    I tried the recipe but my cupcakes ended up being brown and the crumble was black… is this because I overcooked it? Or could it be the type of matcha I am using ????

      Hi there, thank you for the message. Yes some matcha powders do end up with brown-ish colour, instead of vivid green. I used 御抹茶 (found images here: http://japanfood.eu/product.php?id_product=1192).
      It is possible that the oven burnt the crumb topping. To prevent this you can place aluminum foil on top of muffins once the colour is ideal, and continue baking until fully cooked (inserted toothpick comes out clean). Hope this helps!
