British Tea Cupcakes
Rebecca of Chow and Chatter sent me some British Tea which I received yesterday. I was so excited and immediately drop one tea bag into my mug of boiling water, I can smell instantly the aroma of the refreshing tea flavour….Mmm…What a great cup of tea. Thanks again, Rebecca.
I have used the British tea to make some cupcakes today and this is for you, Rebecca. Hope you like this and bake some at home.
100g Butter, softened
1/2 cup Milk (125ml)
1 tsp Baking soda
1/2 cup Boiling water with 1 tea bag of British tea
220g All Purpose Flour (plain flour)
1/4 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking powder
one bag of British tea leaves
- Sift flour, salt and baking powder together in a bowl. Dissolve baking soda in milk.
- Cream butter and sugar until light. Add eggs one at a time, continue beating.
- Then add in the rest of the ingredients (milk, tea liquid *remove tea bag*, flour ingredients and British tea leaves), beat till smooth (about one minute).
- Spoon batter into greased paper cases to 3/4 full.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 170C for about 25 mins or until skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
- Leave cupcakes to cool on rack or serve warm with “British Tea”.

Tasteofbeirut: Yes! You can find Afternoon Tea in some hotel here where they served tea with lots of cakes and pastries.
It reminds me of the pastries served at the very fancy and wonderful shop in Paris, France, Mariage Freres; all their pastries have tea in them!
that's a great way to use those tea bags. Hope you enjoyed your muffins, they look great.
Colargol: Thanks for your compliment. Hope you enjoyed this ;D
