Vegan Green Tea Cupcakes
I love how green tea has a subtle ability to refresh coupled with a slight hint of savoriness. I adore how vegan cupcakes can be a celebratory canvas for almost any flavor combination, that you get to just pick up and take a bite out of. But how do you infuse green tea into a baked cake product? Easy, right?

I used cocoa powder instead of matcha and added a bit of salt. Fluffy like fresh from a bakery!
I made these cupcakes with olive oil, they are delicious and fluffy. This recipe is also very tasty as a cake but you need to bake it for a bit longer! Thanks for your great recipes!
I'm not vegan so I'm always a little hesitant to do vegan baking, but these were amazing. I used 1/2 cup honey instead of the sugar and went with coconut milk. They turned out incredibly fluffy and were really easy to make.
Thanks for the recipe!
Didn't cook properly
I didn't have tapioca flour, or cake flour as this recipe suggested, so substituted for extra cornflour.
My muffins took a long time about cooking in the middle despite turning brown on top! The mixture rose and eventually shrivelled and sank in the middle. I can't imagine just a simple substitute would do this much damage?
These cupcakes were absolutely delicious!!!! I made them with coconut milk and they turned out WOOOOWWW!!!!
I'm not vegan but I'll keep this recipe as a "light treasure"
Thank you so much and congratulations for such a great web! From Uruguay!
I made these tonight--was craving something 'cakey' and had no eggs or milk. I'm not vegan, but I do eat animal-friendly, so I checked out recipes for a vegan cake of some sort. This sounded good and the ingredients were all on hand so I went with it--they are slightly denser than traditional cupcakes, but only a tiny bit so.
They were pretty green and they had a great, light green tea flavor with just enough sweetness.
Great recipe! Thank you so much!
I don't bake much as a vegan, because many recipes don't hold up to egg/dairy substitutes. But wow, these cupcakes came out perfect! Light, fluffy, and delicious.
Such a great recipe!
Wow, I just made these and they're so great! Thank you for this recipe, I'm always on the lookout for dairy free cup/cake ones and these are great! For a noob baker, the recipe was easy to follow, and the result was great! The cupcakes were moist and delicious.
I just baked these, and they are heavenly. I appreciate that the instructions were so specific and exact (e.g. "¾ cup + 1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon non-dairy milk"). The cupcakes are the perfect amount of sweet, moist, and flavorful. They also taste healthy which makes for guilt-free eating. Thank you Mattie!
