Our wood fired green tea and raspberry load is the ideal after dinner treat to cook in the leftover residual heat. The matcha green tea powder gives the loaf a lovely aromatic flavour and the raspberries add a delicious sweetness.
- 200g plain flour
- 5tbsp matcha green tea powder
- 2tsp baking powder
- 170g caster sugar
- 170g unsalted butter, softened
- 4 medium eggs, room temperature
- 60g fresh raspberries
Fire up your wood fired oven to it’s optimum temperature and allow time for it to cool to 160-180°C. Whilst your oven is cooling, line a high heat, 2lb loaf tin with baking paper, leaving some extra overhanging all the edges to make the loaf easier to remove later. Pop to one side while you mix your ingredients.
Stir together the flour, matcha powder and baking powder in a large bowl. Next, add the sugar, butter and eggs and mix until smooth.
Finally, carefully fold in the raspberries, then pour the batter into the prepared tin.
Now you can put your loaf into your wood fired oven, place the door in place and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Once cooked, remove from your oven and allow to cool before slicing. To serve, add a big dollop of crème fraîche. Now all that’s left is to enjoy!
