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. Preheat: Begin by preheating your oven to 325°F (163°C). Prepare a 9-inch springform pan with a touch of butter.
  1. 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. 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. Making the Filling: In a large bowl, gently beat the softened cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar and continue to beat until well combined. Add eggs one at a time for a creamy batter. Introduce sour cream, flour, Matcha Otome, and vanilla extract, mixing until the batter is smooth. 
  1. 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. 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. 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.
