Matcha Green Tea Cupcakes

Ingredients

It's world baking day and we couldn't be more excited. The matcha mania has taken the baking world by storm and for a good reason. Here's a quick and easy recipe for matcha cupcakes that will delight your taste buds.

  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon free-flow salt
  • 5 teaspoons of Heapwell Japanese Matcha Green Tea
  • 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup of milk at room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • A standard muffin tin
  • Cupcake paper liners

Method

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 175 degrees Celsius.
  • Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, Heapwell Japanese Matcha Green Tea powder, salt. Sifting might be time-consuming but it gives the cakes a lightness that's much desired.
  • Add the eggs to the room temperature butter and mix using a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer. You could mix using your hands but it would take more time.
  • Add the milk and then the flour mixture to the bowl and combine everything together.
  • Line your muffin tin with the paper and then dollop the batter in the shape of small roundels in the molds. Make sure you fill each mold halfway through.
  • Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes till the cakes rise. Let them cool in the tin for at least five minutes.
  • Unmold them and transfer them to a wire rack so that they cool completely.


These vibrant cupcakes can be relished as they are or with a matcha ganache. Make sure you have all the ingredients for an extra batch because you're not going to stop after the first one!
