Vegan Green Tea Cupcakes

  • 12Servings


  • 3/4 cup + 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp non dairy milk
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup + 3 Tbsp cake flour, sifted
  • 2 Tbsp matcha green tea powder, sifted
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup + 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Curdle the milk by whisking the milk and apple cider vinegar together in a small bowl until it is smooth. Allow the milk mixture to sit for about 10 minutes so the mixture can slightly thicken.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, sift the flour, green tea powder, baking powder, and baking soda.
  4. In another medium mixing bowl, whisk the sugar, oil, vanilla extract, and salt together. Add the milk and vinegar mixture into this bowl and whisk everything together.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk together until everything is just incorporated and there are no longer any lumps. Do not over mix the batter.
  6. Pour the batter evenly into cupcake liners. The batter should reach 1/2 way up the cupcake liner. Bake for 17 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
