Matcha cheesecake

This creamy matcha cheesecake is full of green tea flavor!

The easy cheesecake crust is made with just butter, graham cracker crumbs and salt!

Step 1: Make the crust

Use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese until completely smooth.

Step 2: Beat the cream cheese

Whisk together the sugar, matcha powder, flour and salt to prevent any clumping in the batter.

Step 3: Whisk together the sugar and matcha powder

Mix until fully incorporated.

Step 4: Add the matcha sugar to the cream cheese

Mix until the cheesecake batter is completely smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary.

Step 5: Add sour cream, vanilla and lemon juice

Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Make sure not to overmix!

Step 6: Mix in the eggs

Bake until the edges are set. The center will still be quite wobbly.

Step 6: Pour the batter into the crust

Let the cheesecake come to room temperature. Then chill in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours before releasing from the springform pan.

Step 7: Chill and enjoy!
