Once you know the ‘Basic Plain Cupcakes’ recipe, you can create a variety of cupcakes by adding extra ingredients. Today I added Matcha Powder to make these delicious Matcha flavoured cupcakes. The cream is ‘White Chocolate Cream’ with Matcha Powder added.

1/2 cup Caster Sugar
1 & 1/2 cups Self-Raising Flour

- Spoon the mixture into each case. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Leave in tins for 5 minutes before moving onto wire rack to cool.
