kitchen stories: Apple Cupcakes with Matcha frosting || vegan

apple cupcakes 03

Sweet, moist, yummy. I think that describes these Apple Cupcakes I baked today pretty well.

Topped with Matcha frosting and some candied apple peel they got their finishing touches to be served tomorrow. The slightly bitter note of Matcha complements the sweet and fruity apple taste in a nice way, and my flatmates seem to like these cupcakes. If you want to try one yourself, come to the Kü-Ché tomorrow afternoon:

Kü-Ché at neun10räume
Moltkestraße 11, 35390 Gießen

For those of you who do not happen to be around Gießen tomorrow, why don’t you bake them yourself? I translated the recipe of the cupcakes for all of you non-German speakers into English, although the recipe is not mine, all credit goes to Lillifred at
