Cupcakes 1

By Richard Frankum - Posted on 01 February 2011

As part of KitchenHacks, I experimented with baking cupcakes for the HackerSpace Cupcake Challenge. This was done on 1/15, before the Hackathon (thank goodness!)

The idea was to give something Japan-related, so I thought I would make "matcha" (green tea) flavored cupcakes.

All we had at the Hackerspace were actual tea leaves, so first I brewed a strong cup.


I had seen a recipe for coffee-flavored cupcakes that used a half cup of strong coffee.
When adding the matcha to a vanilla recipe, though, the cupcakes didn't turn out as green as I'd hoped.

So I added some green food coloring we had left over. Mistake!


The batter reminds me of Shamrock Shakes.

Not to be too dismayed, carried on with the baking. The result was reminicent of Kryptonite rocks.


Considered this a failed hack. Next time!
