You may have been hearing about the superfood matcha which is making appearances in recipes ranging from smoothies to cakes to waffles. It’s benefits give you antioxidants, a higher metabolism, and make you feel more focused (so everything you need in college).
I jumped on board and started putting matcha in my breakfast smoothie instead of my usual cup of coffee and felt just as refreshed. I have been using this super ingredient in other recipes so keep reading to see how I made a matcha cake the college way- in a mug.
