Green Tea Muffins

2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp powdered Japanese green tea (Matcha)
1/2 cup milk (I {Re: Mariko} used nonfat and it was okay)
1 stick of butter, softened
2 eggs

Oven 350º F.

Sift together the flour, baking soda, and green tea powder and set aside. In a large bowl, beat the butter until light. Add the sugar and beat some more until light and fluffy. Add the dry mixture and the milk. Stir with a spatula or wooden spoon until the dry ingredients are just incorporated (don't overmix). The batter will be somewhat lumpy. Divide the batter among the muffin tins (I used those foil liners. If you don't have any liners, grease the tins), about 2/3 full. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack. Makes 12 muffins

I'd like to thank Mariko over at Super Eggplant for allowing me to borrow her recipe and photo. Okay, technically it's not her recipe (According to her, it's the Internet's), but I got the idea (and photo) from her blog. Thanks so much, Mariko! Go check out her blog, it's loads of fun! :)
