Tea Anyone?

I've had my Tea Cupcakes moulds since Christmas. My dad and his girlfriend loaded me up with loads of cakey stuff, was fab!!!

I was thinking of doing a slightly different drink flavoured cupcake in the cup but I decided on green tea as I've never made a tea infused cake before. I've seen lots of them, but never done my own.

As you know I haven't baked for quite a few months so today has been a little tense for me, not sure exactly why ~ my kids aren't here and the OCD hubby is working. Returning to baking nerves methinks.

To make these YUMMY cakes is very simple!! All I did was use my Vanilla Cupcake recipe, but instead of using normal semi-skimmed milk I used green tea infused milk on both the sponge and icing :-)

I guess you want to know how I infused the milk.......

Well ok then!

Infusing milk, this is how I did it......
  1. Pour 1/2 cup of semi-skimmed milk into a microwaveable jug, pop in 2 green teabags. Cook on full power in the microwave for 2 mins or until bubbling hot!
  2. Leave to cool.
  3. When cool enough to touch take out both teabags, cut the top off one of them and spoon out about 1/2 the tea leaves and stir into the milk. 
  4. When completely cool use the milk as you would normally. 
Also I used a little bit of green colour paste, in both the sponge and icing, to enhance the green. Check it out....

I have to say I was a bit worried about the taste as I HATE GREEN TEA!!!! But.... these taste fantastic!! I was really surprised at how much I like them.

You must make them!

That's an order!

  1. I love your teacup mould!! I've been eyeing them for ages and am still waiting for someone to buy them for me! I love green tea - as tea and in cakes so definitely making these :)

  2. Those teacup moulds are so cute! I had the same experience when I made Earl Grey cupcakes, I hate Earl Grey but loved the cakes! I guess everything is just better in cake form!! Ooh let me know if you try your giant cupcake mould - I still haven't plucked up the courage to give it a second attempt, but I really should!
