  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. Beat the butter, vegetable oil butter spread, sweetener, and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add the room-temperature egg whites one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in the vanilla and almond extracts with the last egg. Combine cake flour, baking powder, and green tea powder in a small bowl. Pour in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing until just incorporated. Pour the batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Even though I only had regular all purpose flour, they turned out just lovely. I'm just slightly disappointed that I can't taste the green tea flavor at all; the almond extract is a little overp...

I've never been a fan of green tea, the beverage, but I love green tea flavoured things. I thought I would give this recipe a shot anyway. Like another reviewer, I used all fatty options, but I ...
