Ingredients for 12 Matcha cupcakes Matcha Cupcakes
– 75 g organic whole grain flour
– 75 g corn starch
– 2 tsp Energy Matcha
– 75 g organic whole cane sugar
– 1 pinch Baking soda
– 100 ml semi skimmed milk
– 2 eggs
– 1 tsp Liquid vanilla
– 1 sachet Baking Powder
– 1 sachet Vanilla sugar (optional)
– 1 apple
– 2 handful fresh or frozen raspberries
– 1 tbsb cranberries
– 6 passion fruits 

Preparation
Preheat your oven to 180° (traditional oven, top and bottom, no convection oven)
With a food processor, mix the egg yolk with the sugar until the mixture turns white and double its volume (you can also add the vanilla sugar sachet).
Add the milk, the liquid vanilla and the grated apple. Mix well.
Add the flour and the corn starch (eg. Maïzena), the sachet of baking powder, the matcha tea and the baking soda. Mix well. Whip up egg whites and blend them delicately in the mixture with a spatula. Fill up half of your baking tins with this mixture (I used silicone baking tins). Add 2-3 raspberries to every muffin and cover with a second layer, until the baking tins are filled up to 3/4.
Add 2-3 raspberries on top along with some cranberries (from Il était une noir). Put the Matcha cupcakes in the oven for 25 minutes (and keep on eye on them!) Stick a knife in the muffins, if it comes out dry they are ready. If it’s still wet, put them back in the oven for 2 minutes. Let them cool down and when serving, add half of a passion fruit on every muffin.
