  • 2 cups oat flour 
  • 1 cup almond or hazelnut flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 big lemon (zest & juice)
  • 1/2 cup oat milk
  • 3 T Ghee
  • 2 tsp Shakti Matcha Powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • a pinch of salt


  • 2 T Honey
  • Zest & juice of one lemon
  • 1 tsp Shakti Matcha Powder
  • 2/3 cup of plant based or natural greek yoghurt


  1. Prepare the Batter:

    • In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs and brown sugar. Use a whisk or an electric mixer to ensure a smooth blend.
    • Add the fresh lemon juice and zest for that zingy citrus flavour.
    • Introduce the oat milk, Ghee (clarified butter), and Shakti Matcha powder. Mix vigorously to incorporate all the ingredients.
  2. Incorporate Dry Ingredients:

    • Gradually add the flours (oat or all-purpose if not GF and almond or hazelnut flour for a nutty dimension) into the wet mixture.
    • Sprinkle in the baking powder, which will give your cake a delightful rise.
  3. Mix and Fold:

    • Gently fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. This is where you bring the batter together while retaining its lightness.
  4. Preheat the Oven:

    • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Allow it to reach the desired temperature before placing your cake inside.
  5. Baking Time:

    • Transfer the batter into a prepared cake pan, ensuring it's evenly distributed.
    • Slide the pan into the preheated oven and set your timer for around 40 minutes.
    • Keep an eye on the cake's progress, and use the toothpick test – insert a toothpick into the center, and if it comes out clean, your cake is ready.
  6. Prepare the Glaze:

    • Combine honey, lemon juice, zest, and Matcha powder in a bowl.
    • Add your selected yogurt for creaminess and depth.
  7. Whisk and Adjust:

    • Whisk vigorously to blend the ingredients into a velvety glaze.
    • Taste and adjust sweetness or tartness if needed.
  8. Drizzling Charm:

    • Once your Lemon Matcha Cake is cool, drizzle the glaze over it.
  9. Let Set and Enjoy:

    • Allow the glaze a moment to set before slicing.
