Ingredients

  • 1 large whole egg
  • 50 g avocado oil (or neutral vegetable oil) or melted unsalted butter
  • 50 g granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon high-quality matcha powder sifted
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt
  • 50 g all-purpose flour

Cheesecake filling:

  • 85 g cream cheese softened at room temperature
  • 20 g granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk room temperature

Instructions

Make the matcha brownie batter:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F/177°C.
  • Line the bottom of a 8" by 4" loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the egg, oil, sugar, matcha, vanilla, and salt.
  • With a spatula, fold the flour into the egg mixture. Be careful not to overmix. Set aside.

Make cheesecake filling:

  • In a stand mixer bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, beat together cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and egg yolk until smooth and creamy on low speed.

Assemble:

  • Scoop the matcha brownie batter into the bottom of the loaf pan. Spread the layer evenly with a spatula. Set aside 2 tablespoons of batter for the top.
  • Add the cheesecake filling on top of the matcha brownie batter.
  • Scrape the remaining 2 tablespoon of matcha brownie batter over top of the cheesecake filling.
  • Run a knife through the batter to create a swirl through the cheesecake and brownie mixture.
  • Tap the loaf pan once or twice to release any trapped air bubbles.
  • Bake at 350°F/177°C for 25-28 mins, until set in the middle, or a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool on a cooling rack.
  • Let completely cool before slicing into squares. Dust with additional matcha powder if you like.
  • Place into a container for up to 1 day at room temperature, or in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. The tops will be appear a little moist if covered, but this is OK. If you prefer, you can dust with matcha before serving.

Notes

Recipe can be doubled to fit into a 8" x 8" baking pan. Bake for 28-30 minutes, until set.
