  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tbsp green tea powder (matcha)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cup water
  • 2 egg whites
  • ¼ cup fresh milk


  • In a bowl, sift together the cake flour, sugar, baking powder, green tea powder and salt. Set aside.

  • Carefully remove the muffin pan from the heat and allow to cool at least 30 seconds before removing the puto from the muffin pan.
