[Recipe] Matcha and Adzuki Red Bean Loaf Cake using Airfryer

July 24, 2021 0 Comments A+ a-

Since everyone's going to be at home for the next few weeks, here's another recipe for y'all!

Matcha always goes well with adzuki red beans, so let's bake one such loaf cake for tea time. It is moist and has slightly bitter tinges of matcha. Love it.

I made this cake using Craft Tea Fox's Barista Uji Matcha Powder. Air-flown from Uji Kyoto, these are 100% pure matcha so I don’t have to worry about additives like sugar or preservatives affecting my cake. I use this matcha powder for my own homemade Iced Matcha Latte with Honey too. Pure Hojicha powder is also available from Craft Tea Fox.

Matcha and Adzuki Red Bean Loaf Cake using Airfryer


▪️ 2 tbs matcha powder
▪️ 140g top flour/ cake flour
▪️ 1 tsp baking powder
▪️ 1/4 tsp salt

▪️ 60g oil
▪️ 120g sugar
▪️ 120g milk
▪️ 2 eggs
▪️ 1 tsp vanilla extract
▪️1 tin of ready-cooked adzuki beans (drained)

1) Preheat airfryer at 160 degrees C for 40 minutes.

2) Combine all (A) ingredients together. Sift and place them in a bowl.

3) In another bowl, cream oil and sugar together. Add the remaining (B) together and mix well.

4) Add (B) into (A). Mix well and pour into a baking pan lined with baking paper. Cover with aluminium foil and poke some holes.

Tips: The batter is supposed to be quite runny. Don't worry.

5) Bake in airfryer at 160 degrees C for 40 minutes.

6) Remove the foil. Check that the cake is fully baked using a toothpick. If it doesn't come out clean, continue baking for another 5 minutes.
