Green Tea Cupcakes made with matcha for a smooth and subtle green tea flavor. These will be moist and delicious! Perfect for beginners!


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons matcha tea


  1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees: Beat unsalted butter until soft. Add sugar and beat until butter and sugar are well blended and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add eggs and egg yolks one at a time and beat for 30 seconds each. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and add batter to mix well. Mix Matcha with milk (I use soy milk) and combine with the cupcake batter
  3. Now scoop 1/3cup of the batter into a ready cupcake pan with papers already intact. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Once the cupcakes are finished, let cool and ice as necessary.
