Matcha Cheesecake Recipe

Makes: 12-16 Slices

Prep Time: 30 Minutes

Bake Time: 50-60 Minutes

Chill Time: At least 4 hours or overnight


For the Crust

  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

For the Filling

  • 3 packages (24 oz) softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons Senbird's Matcha Otome
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. First, preheat: Begin by preheating your oven to 325°F (163°C). Then, prepare a 9-inch springform pan with a touch of butter.
  1. Secondly, prepare the Crust: Combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and sugar in a bowl. Press this mixture into the bottom of the springform pan, creating a crust.
  1. Then, Bake the Crust: Bake the crust in the oven for 10 minutes. Let it cool down on a rack or counter top as you start the filling process. 
  1. Moving on to, Making the Filling: In a large bowl, gently beat the softened cream cheese until smooth. Then, add sugar and continue to beat until well combined. Add eggs one at a time for a creamy batter. After that, introduce sour cream, flour, Matcha Otome, and vanilla extract, mixing until the batter is smooth. 
  1. Once the filling is ready, Pour the Filling: Pour the batter over the baked crust, spreading it gently and evenly, make sure there are no air pockets or bubbles, this will prevent cracking.
  1. Following this step, Bake the Cheesecake: Bake your cheesecake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes. Based on your oven’s temperature, keep an eye out for the edges and center as they set. 
  1. After baking, Allow to Set and Share: Let your creation cool in the oven with the door slightly ajar for an hour, allowing it to settle. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight, giving the flavors time to meld.

PRO TIP: We suggest using our Matcha Otome which guarantees a complex flavor. This ceremonial grade matcha has a rich velvety note of chocolate with a top note of fresh sweet grass. Dust over cheesecake for a stronger matcha flavor profile.
