This time around I was looking for a nice balance – some chocolate but not *all* chocolate. And since I found this recipe while looking for the spritz cookies last week I was completely set on what to make this week. Loves to Eat picked up the recipe from Annie’s Eats, and it was absolutely fabulous.
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 .
Despite the plethora of baking blogs out there I’ve decided to throw mine into the fray. I usually make about 1 recipe/week and then inflict them on my coworkers (usually Mondays – nothing starts a week better than sugar!) While I usually will be using a recipe from other blogs I’ll be detailing my experiences and thought on future adulterations here.
If nothing else this should provide a personal record of what I’ve made and how it turned out – but hopefully it can be of some use to other people too ^^
