In a large mixing bowl, combine together eggs, milk, flour, matcha green tea powder, butter, sugar, and baking powder. With a paddle attachment on, beat on medium speed for 4-5 minutes.
Grease a non-stick pancake pan with some oil or cooking spray and heat up over medium heat. Pour in about ½ cup of the batter and cook for 1 minute. Carefully flip and continue to cook for another 20-30 seconds. Remove from the pan and repeat the process with the remaining batter.
Spread some of the whipped cream over one crepe and top with the next one. Repeat the process until you have used all the whipped cream. Tightly wrap crepes with a large piece of plastic foil and freeze for one hour.
After about an hour (or until crepes are firm enough), remove from the freezer and cut off the four sides to create a square cake. Cut into four pieces and refrigerate for another 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a double boiler or a microwave. Remove cakes from the refrigerator and place on a wire rack. Top with the melted chocolate and refrigerate until completely firm.
Optionally, sprinkle with some more matcha powder and serve.
These elegant matcha crepe cakes are made of nine layers of tender matcha crepes, filled with fluffy whipped cream, and then topped with chocolate for some extra firmness and delicious flavor.
The recipe itself is really not too complicated to prepare but it does require some time because the cake will have to go to the freezer for about an hour before cutting into squares. It is absolutely necessary to firm up the crepes and whipped cream or else it won't be possible to slice them and create equal pieces afterward.
For this recipe, I have decided to use dark chocolate and boost even more the nutritional values of this recipe. However, you can use your favorite milk chocolate or even white chocolate for different-looking cakes.
Finally, sprinkle everything with some more matcha powder or even decorate with some edible golden leaves for an absolutely gorgeous dessert everyone will love!

Try making your own whipped cream with some heavy cream, granulated sugar, rum or vanilla extract and make this recipe even more fun. Simply combine about 1 cup of the heavy cream with ¼ cup of granulated sugar, and one teaspoon of your favorite extract and beat well with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Use instead of your regular, store-bought whipped cream.
