Green tea pound cake

 I spend most of my time in the kitchen ^^, lucky me that my new kitchen have a lot of space and I can do almost everything here.


Reading, drawing, cooking, baking or even having a small party I think that I can sleep here too, haha. This year I have a lot of party with my friends and family (start learning violin again gives me a chance to know a lot people ^^). 
It's fun but sometimes it drains my energy as we spent time eating, talking and too much laughing. I think about spending my time peacefully with myself, and you can guess what I want to do. Yes, baking something easy and delicious then eating it. Simple pound cake is great but with a touch of bitterness and great fragrance from green tea and sweetness from white chocolate this cake can give me happy time. White chocolate gives this cake good texture and mellow sweetness, lovely!
With great keeping quality you can pack it and give someone you love as a gift. Great with tea or coffee. Now I can sit and relax with delicious tea and yummy cake, sometimes you need slow, slow life ^^ .
Ps. Sweetened  boiled red beans is optional.

  1. Love the packaging you used in the last photo, where did you get it? I love pound cakes because they are so easy to make (and even easier to go down my stomach haha) Your matcha pound cake looks delicious! Love the addition of red beans!
