Green Tea Cupcakes

They’re vegan too!
Makes about 12 cupcakes

For frosting options:
Almond or Vanilla frosting
Lemon &/or Honey frosting
If you can find green tea macha powder, there’s also Green Tea frosting
These are also wonderful plain, so moist!

1 cup soy milk
4 green tea bags
1 tsp apple cider vinegar

(Wisk or sift dry ingredients)
1 1/4 cup AP flour
2 TB cornstarch
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1/3 cup canola oil
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract

Green food coloring (Avocado color)

Heat soy milk & soak tea bags for 1/2 hour or longer
Add vinegar to milk mixture for 5-10 min to “curdle”
Next wet ingredients
Add dry mixture
Tint batter for green tea color, I like Avocado green food coloring

Here’s a base Buttercream, then you can add flavors to taste:
1/2 lb butter (2 sticks)
2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp – 2 tsp vanilla
To make, it helps to have a stand mixer to achieve fluffiness
