I am going on vacation starting tomorrow and guess what? A friend's birthday happens to be tomorrow. And being such a nice friend we asked him to deliver us to the airport, not knowing it is going to be his birthday, at 7 in the morning. That means we made him to wake up at 6am on his birthday. How wonderful we are us his friend? Now he has a long day to celebrate his birthday!
I was going to try the matcha mochi cupcakes recipe to make some breakfast to eat at the airport, but since the birthday boy requested his belated birthday cake to be mocha flavour, I decided to switch the matcha into mocha. (This is so not recommended as I haven't even tried the original recipe yet.)
I haven't try these little guys yet, but they look cute and promising. Here is what I did:
original recipe from The Humble Bean
151g mochiko (1/3 box)1/3 cup sugar
1/3 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. instant expresso powder
1/2 tsp. cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Whisk all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, and oil. Add dry ingredients and stir until incorporated. Spoon batter in a muffin pan lined with baking cups and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
