Matcha and White Chocolate Mushipan (Steamed Cakes)

My mother loves Mushipan and she can eat it everyday without getting sick of them. I, on the other hand, have never cared much for them. Don't get me wrong. They are delicious! But most of the time, I feel like they need something to give it that extra oomph. It always feels like something's missing. Of course that's just me, because Mushipan is popular here in Japan. 


Mushipan is basically a cake that's steamed rather than baked so it's much easier to make than a cake and our recipe for Mushipan just doesn't get any easier. And just in case you're wondering, we had to come up with a Mushipan recipe that I actually liked and if you know me by now, I have been in love with matcha for like....forever!

If you're a fan of matcha and if like Mushipan, you'll probably like this recipe. I added some white chocolate chips to give it an extra layer of flavor and just a little more sweetness. These would be perfect for an afternoon snack or even for a light breakfast!

INGREDIENTS: (makes 3) 

1 cup flour
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp matcha powder
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1 tbsp vegetable oil
white chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

First combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and matcha powder and mix to combine. Then add in egg, milk and vegetable oils and mix until the batter is smooth. Fold in white chocolate chips and pour mixture into muffin molds. Steam for approximately 15 minutes covered. Enjoy!
