Green Tea Yogurt Cupcakes/Muffins

Looks like I am addicted in baking yogurt cake right? Actually it is also I bought a big tub of plain yogurt so I have to finish it. This time I tried adding green tea powder into the yogurt cake. This cake has a slight fragrant of green tea and not too sweet.


1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. green tea powder
1 cup plain yogurt
3 large eggs, whisk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup canola oil


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.

*For the paper cups above, it yields 17 cupcakes for me*

Hi Little corner of mine

wow, i have always wanted to try this combination ie green tea with yogurt but dare not because not sure how it will turn out but now, i will certainly go ahead! but before that, would like to ask, should the batter be smooth or with lumps after mixing? and the mixing is done by hand? thks

Beachlover said...

look good and soft.I still didn't have the urge to bake yogurt cake yet! my problem is nobody eat ,end up in trash after weeks!

I too like to make muffins as they are the easiest to bake. I so wanted to try baking with green tea but Carlos is not too keen of it.

By the way, I did the handbag meme at my other blog.

Little Corner of Mine said...

Gigi, actually more work than cake because you have to scoop it into individual cup. Just that you save on the baking time by more than half. Also easier to eat, don't have to cut it with knife. :)

Hi Octopusmum,
The batter is smooth, no lumps. I actually like this more than the Pandan one. :)

You should try this Christy. I like this a lot. :)

Oh thank you family first. Will sure hop over to claim it. :)

Yes noobcook, hope you get your new oven asap, then you can try this.

Thanks mikky. Now I'm into healthy cookies and cakes. :)

Beachlover, in your case, bake it only if you are going to a potluck. You can try some and others will finish it for you. :)

Gert, that a bit difficult hor. Surprisingly my hubby didn't touch the green tea and chocolate ones but ate a lot of green tea one. Ok Gert, will visit your other blog for your meme.

I don't have a muffin tray, but I have both a loaf pan and a pie pan.

Do you think it might turn out well as a loaf? While baking it longer, obviously

tigerfish said...

I promise if I ever start dealing with flour, your site will be my first to reference! :D

Little Corner of Mine said...

Yes Lee, you can bake it in a loaf pan for 50 minutes. My dark chocolate yogurt cake was baked in a loaf pan. :)

Thanks Tigerfish, this one really easy and fail proof.

Since it is "easy and fail proof", as a novice baker, I will definite give it a try. I like this healthy combination (green tea + plain yogurt).

WokandSpoon said...

This looks nice and easy to make! Quick enough for me to make while the 'little monster' is napping!

Little Corner of Mine said...

Yes food for tots, give it a try. Since there is no butter used in this recipe, it doesn't have the fragrant of a butter cake. But it's a lot more healthy and delicious in it's own way. :)

Yes wokandspoon! And less clean up. :)

Lori said...

Little Corner of Mine said...
