    • ½ tsp. salt
    • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 ¼ cups sugar
    • 3 egg whites

    Matcha filling

    • 1 tbsp. Elan Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder 
    • 1 ¼ cup sugar
    • ¼ cup sweetened condensed milk
    • 1 cup whipping cream
    • 2 cups milk



    • 1 ½ cup whipping cream
    • 3 tbsp. sugar 




    • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Spray two 8-inch square pans with cooking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper. 
    • In a small bowl, mix all dry ingredients. 
    • In a larger bowl, whisk the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Blend in the eggs and vanilla.
    • Sift the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir. 
    • Add sour cream and oil and stir gently until fully incorporated. 
    • Divide the batter into the two pans and bake for 30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out mostly clean.
    • Let the cakes cool in the pans before lifting them out. 


    • For the matcha filling, combine all ingredients in a pot and slowly bring to a boil. Stir until thickened. 
    • Cool completely before using on the cake. 


    • For the frosting, whip cream and sugar at low speed until texture is light with soft peaks. 


    • To assemble, slice cake layers to create four layers. 
    • Cover and stack cake layers with whipped cream and the matcha filling, making sure the latter is in the middle layer. 
    • Top the cake with another layer of cream and filling. 
    • Decorate with melted chocolate, leftover cream, fruits, or matcha powder. 
    • Refrigerate before serving.
