Steamed Chinese Matcha Muffins (Green Tea Huat Kueh 绿茶发糕) is a light, fluffy and pillow soft rice cake. As the name implies, it is steamed instead of baked. The process and duration of making these rice cakes may be slightly longer, however the end results are definitely satisfying.
These otherwise simple steamed rice cakes (Huat Kueh 发糕) are made special with addition of matcha (green tea) powder. The green tea powder gives the rice cakes a unique rich and refreshing look and taste as well as sweetness. The green tea flavour is apparent but not overpowering. The aroma is further enhanced with a touch of pandan flavour in it.
A definitely delicious Huat Kueh recipe to try at home! As usual, enjoy!
