  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Grease and flour 2 - 23cm (9 in) round tins. Sift together the plain flour, cake flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and green tea powder; set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, beat together sugar, oil and eggs until smooth. Stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the yoghurt, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared tins.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 30 minutes before turning out of the tins.

Place the other layer of cake on top, and spread icing to cover the top and sides of cake. Dust with green tea powder if desired. Serve cold or at room temperature.
