Green Tea Muffins
I’ve been on a major cooking and baking kick lately. I was a little bored a few weekends ago and got in the mood to make some muffins. After some google searching I found this simple recipe on Food.com. They came out pretty good if I do say so myself. I think next time I’ll use a bit more matcha though since I really love that strong flavor. They made the whole house smell like green tea. The one down side is that now I am craving the delicious green tea muffins I used to get every morning from Amai Tea before they closed. Theirs were much more moist and they used to stick a red bean in the middle of each one.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons japanese green tea powder (matcha in Japanese)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup butter, softened at room temperature
- 2 eggs
Prep Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 50 mins
- Preheat oven at 350°F.
- Sift together the flour, baking soda, and green tea powder and set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat the butter until light.
- Add the sugar and eggs and beat some more until light and fluffy.
- Add the dry mixture and the milk.
- Stir with a spatula or wooden spoon until the dry ingredients are just incorporated (don’t overmix). The batter will be somewhat lumpy.
- Divide the batter among the muffin tins (If you don’t have any liners, grease the tins), about 2/3 full.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes.
- Allow to cool on a wire rack.
- Bon appetit!
