To good friendship – with the Matcha “No Cheese” Cake

General, Recipes |

How long have you left it since last meeting up with your best friend, anyway?

These days keeping in touch with others seems to be easy. You send a WhatsApp, you follow other people’s lives on social media, everyone is always contactable and constantly being updated.

But what about in real life, away from the internet? Not those metered minutes that we spend on a quick lunch, but the profound and intense moments in time that really make our lives; How strong are our interpersonal relationships from that point of view?

If you think you might have been neglecting your friendships recently, right now you can start regaining the lost time!

Your offline friends miss you!

Invite your friends over for tea and cake and spend the best hours with them – whether that’s in the kitchen, on the balcony, in the garden or on a picnic blanket in the park.

Making that shared time even sweeter, in collaboration with IlkaEliseB, we have developed a recipe for a vegan Matcha “No Cheese” Cake.

A little inspiration for a great time with your best friends ♥

Have fun!

Matcha “NoCheese” cake

Ingredients: (for a 26 cm springform pan)

For the base:

For the filling:

  • 1 kg vanilla-flavored soy yoghurt
  • 2 sachets custard powder (check that is it vegan!)
  • 1/2 teacup (125 ml) melted margarine (vegetable)
  • 1/4 teacup (65 ml) agave syrup
  • 2 tablespoons Matcha powder


  • Crushed chocolate cream-filled sandwich biscuits
  • Fresh raspberries


  • Preheat oven to 180ºC.
  • Prepare the base: crush the biscuits and combine with the melted margarine until a dough is formed. Add the content of the teabags and combine again. Now press the dough into the tin and bake for 5 – 8 minutes. Allow to cool while you prepare the filling.
  • For the filling: In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients for the cheesecake filling and cream together with a blender.
  • Pour the mixture into the cooled base and bake until it is golden brown at the edges. Do not worry if the cake is still a bit soft, it will solidify once the cake has completely cooled! Leave covered in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
  • Decorate the cake before serving with a few crumbed biscuits and fresh raspberries.
