So pomegranates are finally in season – and actually looking good and not just finally on the shelves. So I decided to make that recipe that inspired me all the way back when I started my baking adventures. So I returned to the Pomegranate Green Tea Cupcakes from chockylit. I used the same green tea cupcake recipe as I did on round 1, and while I was inspired by chockylit’s frosting I ended up being a bit squicked by the uncooked egg-whites as a foam thing and made a somewhat soupy cream cheese frosting instead.
So for my first foray into coworker-testing I decided to make matcha (green tea) cupcakes. I started off really wanting to make this recipe from chockylit. Unfortunately for me…it was June. Pomegranate season is October-January so June was definitely not an opportune time for that recipe. Instead I ended up pooling a number of different recipes to make Matcha Cupcakes with a Matcha Frosting and Chocolate Shavings .
