Honey Vanilla Muffins with Green Tea Icing!

They taste great, light enough that I can have three in a sitting  Cheesy I modified a recipe I found on the Internet. Prep and baking take under an hour and a half, which is really convenient. I've made them for four different groups of people and they all loved them  Grin

*One Dozen*

- 2 cups allpurpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

In a large bowl, sift flour, sugar, baking bowder and salt. Pour lightly whisked egg, milk, melted butter, and honey into a blender and set on low for about ten seconds. Pour into a bowl and add vanilla. Gradually stir into dry ingredients until you have a creamy paste.
Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from pan to a wire rack and let cool for about 10 minutes. If desired, add icing.

Green Tea Icing

Sift 1/2 cup icing sugar and 1 tsp matcha (green tea powder) into a bowl. Add about 1.5 tbsp water and mix until you have a thick paste. Scrape into plastic bag and make a small diagonal incision in a bottom corner. If desired, refridgerate for a few minutes to make it less runny and faster-hardening.

Enjoy! Let me know how it goes if you make them!

OMG I am so going to make these, and maybe my husband won't complain that I am trying to fatten him up...

Now just to find somewhere locally that has matcha, I have been meaning to go looking for it for months now (I have been itching to make green tea cheesecake).

Thanks! Zelda.Suicide, I don't know if there are any in your area, but a lot of Asian supermarkets carry it. Otherwise, it may be available in the 'exotic foods' aisle of a grocery store.

There are more than a few asian markets in the area, I just need to get my butt over to one... although it's always dangerous for me to go in them, the candy/snack aisle always calls to me (and then ends up costing me!

Oh, I don't know if it makes a huge difference, but, after being blended, your mixture will have a layer of foam at the top. It's totally normal, and furthermore I actually use it in the muffins.  Cheesy
