Kyushu (Matcha Olive Oil Cake)
A tasty trip to Japan
Take your tastebuds on a journey to Japan with the Kyushu Olive Oil Cake. It’s tasty, very moist, and has a bold but balanced flavor.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
The Kyushu Loaf is moist and soft and absolutely sublime. Made with real matcha from Kyushu, Japan, it’s a well-crafted delight. The matcha flavor is prominent, never overwhelmed by the sugar or olive oil, which is how you know it doesn’t skimp on quality.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
The Kyushu Loaf is not overly sweet, making it the perfect dessert to an elaborate and special dinner, where rich food is served. Pair it with a Merlot, and you have yourself the best meal-ender.
Of course, you don’t have to wait for a nice dinner with all your friends to enjoy this cake. The Kyushu Loaf is incredible on its own, and doesn’t need any icing or powdered sugar. Have it for merienda, with a nice cup of tea—it’ll definitely hit the spot.
Keep olive oil cakes in an airtight container, either at room temperature or in the refrigerator. It will last for about 7 days at room temperature, and around 16 days in the refrigerator.
