Earl Grey and Honey Muffins

The unique flavor of Bergamot is enhanced by the addition of fresh orange zest in these delightful muffins while the savory flavor of black tea is sweetened with a touch of honey. It’s like having that perfect cup of morning tea…in food form.

Instructions

  1. 1Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and grease the muffin pan (approx 12 muffin cups) with butter.
  2. 2Warm milk in microwave or gently on stove top until it reaches between 130-160 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. 3Steep tea in the hot milk for approximately 5 minutes then squeeze out excess tea from bags and allow milk to cool as you assemble the other ingredients. (If there is less than 1 cup of milk left add milk as needed to make one full cup)
  4. 4In a medium sized bowl combine both flours, sugar, baking powder and salt
  5. 5In a large bowl combine the milk/tea mixture with the egg, butter, honey, and orange zest.
  6. 6Add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and stir just to combine.
  7. 7Divide mixture evenly amongst muffin cups (filling about 3/4 of the cup) and bake in pre-heated oven for 10-12 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature, preferably on a rainy day.
