Matcha White Chocolate Muffins

Matcha White Chocolate Muffins

I mixed melted white chocolate into my matcha muffin batter and baked up some muffins. They turned out very fluffy and tasty.

Ingredients: 5-6 muffins

Cake flour
96g
Matcha
4g
Baking powder
2g
Butter
65g
Granulated sugar
60g
Egg
1
Milk
20ml
White chocolate
30g
Nuts (or other fillings such as sesame seeds)
to taste

Steps

1. Combine the milk and 8 pieces of white chocolate (about 30g) in a small sauce pan and dissolve them over boiling water.
2. Sift the flour, matcha, and baking powder together. Preheat the oven to 170°C.
3. Soften the butter, place it in a bowl with sugar, and mix evenly.
4. Gradually add the beaten egg to the bowl, a little at a time, mixing well after each addition.
5. Alternately add the powder and melted chocolate sauce into the bowl in 3 batches, stirring well after each addition.
6. Pour the mixture into muffin cups and top with nuts if desired. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 170°C.
7. They should turn out crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Enjoy them freshly baked and you'll see what I mean.
8. I wrapped them up for a present. I forgot the lace paper doily, though.
9. I used this white chocolate.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wondered how the combination of bitter matcha and chocolate would taste.
