GATEAU DE VOYAGE

“Gateau de Voyage ” means “Travel Cake” . Similar to a pound cake…made to wrap up like a loaf. Usually marbled…this recipe called for chocolate and matcha . Here is how it looks in the book…..

My chocolate/matcha ratio didn’t seem the same, even though they have you make separate recipes, so the amount should be the same. I am not a big matcha fan. So even though my cake turned out heavy on the chocolate side….I still found the matcha a little overpowering. Here’s mine…

The cake was moist and rich, so with ice cream it was perfect, What makes this stand out as a “French cake” is ….as per usual… the shear amount of eggs and butter used ! 2 1/2 sticks of butter, and 4 large eggs. Per loaf. Matcha lovers loved this cake, and the dark chocolate helped redeem it for the rest of us.
