Matcha Mochi by The Aimless Cook

Adapted from Lemonpi

These are some tasty green tea cakes that make a delicious snack or dessert. They are moist and chewy with a slightly crispy exterior and not to overly sweet like regular cupcakes. Try them for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.

You will need:

  • 220g mochiko rice flour
  • 5g matcha powder (green tea)
  • 85g unsalted butter, melted
  • 155g caster sugar
  • ¾ cup evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • black and white sesame seeds

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease and flour a cupcake pan.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together 220g of mochiko, 5g of matcha and a teaspoon of baking powder.

In an electric mixer, whisk 2 eggs and 155g of caster sugar until light and fluffy. Add in 85g of melted butter, then ¾ cup of evaporated milk. Next, add in the dry ingredients and continue to mix til smooth.

Pour the batter into your cupcake pan, using about ¼ cup per cake. Sprinkle the tops with black and white sesame seeds.

Bake for 20 – 25 minutes in a preheated 350F oven or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool on a rack, then remove from the pan.

    Hello Chef, my favorite tea-infused food is what I grew up calling “tea rice.” It’s just a bowl of warm rice eaten cereal style with green tea as the liquid. Sometimes my mom would buy these little packets that contain the green tea powder, little strips of dried seaweed and little rice cracker crunchies – sprinkle over rice and add hot water. Nom!

    I have always wanted to try a matcha cake or ice cream recipe. Since I love mochi too, I’ll give your recipe a go! Thank you Chef!

    Hi:) Im from HK & wanna ask if mochiko flour is the same as normal glutinous rice flour. Also can i adjust the proportion of mochiko flour & matcha powder to my taste? Do I need to adjust the proportion of other ingredients coz of this?? Thank you & love your recipe:))

    Hi! Saw your video and I’ve never seen green tea cupcakes that look that moist! Is there an alternative to using glutinous rice flour if it’s not available? Like plain or cake flour? Does it make the cupcake more dry and less moist because of that? Thanks so much!
