Mocafe Matcha Green Tea Cupcakes

I have always fancied myself something of a kitchen chemist–taking recipes and making adjustments and tweaks, and (hopefully) improvements.  Unfortunately, time has become a premium commodity for me; and one of the first things I seem to have lost is my ability to “play” in the kitchen.

So you can only imagine my happiness at discovering a wealth of contests and blog hops related to recipes, food and all-around “playing” with kitchen appliances and food!  Enter 5 Minutes for Mom and their Mocha Matcha Green Tea Lovers Blendtec Blender Giveaway (how’s that for a mouthful?)

So here’s my entry for the contest–something super easy, quick to make and delicious!   If you get a chance to make these yourself, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Mocafe Matcha Green Tea Cupcakes
Recipe type: dessert
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 18-24 cupcakes
  • 1 envelope of Matcha Green Tea Latte mix
  • 1 box of white cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • ½ cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 carton of heavy whipping cream
  • 5 teaspoons of sugar
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla
  • ½ package of Mocafe Matcha Green Tea Latte mix
  • Raspberries for garnish
  1. For the Cupcakes:
  2. Put the cake mix and the Green Tea Latte mix into a medium or large batter bowl; mix the eggs, milk and butter together in a separate bowl or measuring cup. Add the liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and blend together until mixture is smooth.
  3. In a muffin tin with paper liners, fill each cup ⅔ full; bake at 350 for 16 minutes (or insert a toothpick into the center and it comes out clean). Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before frosting.
  4. For the Frosting
  5. Mix cream, sugar, vanilla and Latte mix in a bowl with electric beaters until stiff peaks form. Frost cooled cupcakes and garnish with fruit.


I hope you give this recipe a try.  I ended up with extra batter so I even made up some Green Tea Latte mini-loaves, which I took with me to the Corner Bakery for a relaxing mid-morning snack with my Latte.

Great snack for a coffee break
