Milk Tea Cupcakes (Recipe) by sake-bento Milk Tea Cupcakes (Recipe) by sake-bento
Ceylon milk tea cupcakes topped with whipped cream and honey. Just like a proper cup of tea, but as a cupcake! A cupcake of tea? Fufufufu. Credit to Rosemary Pryor for the original recipe.

Ingredients:
-4 eggs
-1 1/2 cups sugar
-2 1/4 cups flour
-2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
-1 1/4 cups milk
-10 tablespoons butter
-4 teaspoons loose leaf ceylon (or the tea of your choice - Earl Grey, black, and/or Irish breakfast recommended)
-heavy whipping cream
-honey

Beat the eggs on high until they're fluffy.
Add sugar (slowly) until that gets fluffy too.
Mix baking powder and flour, then mix those into the egg+sugar mix.
Heat the milk on a stove until it nears simmering, then steep the ceylon for 4-5 minutes.
Add butter to milk and mix together. Don't allow the mixture to actually start boiling.
Add hot milk to the batter (slowly) and beat until it's combined. Don't overbeat, or you will have chewy cake instead of fluffy.
Bake at 350 degrees F. About 18 minutes for cupcakes, 30-35 minutes for a cake.

While the cake is baking, make the whipped cream. Uh... basically just take the heavy whipping cream and beat it on high with like an eggbeater or something until it becomes whipped cream. I like to go a little longer than necessary (but not as far as the butter stage) so that the texture is a little thicker and it resembles clotted cream. (Or you could also make clotted cream, but that's a different show).

Let the cupcakes cool, then pipe the cream and drizzle a light honey on top.

Yay!

I may try this recipe soon so may i ask, does the frosting melt easily? I live in singapore so the weather's really hot and humid and i don't want it to melt... And is it easy to make the whipped cream? Same reason as above, i usually fail when i try to make it but it might be cuz i don't beat it long enough...

If it gets too hot, it might. There are various binding agents people like to use to help it not melt. Just run a search for something like "keeping whipped cream stable" to find some tips.

Just curious, do you think this recipe would go well with chai tea?? =X

It might, but if you're brewing just chai, I'd recommend adding extra spices like ginger, cardamom, and/or cinnamon.
