Matcha Muffins

Hello guys!

As I promised here is the step-by-step instruction for the Matcha-Muffins. I found the recipe from the website: cookpad.com (Smile Kitchen). The whole description is in japanese, so I translate it for you:

For 6 Muffins you need:

60g butter
60g sugar
1 egg
100g flour
1.5 tablespoon of Matcha (=greentea) powder
1 teaspoon of baking powder
50cc milk

oven baking temperature: 180 C°
baking time: ~25min

What is Matcha??? Matcha is premium green tea powder from Japan used for drinking as tea or as an ingredient in recipes.  While other green teas are grown throughout the world, matcha is unique to Japan.  It is the heart of the Japanese way of tea and has been celebrated in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony for hundreds of years.

As it is my first post about Muffins, I’ll show you how
I usually bake my quick little cakes:mmuffin8As you can see I use colourful baking cups and silicone cups.
You’ll find them in every Migros-shop. mmuffin9

Ok, back to the instruction:
1. mix the butter (room temperature) until it becomes a creamy condition
2. then add the sugar first and then the egg (mix everything together very well)
3. afterwards, add the Matcha-flour (flour+greentea and baking powder > see picture below) to the butter cream
4. finally, add milk.

and now: MIX MIX MIX… mmuffin7…and ready is the matcha-dough! :)

Now it’s your decision wheter you like to add more ingredients.
I decided to bake some Muffins with:
– Matcha-syrup
– Chocolate chip
– つぶあん (Red Azuki bean paste)

1. Bottom: 1/3 Matcha-dough
2. Middle: Matcha-syrup, chocolate chip or つぶあん
3. Top: again 1/3 Matcha-dough

If you are satisfied with your result, heat the oven to 180C° and bake the Muffins for about 25 minutes.
