This quick & easy Matcha Sheet Cake recipe is a real winner! The soft, moist cake is topped with fluffy, creamy frosting, making it the dream cake for matcha lovers.
I am a huge fan of sheet cakes for so many reasons: they are super easy to make, always taste amazing, and are a simple way to please a crowd. So when Snowflake wanted to create something together, I immediately thought of making a sheet cake with one of their yummy Creations Cake Kits!
Matcha is such an amazing flavour so I thought it would make a fun and yummy sheet cake. Matcha is also packed full of health benefits such as:
- High in antioxidants (including the powerful EGCg)
- Boosts metabolism
- Rich in fibre and vitamins
- Enhances mood
- Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar
How To Make This Easy Sheet Cake
Sheet cakes are so easy to make and this one is no exception! To make this Matcha Sheet Cake all you have to do is:
- Whisk together the eggs, oil, milk, and vanilla essence in a mixing bowl.
- Add in the Snowflake Creations Vanilla Cake Mix and matcha powder.
- Mix this all together until just combined and pour it into a lined sheet cake pan.
- The cake then bakes for about 30 minutes and then all you have to do is make the yummy frosting!
Making the dreamy Matcha Cream Cheese Frosting is just as easy! All you have to do is:
- With a mixer, cream together the soft butter and cream cheese until fluffy and lighter in colour.
- Then add the Snowflake Creations Vanilla Icing Mix and the matcha powder.
- Mix together until well combined and then spread over the cooled cake.

- Mix together until just combined.

Matcha Cream Cheese Frosting
- With a mixer, cream the butter and cream cheese together until fluffy and lighter in colour.
- Add the Snowflake Creations Vanilla Icing Mix and matcha powder. Adjust the amount of matcha powder according to your preference.
- Mix together and spread over the cake once it has cooled completely.
- Cut into squares and enjoy!
- Always allow the cake to cool completely before frosting it otherwise the frosting could melt off the cake.
- To freeze the cake, cut the cake into 8-12 squares before frosting and freeze individually. You can then simply pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds and top them with a little frosting.
- Do not overmix the cake batter. Overmixing will result in a tougher and less fluffy sheet cake. A few small lumps in the batter are fine.
