- ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing the pan
- 2 ¼ cup glutinous rice flour
- 1 ¾ cups granulated sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ¾ cup full-fat coconut milk
- ¾ cup evaporated milk
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 12 oz fresh raspberries
- 2 cups confectioners’ sugar, plus more for dusting
- ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons full-fat coconut milk
- 2 tsp culinary matcha
- Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom of a 9-inch round cake pan with parchment paper and grease the sides and bottom of the pan with butter.
- Prepare the cake: In a large bowl, whisk together the rice flour, granulated sugar and baking powder. In a medium bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup coconut milk with the evaporated milk, eggs, vanilla and the 1/4 cup melted butter. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk thoroughly until combined.
- Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Add half the raspberries to the cake batter one raspberry at a time, 1 inch apart, pushing each berry into the batter to fully submerge.
- Bake the cake until it’s fully golden brown on top, the center is firm and no longer jiggly, and a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack. After the cake has cooled slightly, about 10 minutes, run a knife around the inside edge of the pan. Continue to let cool in the pan.
- Prepare the matcha glaze: Add the confectioners’ sugar, coconut milk and matcha powder to a medium bowl. Whisk until smooth; set aside.
- Once the cake has fully cooled, carefully invert it onto a cake platter or serving plate. Spoon the matcha glaze on top just until the top of the cake is coated. (You’ll have some glaze leftover.) Using the back of the spoon and working in 1-inch increments, swipe the matcha glaze from the top of the cake gradually over the edge of the cake, so it drips decoratively down the sides. (You can add more glaze as needed, or serve any additional glaze with the cake.)
- Carefully place the remaining raspberries in a decorative pile in the center of the cake. Lightly dust raspberries with confectioners’ sugar and serve immediately. Store the cake in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
