry Cream. Steep Blue Matcha Powder (3/4 tsp) in Milk (1 Tbsp) .
Step 5
Whisk together Fresh Cream (3.5 oz) , Corn Flour (1 tsp) , Clarified Butter (2 Tbsp) , Agar-Agar Powder (3/4 tsp) , and Granulated Sugar (1 Tbsp) until smooth. Simmer over low heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly, until it begins to thicken slightly like a custard.
Step 6
Whisk in the steeped blue tea. Cool, whisking now and then until a little thick, cool and pourable.
Step 7
Once the cake is completely cool, take a 2-inch dessert ring, centralize it and gently push it all the way through. Gently remove the cutout and using a spatula/flat spoon, transfer the outer cake gently to your serving platter.
Step 8
Slice 2x1/2 cm layers from the cut-out for the base and top. Return one 2-inch layer to the cutout cavity to make the base of the cake.
Step 9
Fill the cavity with the cooled blue matcha pastry cream. Top with the reserved 2-inch layer, pressing gently into place.
Step 10
Put into the freezer for 1 1/2 hours for the filling to set or set in the fridge overnight.
Step 11
Once the filling is set, pipe with blue matcha mascarpone, edible flowers, and mint. Enjoy!
