Green Tea Cupcakes with Red Bean Paste

I know i shouldn’t be mentioning words like “boils” in a food blog, but this cupcake really looks like it has boils all over it.

Well, it wasn’t supposed to be like that.

Before i go any further, lemme just put your minds at ease and clarify that the “boils” were rounded red bean paste and the cupcakes, are green tea cupcakes.

Green tea and red bean- another classic combination.

But the real reason why i baked these today was because i wanted to finish my tub of  expiring yogurt which I know for a fact will cook to the most moist and delicious cupcakes.

Plus, the pictures didn’t show anything wart-like.

Because I was just supposed to pinch the red bean paste and drop it into the batter, NOT make rounded balls. What a pair of overzealous, idle fingers i’ve got this morning!

Green Tea Yogurt Cupcakes

60 gr icing sugar

50 gr unflavoured yogurt

    I never had seen red beans in cup cakes yet and this was the first time, I love the red bean buns so I think theres no reason to like this creation of yours. Great Idea

    I have tried this recipe before and I like the softness of the cupcakes. As I dont know how to pinch my soft red bean paste, I omitted totally. Haha… Yours looks great and I bet it taste better with red bean! 🙂

    I love the crumb on those and how they sit so high. The texture and flavor both look just wonderful. Another great post.
