30 minutes Healthy Matcha Yogurt Muffins 30分钟健康酸奶抹茶马芬(中英食谱教程)

Last night, my little one before going to bed suddenly told me that he wanted to bring muffins for school recess tomorrow. Err...I was looking forward to my personal time after he has gone to bed but on the other hand, I didn't want to disappoint him as he was looking at me eagerly, waiting for my 'ok' answer. 

I am glad I have this quick and easy muffin recipe which can be completed in 30 minutes. I have made this in Chocolate flavour before and if you prefer Chocolate over Matcha, you can find the recipe here. This recipe is very straight forward, just combined the dry ingredients and wet ingredients seperately first then mix together. All you need is 2 bowls, one hand whisk and one rubber spatula. Easy Peasy right? :p

昨晚,我家的小瓜在临睡前,突然说明天要带马芬去学校, 休惜吃。 为了不让他失望,即使这么迟了,还是答应了他。还好有这个即块又简易的食谱,让我在30分钟内完成。之前有做过巧克力口味的,有兴趣的话,可以按看食谱。

Added Azuki bean fillings as I found a can in the pantry. 

30 minutes Healthy Matcha Yogurt Muffin
30 分钟酸奶抹茶松饼

Ingredients: (makes 12)

200g Plain Flour
100g Caster Sugar
15g Matcha Powder
1 tsp Baking Powder
3/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 Egg (60g)
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
250g Greek style Yoghurt
85g Unsalted Butter, melted (can replaced with 70ml of Sunflower or canola oil)

Canned Azuki Beans 


200克 普通面粉 
100克 幼糖
15克 抹茶粉
1茶匙 发粉
3/4茶匙 小苏打粉
1/4茶匙 盐
1/2茶匙 香草精
250克纯酸奶 (建议用质地厚的希腊式酸奶)
85克牛油,融化 (可以用70毫升的日葵或菜籽油取代)


1. Preheat oven at 200 degrees celsius, prepare 12 muffin cups.

1。预热烤箱以摄氏200度, 准备12个松饼烤杯。

2. In a large bowl, combine the first six dry ingredients.

3. In another bowl, use the hand whisk to beat the egg, vanilla extract, yoghurt and butter. 

4. Gently fold this mixture into the dry ingredients until all ingredients are incorporated. Take care not to over mix, the final mixture is of lumpy texture.

5. Fill muffin cases till 80% full. (I have added canned azuki/red bean paste in between the fill.) 

5。倒入松饼杯八分满. (我加了罐头红豆馅)

6. Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Hello, where to get the matcha powder? Thks.

Ying said...

you can get them online from amazon or any asian market

Hi, (you didn't leave your name so I can't address you)
If you are based in Singapore like me, you can buy the matcha powder (the same Japanese brand as shown in my ingredients photo) from either Isetan supermarket or at certain NTUC Finest outlets like Bt Timah Plaza. You can also find matcha powder in baking supplies shop like Phoon Huat but I find it less fragrant and looks artificial, seems like colouring has been added to it and it is not natural as compared to those made in Japan.

Hi can I substitute the matcha with some green tea powder?

Baking Taitai said...

Hi, matcha is also known as green tea powder to some. Yes, you can use it if it is of baking grade. If not, your bake will not be as fragrance.

Hi baking tai tai,

May I know where do you get the azuki/red beans?

Hi Shannon, if you are residing in Singapore, you can get the canned azuki beans in the Japanese food section at Fairprice Finest, cold storage, Meidi-ya, supermarkets.
