Easy, tasty matcha green tea yogurt cakes

I've never eaten or made a yogurt cake before.  I found a recipe for green tea yogurt cupcakes on Little Corner of Mine.  The recipe looked so easy, that I had to try it out.  The result came out delicious!  Very easy to make. And very tasty!  Sweet, fluffy, moist. Delicious! And a lovely, light green color.  I made cupcakes and mini bundt cakes. 


Substitutions: I used vanilla flavored yogurt instead of plain yogurt to add a little bit of extra sweetness.  Also I added another teaspoon of matcha green tea to ensure that the end result would be green. Here is my modified recipe for cupcakes:

Yield:  Approximately 15 cupcakes

Ingredients
(A)
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. matcha green tea powder
(B)
1 6oz container vanilla yogurt
3 large eggs, whisk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup canola oil

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350'F. Place paper cups in the muffin pan.

2. In a big bowl, add in (A). Whisk to combine.

3. Then, add in (B). Whisk and blend until incorporated.

4. Lastly, scoop the batter into each papercups until 3/4 full.

5. Bake for 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.

You can also make miniature bunt cakes if you have the little pans.  I made a few bundt cakes as well as cupcakes.

    My husband was looking for nice japanese desert for us to try and deceided to give this one a go.

    I have just one thing to say.. it was really yummy! We added one little addition which was crushed cashew nuts which we felt fitted in with it quite well.

    I have a question – can olive or sunflower oil be used instead of canola? Also, until I can afford the matcha powder, I was thinking of using cocoa powder instead, would it work?

      I haven’t tried with other oils. As for substituting cocoa powder for matcha, it can work but you would have to add much more cocoa powder than matcha for it to taste like chocolate.
