Steamed Hojicha Muffins

Steamed Hojicha Muffins
Steamed hojicha muffins are light and flavorful. Grind loose leaf hojicha in a cleaned electric coffee grinder to make hojicha powder (make sure the grinder is unplugged when you clean it). A perfect little treat for tea time! You can put anko (red bean paste) in the middle, or put some raisins if you like!
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g (3.5oz) sugar
  • 200ml (4/5 cup) milk
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil
  • 200g (7oz) flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons hojicha powder (grind 3 tablespoons of loose leaf hojicha)
  1. In a large bowl, mix the eggs and sugar well with a whisk.
  2. Add the milk and mix, then add the oil and mix well.
  3. Add the flour, baking powder and hojicha powder, sifting, and mix by folding with a spatula.
  4. Pour the batter into paper-lined cups and steam in a steamer for 20 minutes on mid-high heat or until a toothpick comes out clean.
