Butter-Free, Matcha Muffins Recipe with Fresh Cream

Imagine conjuring up tasty, moist muffins but without the butter involved. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, my lovelies, I assure you it is not. Let's jump into this delightfully simple recipe of Matcha Muffins with fresh cream that not only satisfy your sweet cravings but are also incredibly easy to bake!

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Sugar: 60g (keeps our muffins sweet)
  • 1 Egg (adds structure to our muffins)
  • Fresh Cream: 100ml (makes our muffins moist and rich)
  • Salad Oil: 2 tablespoons (helps to retain moisture)
  • Soft Flour: 130g (gives the muffin its body)
  • Matcha Powder: 10g (gives the lovely green color and flavor)
  • Baking Powder: 4g (leavens the muffins)
  • Optional: Amanatto or sweetened beans: To your preference (adds a sweet surprise)

Let's Prep Up:

First off, let's merge all the ingredients marked with ☆ (soft flour, matcha powder, baking powder) and sift them together, this will ensure our muffins are light and fluffy.

Next, secure glassine cupcake liners in your muffin tray.

Finally, preheat that oven to 170℃ (340℉). Yep, hotties!

The Baking Magic:

  1. Grab a bowl and put in all the ingredients marked with ● (Sugar, egg, fresh cream, and salad oil). Get that arm workout by mixing them well using a whisk.

  2. Now’s the time to swap the whisk for a rubber spatula. Gradually add in the ☆ ingredients (the ones we sifted) and stir them in until your batter is combined.

  3. Pour that luscious batter into the prepared muffin tray, and sprinkle some Amanatto on top if you fancy that.

  4. Pop them into the preheated oven. Set a timer for 20 minutes and try not to drool as the scent of matcha fills your kitchen.

  5. Once baked, coax those beauties out of the muffin tray and let them cool on a cake rack.

And voila! You've made your very own butter-less, mesmerizing matcha muffins! Now get out there and share the love (or keep them all to yourself, I won't judge!).
