Earl Grey Icing
So I made Earl Grey cupcakes! The flavour is really good but tends to be overwhelmed by the icing- so if you're only making the one kind of icing, make it the Earl Grey one.
Earl Grey Cupcakes
250 grams butter, at room temperature
2 cups sugar
3 cups SR flour
1 cup milk
2 Earl Grey teabags.
Preheat the oven to 180 C. Spray 2 normal or mini-cupcake tins with Pure'N'Simple/ whatever you usually do.
Microwave the milk for 1.5 minutes. Dunk one of the teabags in it.
In a bowl, beat the butter until creamy. Add the sugar and cream the butter with the sugar until it is light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in half of the flour and the contents of the other teabag. Then add the milk (discarding the brewed bag) and the remaining flour and stir until just combined.
Fill the cupcake pans about 1/2 (mini tins) full. Bake 6-10 minutes (15~ for normal cupcakes). Lemon IcingThree Icings! All delicious.
1-2 cups icing sugar
3 butter slivers (yeah, yeah- like 5 grams each)
1 Earl Grey teabag
Juice of half a lemon
Juice of one small mandarin
Brew the teabag in 1/2 cup boiling water for a minute or so.
Shake about 1/2 cup icing sugar into each of three bowls- A, B, and XYZ. Add a butter sliver. Add a splash of tea to A and B. Cut open the teabag and put the dregs in A. Lemon juice in B and mandarin juice in XYZ.
Ice those cupcakes with a knife (no! chopsticks) and chuck them in a tupperware. Or just eat them. All. In the name of comparison tastetesting.
Make these! It only took me an hour start to finish =D Post pictures if you make them, hey!
