Step 1

Pre heat oven to 350°F

In a large mixing bowl sift together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and soda, salt, sugar and green tea powder.

In a seperate smaller bowl mix the soy milk and apple cider vinegar and let sit for a minute or two for the milk to curdle

Add the oil and vanilla to the milk, then mix into the large bowl of dry ingredients. Stir the batter until just combined

Line a cupcake tray with cupcake cases and fill with batter 3/4 of a way up. I used extra large cupcake cases and got 10 out of this recipe

Place in oven and bake for 16 to 18 minutes, until golden. Poke one with a bamboo stick, if it comes out clean they are ready

Cool completely before icing.

Place butter in a large bowl and cream with an electric whisk, or tough it out and beat it by hand if you don’t have the electrics like me.

Add the icing sugar 1/2 cup at a time, beating and combining before adding the next batch, until you have lovely thick creamy frosting. Now mix in the vanilla and Match green tea powder until well combined.

Decorate cupcakes as desired once they are fully cooled.
