Chocolate Matcha Mint Cake

When we think of sponge cake, we usually think of sweet, do you feel the same way?

Some of you may have seen a cake with carrots or zucchini, but have you ever baked a cake with nettles?

I can definitely recommend you to try it once, in terms of taste it is in no way inferior to an ordinary one. No wonder, because most plants are rather neutral in taste and can therefore be used sweet and salty.

Today I have a recipe for you that combines chocolate and mint with the vitamin bombs nettle and matchatto with mint .

The taste is reminiscent of a well-known candy.

You need:

  • nettle tips
  • peppermint tips
  • 300g butter or margarine
  • 370g flour
  • 20g cocoa
  • 280g of sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 70g milk
  • 5 eggs (for a vegan version simply leave out the eggs and use 300g milk instead)
  • powdered sugar
  • Matchatto with mint oil
  • Water


First you chop the nettle and mint leaves, either with the food processor or simply chop them up a little finely with a knife.

Then add butter, eggs, sugar, flour, salt, baking powder, milk and cocoa and mix everything to a smooth dough. And put it in a greased loaf pan.

Then your cake can bake in the oven at 180 degrees for about 1 hour. The vegan version takes a little longer.

After it has cooled, release it from the mold. Now comes the best part, the glaze.

In a small bowl, mix powdered sugar with a little water to make a conventional icing. Be careful not to add too much water, otherwise the glaze will be too thin.

Now mix 1 teaspoon of matchatto powder with mint into your glaze, which will now have a bright green color.

After hardening, you can sprinkle your cake with chocolate sprinkles.

Your herb witch Tina wishes you every success.
