I have posted a matcha green tea muffin before, but this one is different kind of muffin, I use regular all purpose flour, and I don't use cream cheese filling. Just a simple, regular, humble muffin.
Still special tho, with the amount of green tea I use :D. Even when it still in the oven, I already taste the green tea on my taste bud.
200 gr all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp green tea powder *
*Matcha green tea powder has so many varieties, so the taste, color, and fragrant will be depending on which brand you choose. Some is more bitter, greener and flavourfull than the others. This also related to how much sugar you need to use.
125 gr plain yogurt
175 gr caster sugar
1 large egg
80 gr oil/butter, or mix the two to get both fragrant and moist texture.
HOW TO :
1. Mix all the dry ingredients. set aside
2. Mix all the wet ingredients, then add in the dry ingredients with flour strainer/shifter. Do not skip this stage, as green tea may have small lumps without fine shifter! Mix with balloon whisker just until the ingredients look well combined. Do not mix it too long, it will make the muffin though.
3. Spoon the mixture to muffin cups, bake at 180 degree C for about 20-30 minutes, depending on your oven.
