Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Separate the egg whites from yolks into two large bowls.
  2. Whisk sugar, honey, vanilla, green tea powder, and salt into egg yolks until everything is mixed together.
  3. Place bowl in a large pan of hot water.
  4. With an electric mixer, beat about 5 minutes on medium-high speed until pale yellow and doubled in volume.
  5. Gently fold in flour.
  6. In the large bowl, beat egg whites in electric mixer on a low speed 1 minute, increasing speed to medium-high until eggs are foamy.
  7. When the eggs are foamy, sprinkle in one tablespoon of sugar and cream of tartar.
  8. Beat until the egg mixture is stiff.
  9. Using a spatula, fold the egg whites gently so the bubbles in eggs are not destroyed.

  12. Grease the parchment.
  13. Pour batter into pan.

  16. Run a small knife between edge of cake and pan. Remove from pan carefully.
  17. Pull off parchment and cool completely.
