"For all green tea lovers. Your normal cupcakes but with a delicious twist ;) These cupcakes are quite dense and very yummy. If you like frosting, make your own and add some green tea powder to it."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4 cups
2 1/2 cups
green tea powder (matcha)
Based on the review I did some searching and found this recipe (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/green-tea-cupcakes-topped-with-green-tea-buttercream-frosting-recipe.html) that shared some of the quantities / ingredients in this recipe but incorporated some important differences so I used that recipe to make some changes to this one. The changes are that I included adding 3 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt, and using oil instead of butter. I also used a full cup of milk, and a little more matcha powder - 3 TBS. I made those changes and my cupcakes were WONDERFUL. Perfectly tender cupcakes with a little crispy top. These are delicious!! I topped them with a quick and easy matcha glaze (about 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp matcha powder, and 1 - 2 TBS milk to thin), then dipped the slightly still warm cupcake tops in the glaze.
the funny thing about this recipe is that the ingredients says 1/2 cup milk but it says nothing in the directions! I wasn't sure when to add it. I thought I overlooked but I didn't. so I added the milk in the batter anyway. and the result, it came out so dry and does not taste good at all. Sorry, I tried :(
