That sounds great! Simple, but delicious. And it looks gorgeous, too.

Here's a delicious sounding recipe (have yet to try it) using my favorite Chai! I do love other teas too, but Chai has such wonderful spices.

I know that vegan cake is sometimes good instead of regular cake. My brother has a recipe for chocolate vegan cake that my sister makes and you would never think it was vegan.

Ingredients
Green Tea Cupcakes: I found this on Food Network.

2 1/2 cups cake flour, sifted
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons matcha (green tea) powder
2 teaspoons almond extract
2 eggs
Green Tea Buttercream Frosting
1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter, softened
2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon matcha (green tea) powder

Directions

For the cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with 24 cupcake liners.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt until thoroughly blended.

Whisk together the milk and oil, and add to the dry ingredients. Beat for 2 minutes on medium speed. Add the matcha powder, almond extract and eggs and beat again for 2 minutes on medium speed. Pour the batter into the pans, filling three-quarters of the way full. Bake until cakes test done, about 15 minutes. Allow cupcakes to cool completely.

For the buttercream: Place the butter in the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Add one-third of the sugar and blend well. Add in the remaining sugar one-third at a time, blending well between each addition. Add in the milk and matcha powder and beat until light and fluffy.

To assemble: Add the buttercream to a large pastry bag with a grass tip and pipe in small dollops to resemble grass.

This recipe was created by a contestant during a cooking competition. The Food Network Kitchens have not tested it for home use, therefore, we cannot make any representation as to the results.

Nice magazine, Rheyn, but I didn't see any recipes featuring tea. Where did I go wrong? emoticon
