matcha nib muffins

We've gone into the rainy season here. Apparently it is 20 days early. Guess the weather will be wet for a couple of weeks. They predict the rainy season will end sometime in the middle of July.

Since I was still hankering for matcha, I decided to try a matcha muffin recipe. I used the basic recipe which I used to make these.

Instead of the 150 grams of flour, I used 140 grams of flour and 10 grams of matcha powder.

Adding a handful of nibs gave the muffin a nice texture, but added more bitterness to it.

This muffin was perfect with morning coffee.

Hi Kat :)

Those muffins looked so good that I decided to try the recipe you posted back in Dec.07.

I made two batches: one with matcha and the other one with just the earl grey.

Well, both batches were fantastic! I took pictures and I'll be putting them up on my blog soon and put a link to the recipe on your blog.

Also, since most of my readers are from Italy, is it okay if I translate the recipe into Italian?

Kat, thank you for a wonderful recipe! And thank you for your beautiful blog which is always a great pleasure to read! :)

Hi Mari,

I would love for you to translate the recipe into Italian for your readers! I am also glad that you loved this recipe too :)

Although I cannot read your blog, I still enjoy looking at the photos :) though I don't always comment.

Take care.
