Matcha Green Tea Mochi Cupcakes

So, you might have noticed that I've decided to join the twitter world. It's something I've thought about, and resisted for a while. But I decided to give it a try. So far it's pretty interesting though it's taking me a while to learn all the features. I keep asking Baby Bro how to do everything and he doesn't understand why it takes me so long to figure it out.

I made some green tea mochi cupcakes because the strawberry mochi cupcakes didn't last long and because I love green tea flavored things, especially mochi!  I used the same new mochi recipe.  I think I'm going to try making cupcakes with the old mochi cake recipe I was using next time.  While the ingredients in this recipe are more ones I'm likely to always have in the house, this recipe is more dense and little bit more cakey and dry.  I like my mochi cake to be a bit chewier and more moist. The recipe I usually use can be found here

My cupcakes were slightly overbaked so that the outside crust was light brown rather than green. It created a nice crunchy top on the cupcakes though. I do love the concept of these as it combines so many of my loves: mochi, green tea and cupcakes.

Green Tea mochi cupcake (Adapted from The Food Librarian who adapted it from Humble Bean)

Yields 24 cupcakes

Ingredients

1 (1 lb.) box mochiko
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. matcha green tea powder
3 eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup oil

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.

2. In a
large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, and oil. Add dry ingredients and
stir until incorporated. Spoon batter in a muffin pan lined with baking
cups and bake for about 25 minutes. (The original recipe called for
30-40 minutes, but I found that made by mochi cakes too brown and
overbaked)

    How to prevent it from getting sticky to the cupcake liner. Please help. I’ve tried twice and still stick to the liner. And mine is kinda mochi texture in the inside. Like undercooked dough. Thanks ? love your blogs! I’ve found silicone pans of rose flowers hehe

      Hmm, I haven’t had that issue. Well the inside should have a mochi texture as they are mochi cupcakes, but usually the exterior isn’t sticky. I would try baking them for a little longer.
