Green Tea Hokkaido Cupcake




The family enjoys Hokkaido chiffon cupcakes. Wife has been using the recipe shared by my "Big Big Sister" Sonia from Nasi Lemak Lover on numerous occasions now. Last week, she wanted to try something different and added some green tea powder to make this green tea Hokkaido cupcakes.

For all green tea lovers out there, try this variation which is as soft and light as the original version but it has the extra Matcha twist!

  15. Hi Alvin,

    Seeing green, I thought your wife has baked pandan Hokkaido cupcakes for Joceline's LTU... Ai ya, it's green tea. Look the same but taste so different :p

    Funny that you are calling Sonia, big sis! Yeah, I like Sonia's recipe collection too. She is always very passionate with her cooking and baking. These cupcakes must be very good!!!
