Tea Leaves Cupcakes with Crumble Topping

A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL DEAR VISITORS, READERS AND BLOGGER FRIENDS FOR SPENDING TIME VISITING THIS HUMBLE BLOG OF MINE.  THIS BLOG HAS MANAGED TO ACHIEVE A RECORD OF OVER A MILLION PAGE VIEWS LAST FRIDAY.  
I HOPE WHATEVER I HAVE SHARED HERE IS OF INTEREST TO ALL.  FORGIVE ME IF I HAVE MADE SOME MISTAKES IN THE POSTS AND I THANK YOU  FOR HIGHLIGHTING THE ERRORS AND VALUED COMMENTS/ADVICES.
One more cupcake recipe which I have bookmarked to bake long time ago. The original recipe is from Florence [Do What I Like - Lady Grey Cupcakes with Yuzu Cream]. Florence uses Lady Grey [1 tablespoon], a light black tea blend, which has been flavoured with lemon and orange, scented with a hint of Bergamot. The aroma is definitely citrus.  Since I didn't have this tea, I substituted it with Lipton tea sachet just to try out this recipe before I buy the Lady Grey.  Instead of Yuzu Cream, I used crumble topping.
It's a good attempt as I believe most people will have tea bags in the kitchen to try these cupcakes. Steps are easy and straightforward. This cupcake has the tea aroma but not the citrus flavour without the Lady Earl tea.
The texture is soft, light and fine, with the crumble topping, it's a nice cupcake.   It's a keeper as I always have a liking for soft and light cupcakes that aren't too sweet too.  My hubby gave a thumbs up for this when he had one while the cupcake was still warm.

Kimmy said...

Hi Tze, you're welcome. Initially, my hubby told me it isn't that good then he tried another one. His opinion changed. It's good and gave a thumbs up. Something wrong with his taste-buds or mood? Hehehe!

Kimmy said...

Thanks Jeannie, I love trying various recipes especially the easy, simple and healthy ones. There are really so many varieties to try, the only problem is time constraint. Hope I can have enough time to try as many as possible.
