Matcha Pound Cake is a perfect cake to make if you are in the mood for a super moist cake with a caramelized crust and delicious matcha flavor to balance it all out. The combination of the dairy ingredients in this recipe can keep this cake moist for quite a few days and is the perfect bite to have after dinner. The matcha flavor helps cut through the sugar with a subtle flavor that balances the vanilla. Let me know in the comments below if you made this Matcha Pound Cake and how it went!
