    HAPPY WEEKEND!

    Ok so before you say anything, yes I can still appreciate the weekends, maybe not the bank holiday weekend but a regular weekend. Hell yes.
    Monday marks my 3rd week of unemployment, which took me by surprise. These weeks have gone so incredibly fast, and I have no shortage of things to fill my time with. Like deciding to make cupcakes. A matcha cupcake, with strawberry frosting. Say WHAAAAT? Hola Cheat day you sexy thing! Also they photograph better than Marilyn Monroe. I mean, check out these puppies! And you know, appreciate my flat lay skills.

    They also mark the end of the Matcha week here on the blog, which is a little sad so I might just have to do one again soon. Anway I bet you’re a little jelly right now. I would be too if I were you. But fret not mon petit cheri ! I have the recipe for ya right here! I’m nice like that.

    Also don’t you judge me for my lack of piping skills. That shit is hard man!

    Ingredients Cupcakes

    1 and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

    1 cup sugar

    1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

    1/2 tsp. salt

    1 tbsn. matcha powder

    1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened, cut into 1-inch cubes

    2 large eggs

    1/2 cup Almond Vanilla Milk

    Ingredients Frosting

    2 cup frosting sugar

    Half a tub of Cream Cheese

    1/4 cup chopped strawberries

    Method Cupcakes
    • Combine flours, sugar, baking powder, salt and matcha powder.
    • Add the butter
    • Whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla.
    • Add the wet ingredients in 3 parts, beat until ingredients are incorporated but do not overbeat. Divide the batter evenly among liners, filling about 2/3 full. Bake until an inserted toothpick comes out clean, 17 – 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
    Method Frosting

    Mix together sugar and cream cheese with an electric mixer until it becomes froffy. (Yes I have made up a word)

    Slowly fold in chopped strawberries and lightly mix with mixer to make it all pink.

    Now eat your heart out baby!
