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!
Not to be too dismayed, carried on with the baking. The result was reminicent of Kryptonite rocks.
Considered this a failed hack. Next time!
