Steamed Green Tea Cupcakes


I have this strange love for anything matcha. I’m not sure if I just like the colour green, the bitter taste, the health benefits or a combination of all the above. When I stumbled across steamed green tea cupcakes from, I just had to give it a try. I didn't even know steamed cake was even a thing. It didn’t come out exactly the way I had imagined but it was still good and I think I will try making them again. The steaming part was a bit foreign to me so I don’t think I steamed them quite right but I think that if I were to try again, they should come out a bit better and fluffier. If you want a dessert that’s not too sweet and like the taste of matcha, I suggest you give these a try. If you’re craving for something a bit sweeter, you could add some chocolate chips and/or have it with chocolate frosting. I also made a youtube video for this and used Final Cut Pro for the first time! I'm slowly teaching myself how to edit and finding it fun so stay tuned for more videos in the future!
