The poundcake base is from Southern Living, halved.

Matcha powder is green tea, with all fibrous material removed.

3/4 cup butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 TSP vanilla
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 TBSP matcha green tea powder
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

White Chocolate Icing:
1 ounce white chocolate chips
~ 1 TBSP cream or milk
1/2 cup icing sugar

Beat the butter & cream cheese together until completely smooth. Add the vanilla & sugar, beating until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, until well combined. Add the flour & salt, mixing just until incorporated.

Remove approx. 1/3 of the batter & place in a small bowl. To the remaining batter, add the matcha powder, mixing until combined; add the chocolate chips.

In a greased or parchment-lined loaf pan, alternatively drop large spoonfuls of the white & green batter. Run a knife through the batters to create a swirled effect. Smooth the top. Bake at 325F for approximately 60 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean.

Over low heat, melt together the white chocolate & cream, stirring to combine. Add the icing sugar. Add more liquid, if necessary, to thin. Spread over the cooled loaf, allowing it to drip down the sides.
