What better way to wrap up your evening meal than with a delicious cross between sponge cake, tiramisu, opera cake and KitKat. This matcha green tea infused sponge cake comes sandwiched with layers of kitkat cream and is topped with matcha cream. Serve this cake to your family and friends after dinner, and see if they can guess the secret ingredient.


• 3-4 kitkats
• 100g mascarpone
• 1 egg yolk
• 3 tbsp honey
• 100ml cream
• 200g sponge cake
• 2 tsp matcha green tea
• 1 tsp soy sauce

How To Prepare

  1. In a bowl, mix together the mascarpone, egg yolk and honey. Crush up your KitKats and leave to one side.

  2. In a separate bowl whip 50ml of the cream until it forms soft peaks, then fold into the mascarpone mixture along with the crushed KitKats. Leave to chill in the fridge.

  3. Mix together the matcha green tea, soy sauce and 100ml of warm water. Pour into a large pan tray and put to one side.

  4. Cut your sponge cake into slices about a finger width high, then dip into the matcha mixture. Next, line your moulds with cling film and leave to one side.

  5. Place the sponge in the bottom of the mould, then cover with a layer of cream. Repeat, then top with a final layer of cream and leave to firm up in the refrigerator.

  6. In the meantime, whip the remaining 50ml of cream together with a sprinkle of matcha and pipe on top to decorate. If your piping work is not even, you can also use an extra sprinkle of matcha to disguise any rough edges. Enjoy.
