This is my 2nd attempt after some adjustment to the ingredients :) First attempt I added 1 tsp green tea powder which I find the matcha taste not strong enough. So this time round I added 2 tsp :) Aren't the steamed cupcake looks adorable?! It is so rounded and it did not crack as normal steamed huat kueh!
But one mistake I've made...I forgotten to grease my silicon mould, aren't they suppose to be non-stick >.< , anyway all the cakes got stuck!! all disfigured! sigh~~~ Luckily my boy do not care of the appearance and say it taste good :) Indeed it still taste good after 6 hours in room temp :) I just eaten one disfigured dragonfly for my tea break hahahaha...
